Iconic Tile Provider Expands Long Island Presence Out East in its 100th Year
NEW YORK, NY — February 2021 — Nemo Tile + Stone, a New York City-based provider of top-performing surface materials, is excited to announce the lease signing of its new, 5,700 square foot, showroom located in the heart of Southampton, New York. The new showroom, which comes as the brand celebrates its 100th year in business, is located at the intersection of Montauk Highway and Flying Point Road (56 Flying Point Road, Suite 3, Southampton, NY, 11968), marking its presence amidst the high-end boutiques, restaurants, and art galleries for which the prestigious town is known. Set to open its doors this spring, the showroom will house Nemo Tile + Stone’s extensive, premium product portfolio and serve as an area resource center for designers.
“We are eager to begin this chapter in the Hamptons, and expand our horizons further, bringing both Nemo Tile + Stone’s expertise and extensive line-up of products to our long-time clients who have relocated out east during the pandemic,” comments Matt Karlin, President of Nemo Tile + Stone. “I am looking forward to seeing the success of the location and hit the ground running with the addition of an experienced team lead that is well-versed in the area’s needs.”
The Southampton location will be led by newly appointed Showroom Manager and Design Consultant, Herb Crestani who joins the team with over 16 years in the surfacing industry as it relates to the larger Hamptons region. In his role, Crestani will oversee the procurement of materials for customers, and utilize his vast experience in the business to establish new relationships with clients, as well as foster existing ones.
“Throughout the 20 years that I’ve known Matt Karlin we have spoken about collaborating on a showroom,” explains Crestani. “Finally making that dream a reality is particularly exciting and I look forward to making the showroom a one of a kind shopping and design experience.”
Ahead of the showroom opening its door officially this spring, a temporary space located on the premises is available to service current customer needs. Crestani will similarly oversee operations and serve as the contact for designers, contractors, and architects alike, providing guidance in the specification process for projects of every scale. The temporary space is open from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Monday-Friday, and is located at 56 Flying Point Road, Southampton, NY 11968.
