2023 Coverings Installation & Design Award winners announced

April 19, 2023 – ARLINGTON, Va. Coverings (coverings.com), the preeminent event for the ceramic tile and natural stone industry in North America, has announced Coverings Installation & Design (CID) Awards for 17 projects that showcase distinction in creativity, craftsmanship and outstanding use of materials. The 2023 award recipients were celebrated during an awards ceremony and reception, which took place April 19 at Coverings 2023 in Orlando, Florida.

Designers, architects, contractors, installers, builders, remodelers, retailers, and other professionals in the tile and stone business have the chance to showcase their innovative design work and masterful installation skills through the popular, annual CID Awards program.

This year’s award winners were recognized and celebrated for their outstanding accomplishments in the design and installation of ceramic tile and natural stone for residential and commercial projects. The winning projects were completed between January 2021 and December 2022, and they showcase highly distinctive tile and stone applications that demonstrate an original or unusual use of materials, incorporate innovative technology, display installation excellence, or successfully combine aesthetics with function in unique and interesting ways.

“One of the most exciting moments at Coverings each year is announcing the winning CID Award projects. We hold the winners and all of those who participated in the competition for 2023 in high regard,” said Jennifer Hoff, CEO of Taffy Event Strategies, the show management company for Coverings. “All of the project submissions clearly illustrate the strong level of dedication and innovation for which the tile and stone industry is known.”

Projects were judged by a panel of editors and industry leaders who evaluated the project submissions in terms of seven design and installation categorical designations. The categories included Commercial Ceramic Tile Design, Residential Ceramic Tile Design, Residential Stone Design, Commercial Ceramic Tile Installation, Residential Ceramic Tile Installation, Commercial Stone Installation, and Residential Stone Installation.
