These innovative lines are part of the brand's growing palette of quality floor and wall products, created to inspire residential and commercial designs and applications.
"This new product launch represents Daltile's dedicated focus on style, design and quality, and we're pleased to be able to meet the diverse needs of residential and commercial audiences alike," said Lori Kirk-Rolley, senior marketing director for Daltile.

As the industry leader in tile and stone products, Daltile continues to deliver a rich palette of stylish products that not only help create inspired design, but speak to emerging flooring trends.
