About Us

We supply projects large and small, residential and commercial, regional and national. Our focus is triple bottom line: people, planet and profits.


Our mission is to provide you the best possible ceramic and stone shopping experience. That starts with a beautiful showroom, a large inventory and work partners dedicated to service, innovation and creativity.

We pride ourselves on helping you find the right products for your project.

TxD's Plymouth showroom is really four showrooms in one. There's something for everyone ...

OfficeStaff2Main Showroom—  Primarily for residential customers, the main showroom emphasizes inventoried products
and those with lead times of six weeks or less.

Studio Showroom—  Contemporary and design forward, this showroom displays more architectural products. Lead times are typically six to 10 weeks.

Slab Showroom—  Freestanding displays showcase the new large formats that are defining the next evolution of design.

Outlet—  We've moved the Outlet next to the main showroom for your convenience. Save BIG on first-quality tiles that are discontinued or limited stock.
