Craven Dunnill has been voted winner of The Floor Tile of the Year 2018 in The Tile Association’s (TTA) Awards for its Chev Wood range of high-definition, parquet-styled porcelain tiles. This is the sixth time in eight years the company has won the accolade, reinforcing its UK market-leading position in the wall and floor tile sector.
Steve Whitehurst, Sales & Marketing Director at Craven Dunnill was presented with the award at the annual TTA Dinner, held May 18, commented: “The Chev Wood range from Italian producer Marazzi provides outstanding design with superior technical qualities and epitomises the brand values we deliver across the extensive Craven Dunnill range of wall and floor tiles”.
The Chev Wood range was introduced into the marketplace by Craven Dunnill in November 2017, at a time when parquet flooring was making a resurgence and small format tiles were on-trend. The company had read the market perfectly. Characterised by stunning, high-definition digital printing of the wood-look, in three natural tones, authentic texture and popular 540 x 110mm chevron shape, ever since sales to the trade have been excellent and consumer demand remains buoyant.
The Awards evening was crowned for the Craven Dunnill Group when sister company and manufacturer Craven Dunnill Jackfield picked up the award for Best Commercial Project (up to 250m²) for the striking faience tiled walls it bespoke-manufactured for the Barbecoa restaurant, Piccadilly.
