Karen Pearse Global Direct (KPGD) announced its exclusive partnership with Winckelmans, the French creator of vitrified porcelain tile. KPGd will be the sole purveyor of Winckelmans in the U.S., opening access to this brand to the U.S. market.

"With the unparalleled craftsmanship and creativity of Winckelmans, we immediately saw the potential for truly extraordinary projects with designers, hotels, and major retailers in the U.S.," said Karen Pearse, founder of KPGD.

Since the founding of Winckelmans in 1894, the brand has been distinguished for the exceptional quality of its unglazed, vitrified porcelain tile.
