A new lifestyle-inspired, high-tech showroom graces Vancouver that includes new collections from an old world. Ann Sacks, the Portland-based high-end tile manufacturer and distributor, recently opened a new space in the Armoury District, feeling right at home among European supercar dealers, fine cultural cuisine and some of the city’s top designers.
A high-tech web wall for designers to showcase their work and beautiful lifestyle vignettes make Ann Sacks' new showroom in Vancouver an inspirational, creative experience. At Ann Sacks.
“Right now, everybody’s looking for Moroccan,” says Robin Richter, communications leader and interiors PR at Kohler Co., the parent company to Ann Sacks.
Among their new signature lines available at the showroom is the Lux Decorative, an intricate marble tile inspired by the solid bronze doors of ancient mosques, adorned with Moroccan motifs that glimmer as light bounces across their surface.

“It’s a little bit like the screens that you see when you go over to Morocco, where they have the sunlight come in but also have the wind or the air coming through,” says Richter.
The journey across land and time won’t end there. Two new stone floor tiles — Siene and Visconte — speak to Old World French parquet flooring, echoing the beauty and romance of centuries-old well-trod stone. Hand-worked and hand-finished, subtle grey-green veining can be seen in the white marble.
The showroom itself will take you on a journey through several vignettes (including kitchen and fireplace), and to a “web wall” made of several large screens, so designers can bring their iPads and fire up their own websites or Houzz pages to show their clients.
Experience rich design inspired from around the world at the Luxury Home & Design Show, May 1–3 at the Vancouver Convention Centre.
