The latest innovations bring form and efficiency to your next remodeling project

MARCH/APRIL 2011

The Ultimate Glider
Marvin Windows and Doors has re-invented the glider window with modern features and performance. The Clad Ultimate Glider features recessed hardware, one-hand operation, auto-locking, extruded aluminum cladding and a system for drainage. The windows are available in seven wood species and 19 exterior clad colors. marvin.com

Quartz Time
Known for its natural stone, porcelain, ceramic and metal tiles and slabs, Daltile now has a new collection: Daltile One Quartz. This man-made material, pictured here as a countertop, comes in 24 colors and two lines, Geo Flecks and Micro Flecks. Each offers a slightly different surface grain. daltile.com

Interactive Design
Newly founded Studio Herisson offers on-demand, customizable wallpaper featuring the designs of contemporary artists. Homeowners can visit the company’s interactive Web site to input room dimensions, then choose design, color palette, size and scale of graphics and more. studioherisson.com

Good Luck Symbol
Moravian Star Pendants from Meyda Custom Lighting are handcrafted from clear, seedy art glass in a design that dates back hundreds of years to a period in Moravia when the star symbolized protection and good luck in the home. These fixtures come in a variety of colors, sizes and styles and in a mahogany bronze, hand-applied finish. Energy-efficient options are available. meyda.com

A Prism of Color
Modono Glass has a new line of tiles that are manufactured utilizing dichroic (color changing) thin-film technology—a process that produces a prism of shifting hues. Available in multiple sizes, the Modono Glass Tile Collection was developed by interior designer Carrie Fazio. modonoglass.com

Wonderful Weave
Architectural Systems, Inc., uses dimensional milling techniques and hand-applied finishes to create textural woven panel surfaces for its new Woven Collection. Ideal for interior applications such as walls and ceilings, screens, fixtures and furniture, these surfaces feature wood veneers in Unfinished Natural and Specialty Woven lines. archsystems.com

Sculptural Sink
The Cenedese glass sink from Hastings Tile & Bath doubles as sculpture for the bath. Handmade in Murano, Italy, by master glass blowers, each is unique. Available in virtually any color combination, the sink measures approximately 16 inches in diameter; lead time is eight to 10 weeks. hastingstilebath.com
