Did you know that we were a part of the creation of America’s Healthy Home? Last year we were approached by Dior Builders in Chicago, IL to see if we would like to donate tile to this home build. We were very excited to donate tile from three different collections for this house. ” According to the Chicago Tribune, “Dior’s Healthy Home 2018 is the first in the country to be built under the American Lung Association’s revised Health House™ guidelines, featuring everything from energy efficient products and innovative technologies, to green building materials and nontoxic furniture and accessories.”
Victoria Di Iorio who collaborated with Dior Builders on this project said, “By eliminating toxic chemicals, such as pesticides, biocides and flame retardants, from the home that are often found in building products, furniture and household cleaners, we can reduce ill health effects and promote wellness by creating a cleaner, greener and safer home.”
Here is a tour of the home which was finished earlier this year. We were able to donate tile from three of our collections, The Lena Collection, the Ventana Collection, and the Parasol collection. These tiles can be seen below. All three of these tiles are a part of our in-stock collection, Artisan Stone Tile and are available on two stone types, a carrara or limestone.

The next room we were featured in was one of the children’s bathrooms. Our Ventana pattern served as a decorative border at the top of the shower. The Ventana is shown on a 6×6 carrara marble in Deep blue.
Lastly, our Parasol Pattern was featured in the master bath as a shower backsplash. The Parasol Pattern is shown on a 12×12 carrara in the colorway Greige.
We were happy to donate tile for this project as all shipments that leave StoneImpressions’ have been hand-sealed using a non-toxic and environmentally friendly printing process. The sealant used on these tiles have very low VOC’s and are manufactured in compliance to California Environment Standards.
