All that glitters! (Orlando Airport tile)

decor_divaFebruary 8, 2006

Hello All!

Has anyone noticed the tile in one of the shops at The Orlando International Airport, that sparkles as the overhead lights hit it?

I also saw this tile at Forever 21 a new shop in our local mall. I am trying desperately to locate the exact tile this is. Appears to be a metal flake in the stone that goes wild when the light hits it. I would LOVE to put this in my kid's bathroom!

Is it a mosaic tile? Try

I thought I remember seeing this tile at Expo.

You are the very best investigators I know, With your help -I am confidant we will track this tile down! :)

This is what I have learned so far...
The name of the Orlando airport shop is "Swatch." A Swiss shop. I was told by their customer service that the tile is made "just for them" by a company in Switzerland. Hmmmm...

Forever 21's customer service told me that their tile was made in Korea and is a Terazzo tile with tiny slivers of glass and mirrors in it.

All I know is they both look very similar. A striking effect when the overhead lights dance on them. Looks as though you sprinkled sparkly confetti all over the floor. They are large (perhaps 16X16) square tiles.

You can get the same effect from any of the "pearl" granites (Black, Blue, Emerald, or Brown), as well as Black Galaxy.
