Come join me, Sarah Marek, for an inside look at the world of luxury tile and stone at Ann Sacks, ASID Industry Partner! Over 40 years ago, a woman named Ann Sacks fell in love with the craftsmanship and beauty of handmade Mexican tiles and began importing and selling them out of her home in Portland, OR. Her namesake company grew rapidly but never lost the commitment to quality and craftsmanship. Today, Ann Sacks leads the industry in luxury tile and stone with unique products from around the world, including the exclusive Made collection, handcrafted in Portland. I joined the Ann Sacks family in 2021 to be part of a new endeavor: the first Ann Sacks Slab Gallery. I have an interior design education and nearly a decade of experience in the stone industry including engineered and natural stone, manufacturing, importing, and fabricating stone slabs, tiles, architectural elements and furniture. ASID has been an invaluable part of my career. We’ll start the day off with a tour of the showroom and overview of different types of stone and tile. You’ll have an opportunity to observe me or one of my design consultants work with a client on selections for a project. We’ll have lunch in the Design District. I’m happy to offer advice and even review resumes and portfolios. I can also provide samples for current projects. Lastly, you will get a sneak preview of the exclusive new slab gallery which is still under construction. Attire should be business casual and please wear closed toed shoes and a mask. FYI: I’m taking up to 2 students for this experience.
