SYLMAR, CA -- Walker Zanger, a comprehensive stone and tile company with locations throughout the U.S., has announced its acceptance of a 2009 Silver ADEX Award for the hand-crafted designs featured in the Sonja Mosaics Collection. Sponsored by Design Journal magazine, ADEX -- Awards for Design Excellence -- is one of the largest and most prestigious product design award programs in the U.S.

The Sonja Mosaics Collection by Walker Zanger bridges two worlds of design, incorporating both antique Roman elements and modern-day influences. Individual tiles within the mosaics are made from hand-cut marble and limestone -- some are even sourced from ancient Roman quarries. Each mosaic is painstakingly assembled by master craftsmen of Tunisia, where the artistry and technique are kept alive today. The updated color palette of the Sonja Mosaics Collection tends toward the graphic boldness of modern design, with a color palette of blacks, grays and creams accented by deep reds and yellows.

The Sonja Mosaics Collection features 12 different pattern variations and a small brick field tile in seven different colors. Its eclectic appeal makes it ideal for virtually any room of the home, as well as for light commercial applications such as restaurants and boutiques.

This is the third consecutive year that Walker Zanger has received an ADEX Award. In 2008 Walker Zanger received a Gold ADEX for the Studio Moderne Collection by Michael Berman and a Silver ADEX for the Vibe Mosaics Collection. In 2007, the Luxe Vanity also won a Silver ADEX.
