Surfaces 2018

It's Vegas baby! Surfaces, is one of the largest flooring trade shows in the world and ranked in the Top 100 by USA Today.

Did I mention they hold it in Vegas? If you are in the flooring sales, the construction business or just looking for inspiration and innovation, this is the place. It's an amazing opportunity to meet new people, see new products and have a little fun. 

What is Surfaces and why do we go?

Surfaces or The International Surface Event is the largest North American event serving the floor covering, stone and tile industries..

The reason we go to all of these conferences is to learn about the best and most innovative products.

By investing in our vendor relationships, we are able to always find you the right prouduct at the right prices for all of your commercial flooring needs.

What do we do while we're there? So glad you asked!


Meet new people ...

You really can't build a relationship any bigger that this one in the flooring business.



Our owner Rick Elfman had the opportunity to meet Bob Shaw and reminisce about the old times and set up some tee times ;) If you know carpet, you know Shaw. 








See new products ...

Visiting all the booths and seeing the new innovation was inspiring.


Karndean was just one of the many that showed off their new designs for 2018.


We saw everything from waterproof to magnetic flooring. 

And have a little fun ...


Artificial turf is a growing category and who wouldn't love playing around on this for a little while.


We saw pigs playing in the mud on carpet, dogs trying to scratch the newest resilient flooring and real waterfalls showing off the true waterproof flooring.

2017: The Year In Review

The New Year is always a time for new beginnings. It's exciting to think about what we want to accomplish and create with the new year. But it's just as important to be grateful for how far we've come.

As we're looking forward to 2018, celebrating the new year, making goals and setting plans ... we wanted to take a minute to look back all the great things that happened in 2017.

As a general manager, I get invited to a lot of work conferences and social gatherings. But when you get invited by a premiere supplier to hang out in Tahoe for 3 days, you say yes!

This conference was the perfect reminder why investing in relationships is key to the success of any organization.
