New Letoon Installation

Here's the showroom's newest installation, Lycian Letoon Marble from Richards & Sterling. It's a beautiful wash of gray and white with a bit of warmth.

Richards & Sterling offers a great selection of shapes and patterns in their stones. I'm particularly fond of the diamond with the tiny black dot and it's beautifully set off by the slender subway pattern at the top with a band of tiny mosaic bricks to separate the two. Finish it off with matching architectural trim and you have a classic look that will never go out of style.
As always, our installations are best seen in person so come in and see what else is new!

Hello 2012, Happy New Year!

Well, 2012 is off to a running start and I'm racing to keep up!  We've been busy over the holiday break and the big news is that we tore down the iconic bathroom installation in the entrance to our showroom.

Those heron panels had been welcoming shoppers for years. How many Portland kids played in that tub while they waited for their parents to choose tile? We've heard some mixed feelings about it's demolition but everyone is eager to see what will go up in it's place.


It's quite the blank slate - like an art gallery awaiting the next show. The new ideas being proposed for the space are all very exciting, I'm sure you won't be disappointed. Come in and see all the  changes for yourself - or stay tuned! I'll post new pictures as soon as the new display is ready.

Best Wishes for the New Year from all of us at Pratt & Larson. We are looking forward to working with you on all the new projects 2012 has in store.
