Coverings, the definitive fair for ceramic tile and natural stone in North America, recently took place in Orlando, Florida. With over a thousand exhibitors representing more than 40 countries from all over the world, Coverings is a must for anyone involved in the design industry. The show attracts over 25,000 attendees every year! This year we tapped New York City trendspotter and interior designer, Keita Turner, to peruse the aisles and find the newest and brightest in classic and new designs to outfit your kitchens, baths, floors, and ceilings with. She covers everything from "gritty chic" designs to geometric tiles that bring the retro look back into focus. Turner even delves into tiles that look like rugs and new tiles that have that old world look that still appeals today.
