Sam Block and D& B Tile of Pompano. . . It’s a Family Affair
Sam Block is owner of Custom Air Designs, an air conditioning and refrigeration contracting firm in Pompano Beach. When he and his wife decided to install new tile in their waterfront condo just off Bayview in Fort Lauderdale, they didn’t have to go far to make their choices. His company has serviced many of the D&B Tile stores in Broward County for the past 15 years. And, they are related by marriage to Steve Goodman, one of the D&B Tile Partners.
“We walked into the Pompano tile store and spoke with Missy Ford. She got the general idea of what we wanted and showed us a beautiful new line that was recently imported from Italy. This was the Ceramiche Refin Teatro 10×60 Foyer 1R wood look. This collection was inspired by the interiors of theLuciano Pavarotti Municipal Theatre of Modena in northern Italy.”
Actors, audiences and theatre workers form part of a project in which the references to the wood, the stage language and the traditional posters of the works performed, explore the magic of endless evenings, creating an evocative sense of tradition and prestige. This gives the flooring a classic look and feel that is totally unique and innovative.
The company has recently completed the re-modernization and expansion of its offices and production plant in Salvaterra, including a renovated head-office and the opening of its first flagship showroom, a meeting point for architects and designers in the heart of Milan Refin Studio, which is a central part of Northern Italy’s design district.
“We’re on the water with a dock and spend a lot of time outdoors. We assumed the wood look tiles would be noisy and might require a lot of strip carpets to deaden the noise. We were wrong. We have two dogs and are pleasantly surprised at how quiet this is compared to the old laminate flooring we had previously.
“We have had a number of friends and neighbors stop by and everyone is impressed with the appearance and style of this porcelain tile. Our tile contractor was ltanhem Flooring, Inc. He came highly recommended by D&B Tile and was absolutely phenomenal throughout the tear out and installation. We couldn’t be more pleased with the entire project.”
