Bringing the Outdoors Inside

We have a winner!  Congratulations to Kavitha Iyer, whose mosaic mural “Starry Nights” was selected as the first place winner for the prestigious mosaic design contest – Design ‘N Gather 2019. 

Coastal Tile & Marble installed this award-winning mosaic inside the iconic cupola atop the rooftop of the Nomad Hotel in New York City.  A challenging installation with arched ceilings and curved walls separated by structural arches.  Kudos to the Coastal team for an installation to be proud of and to Kavitha for her inspiring design!

Many thanks to Tile Magazine for allowing us to share their article from the January/February 2019 issue:
