|6.||Shaw Hardwoods FlooringBy: Latricia Thomas A local company that's known for its carpet is taking the hardwood flooring world by storm with their engineered product called Epic. When you see Shaw trucks on the Interstate, you might assume they're carrying carpet.Shaw's Vice President of Hard Surface Business Development Scott Sandlin says, We're becoming more than just a carpet company and it gives people a lot of opportunity.But if those trucks came from the South Pittsburg plant, the freight actually comes from a forest. After adjusting to the temperature in the factory for a few days, stacks of wood veneers made from hickory, walnut, oak and cherry, move on to the assembly line. You have a back veneer and a face veneer and they will go into the press and they will be adhered to an HDF board, like a sandwich, Sandlin says.When the humitidy changes in your home, or the temperature changes, it doesn't shrink or grow.After the press, it's time for a quick touch up before the wood is sliced into strips. The 145 employees that work in the South Pittsburg plant check the planks during several steps of the manufacturing process, thankful these jobs returned after Shaw shut down the outdated yarn facility that once stood here.It was devastating when we shut it down so we were glad we could bring wood into this community to make it into what it is today, says Sandlin. So that made a big difference for South Pittsburg and Marion County.Back on the line, it's time for cosmetics. It goes down this line, with 8 or 9 stages of the finish being put on. It's just impractical to do it outside of the factory. It's almost like paining your car out of the factory, according to Sandlin.Add the Made in America box, and it's time to ship to distributors and then to a home near you. We are very proud that this product is made in Marion County and ships out of our distribution facilities in Northwest Georgia, Sandlin says. That's very important to us. ||How To Select/Purchasing||3||5455|

Style is broad and has become highly influenced by the internet which allows consumers to add their own personal influence when decorating. Ethnic and global styles, where consumers decorate with items from their travels is one trend Joe has been seeing. Another trend is the revival of the bland color palette, full of whites and grays where colors and textures are built up.

|24.||Florida TileFlorida Tile is proud to launch its newest HDP-High Definition Porcelain, Quartez. This Color Body Porcelain is inspired by the durability and beauty of natural Quartzite. Originally Sandstone, a very soft stone, Quartzite is created through extreme heat and pressure in the Earth. This metamorphosis creates a very robust rock that is resistant to chemical weathering. Much like Quartzite, the Quartez series from Florida Tile is heavily resistant to wear and tear, rated both for commercial and exterior applications
Quartez is available in three colors; Citadel the darkest and most varied, much like that of Quartzite, makes a bold statement. The Fortress is a Grayish Green that adapts to its environment and plays a cool background to a modern interior. The Cornerstone a more neutral play on a Golden tone that will lend itself to brighten any room as a floor or wall covering.
Created in a clefted punch, the surface has a heavy texture that contributes to the slip resistance, but makes the tile soft to the touch. Along with this, the HDP printing gives the design a heavy graphical movement between tiles and colors, creating a dramatic effect. Like all HDP products, the 3 colors are created with high graphic variation.
The sizes available are 12x12, 18x18 and one of the most popular sizes in both luxury homes and commercial construction 12x24. The larger rectangular size adds a contemporary dimension of style and the Color Body Porcelain adds quality and durability.
Available with bullnose, cove base and corners, listellos and a list of mosaics, the line is full of possibilities that you would expect from a premium line. Notable items are the 3 dimensional split face mosaic that will add an extra touch to your accent wall or backsplash.
