Starbucks is the master of re-invention and they have recently opened up a “concept shop” in Amsterdam headed in a totally new direction. The store will feature “local” flavor where they will showcase new coffee, design and European food ideas.
The new store is in an old bank vault in Amsterdam’s historic Rembrandt square and was transformed with the help of 35 local artists, who added “design” touches like coating one wall with recycled bicycle tubes. “I was inspired… by the role 17th century Dutch traders played in bringing coffee to the world,” said Liz Muller, Starbucks’ Concept Design Director, in the press release.

Last year I was lucky enough to visit the latest Coverings Show.
Coverings is the international tile and stone show that was in the Orlando area.
Here are some of the beautiful tiles I wanted to share with you.
Beautiful, glossy concave white tiles. Also available with the reversed -convex form.
This would be beautiful in a hotel lobby or behind a bar.
Another exciting glass tile options. Mixing it up.
Gorgeous! Lovely hand-painted tiles with a beautiful range of tones.
Raised tiles are a definite trend.
Not sure where you want to use this tile but I wanted to share…..
