We sat down with Mattia to learn a little more about the mind behind the tile.
1. What is your favourite part of your job?
There are too many to choose from! I love the culture behind the business and the entire tile industry. I get to meet the most incredible people who feel like family. It’s also a blessing to be able to travel the world looking for the latest design trends to inspire our clients.
2. Did you always know you wanted to work in the family business?
Not always! I did makeup artistry for years before working at Euro Tile & Stone. As I got older, I developed a passion for all things design so I joined the family business as a Sales Consultant. This was an amazing experience because I got to use my creativity to help people design their dream spaces. Since then, I have grown into my role as Creativity & Product Manager and couldn’t be happier.
3. Outside of tile, what is your passion?
I have always had a passion for cosmetics, fashion (both clothing and home), and travel ever since I was young. I also am very passionate about helping animals. I rescued my dog, Vegas, from the SPCA and have been an avid supporter ever since then.
4. What do you think the biggest tile trends of 2021 will be?
Colour has made a huge comeback! This is great because it lifts people’s spirits which I think we could all use right about now. Patterns are another big trend for 2021 which is also really fun to play with! We’re also noticing that the large format trend is here to stay and is only getting more and more popular as time goes on.
5. What is your favourite collection at the moment?
This is a really tough one for me because I have so many different styles that I love! I can go from more of an organic, muted vibe to very modern or glamourous.
If you’re making me chose one, the first one that comes to mind is Sicily. I love how calming it is. On my honeymoon last year in Greece, it was installed in the entire boutique hotel and it was so serene.
6. Tell us a fun fact about yourself.
My parents started the business while my mom was pregnant with me. Since I was around the industry so much growing up, I guess it was just bound to happen that I would be a part of the business someday! Now that I’m expecting my first little one, I cant wait to bring them around as well!
