Coverings 2022 CID Award Winners Announced

Coverings (coverings.com), the preeminent event for the ceramic tile and natural stone industry in North America, has bestowed Coverings Installation & Design (CID) Awards for 15 tile and stone projects that showcase distinction in creativity, ingenuity and technical achievement. The 2022 award recipients were honored during an awards ceremony and reception, which took place April 5 in the Coverings Lounge at Coverings 2022. The winning projects are also on display in Central Hall, Booth C6613, at the Las Vegas Convention Center through April 8.   
The annual CID Awards program provides an opportunity for designers, architects, builders, installers, and others in the tile and stone industry to demonstrate their creative design projects and superior installation craftsmanship.  
This year’s award winners were recognized and celebrated for their outstanding accomplishments in the design and installation of tile and stone for residential and commercial projects. The awarded projects showcase highly distinctive tile and stone applications, involving tile and stone execution, original usage of materials, and overall design and purpose. 
“Awarding the winning projects is one of the most exciting highlights at Coverings each year, and we are extremely proud of the winners as well as all of the designers and installers who entered the competition for 2022,” said Jennifer Hoff, president of Taffy Event Strategies, the show management company for Coverings. “All of the project submissions clearly illustrate the strong level of dedication and innovation within the tile and stone industry.”  
Projects were judged by a panel of editors and industry leaders who evaluated the project submissions in terms of seven categorical designations. The categories included Commercial Tile Design, Residential Stone Design, Residential Tile Design, Commercial Stone Installation, Commercial Tile Installation, Residential Stone Installation, and Residential Tile Installation. 
Projects receiving special recognition were awarded within four categorical destinations, including Artistic Use of Tile, Innovative Use of Tile, Artistic Installation, and International.
