Q: What type of business do you operate – what do you sell, or what service do you provide?We are the first company in the world to produce and install backlit translucent stone and glass tiles. We specialize in sale and installation of natural stone tiles, thin-stone veneer, glass and metal accents, leather floor and wall coverings and faux painting. We provide design and estimation services together with consultation in the showroom or onsite.Q: Where are you from, and why did you decide to open your business in Summit County?My roots come from middle Europe, the Czech Republic, but I have lived in Colorado for the last 10 years. The reason I wanted to open a very specialized tile and faux painting store in Summit County was to give our customers an opportunity to see and have the latest and the best in natural stone tiles and faux painting in both sale and installation.

Q: What experience do you have in this field?I have been installing tiles and stone for the last 18 years. I traveled extensively around the world to see what kind of natural products are being used in other countries.Q: What sets your business apart from other similar businesses?Our invention of the backlit tiles sets us apart from any tile store anywhere. Even without this invention we do not think there are any similar businesses. We specialize in a very small area of the building industry and we take the customer from his or her idea through design, selection of the stone to the installation and the finished product.

Q: What types of customers do you hope to reach in Summit County?We hope to reach customers that like the feel and look of natural products. The customers we want to accommodate are the ones that are not afraid of new materials, colors and designs. We want to reintroduce all kinds of non-mainstream materials to any customer that wants to make their home cozier and better looking.Q: What are your plans for your company’s future?We would like to continue working with our great customers and slowly introduce a lot of specialty natural materials into the building community in this area.
