As most of you know Buildex was this past week. Unfortunately, it was scheduled the same time as the Home and Garden Show and I think that impacted on the attendance of both shows. But it’s always worthwhile to drop by and see what’s new. Sarah and I had a break in the action on Thursday afternoon giving us the chance to stop by.
Here’s a few of our highlights:
Contrast Lighting; they never disappoint. There were some nice additions to their glass pendant collections and also sconces. I want to chat with them further to discuss LED lighting. I think that’s the way of the future.
Silestone; We recently had a presentation at our breakfast meeting on Silestone. We were introduced to their new products and had a great education in the making of Silestone. Seeing the full slabs at Buildex was pretty impressive.
Carpet tile; We found the perfect charcoal carpet tile from Main Street Carpet Tile for a project that we are working on that is about 1 ½ years out. Carpet tile is so sensible for commercial spaces with high traffic. I can’t wait to see it installed.
All in all the show was smaller but still worth attending. We got some good ideas and had the chance to meet some new suppliers.
