Coverings (, the preeminent event for the ceramic tile and natural stone industry in North America, today announced the 25 projects receiving the coveted Coverings Installation & Design (CID) Awards for 2021. The CID Awards celebrate outstanding achievements in the design and installation of tile and stone in both residential and commercial projects.


“The number of submissions we received for this year’s CID Awards is a true testament to the resiliency and strength of the tile and stone industry,” said Jennifer Hoff, president of Taffy Event Strategies, LLC, the show management company for Coverings. “The 2021 CID Award winners’ projects further establish the adaptability and beauty of tile and stone. Coverings is honored to award and recognize the CID Award winners’ creative and sophisticated applications, each of which showcases the latest industry advancements and trends.” 


The submissions were based on tile and stone execution, original usage, and overall design and purpose. Special recognition was given to those projects exemplifying spectacular tile and stone applications. A panel of editors and industry leaders evaluated the project submissions.


Projects were awarded using eight categorical designations: Residential Tile Installation, Residential Tile Design, Residential Stone Installation, Residential Stone Design, Commercial Tile Installation, Commercial Tile Design, Commercial Stone Installation, and Commercial Stone Design. Projects receiving special recognition were awarded using six categorical destinations: Mosaic, International, Restoration, Community Project, Artistic Installation, and Artistic Use of Tile.
