National Capital Region

On September 19th we were hosted by Affiliate Member Ceragres Tile at a Design Fair. This event brought industry professionals together to view the latest offerings from Ceragres and  for a broader opportunity to visit other trusted industry associates.

Here is the DDA team from the National Capital Region. We are standing in front of Caesar Stone Quartz a new addition to the Ceragres collection. There was every shade of taupe, grey and black quartz available including a variety of marble looks.


From pastel geometrical, elongated geometrics to black, white and greys there is a tile style for everyone!


The wonderful selection of fabrics from Robert Allen seemed to be endless. Claudio Cefaloni & Lesia Spolsky showed a wide variety of drapery and upholstery fabrics for multiple uses. Take a look at all the beautiful colour and pattern combinations!


During the Design Fair the 2020 Design platform was demonstrated to us by Brian Fyfe and Santiago Morales. They were available to illustrate and address any questions about the established software program of this Canadian company which allows the user to easily create plans for furniture placement, kitchens, bathrooms, closets and many other features!


Here are the lovely ladies of Cera Gres. It is always a pleasure to see the latest products in tiles and quartz beautifully displayed through their store and these professionals are so knowledgeable and helpful!


Ceragres always provide a delicious spread of morning treats and juice for all who attended their Design fair. As a parting gift we recieved a scented candle and a fresh apple for the road!


Thank you Ceragres for another  well planned and informative event.
