Checked all my local tile distributors, and a few others throughout the country, and can't find anyone that sells those. Good luck with the search!

Matthew, yes I do! Any help is appriciated!

Steve, My supplier of that manufacturer out here is OTM (oregon tile & marble)

Thats wierd you couldnt find anything on ceramiche grazia, they are some very finely made ceramics, I would've figured they were popular.

As of now more material will be on our shores by the end of june, who knows how long it will sit in customs.

Jeremy-

Wish you needed the 5 x 5 or 2.5 x 5, have a bit of each sitting in my garage. Installed the Grazia Rixi a few times, very nice stuff, though never that liner.
(and the Sonoma Tantrum, which is also very nice)

Had thought about suggesting that I could probably peel one piece off a sample board in my local showroom and send it to you, and get 4 others to do the same, but that could be seen as encouraging interstate vandalism and theft, and I don't need to get RICO'ed by the feds.

Sorry about the wait, inshallah.

Gueuze, what store in your area has it? Is it a chain supplier?

This may sound crazy and expensive... but those 5 pieces packed in plastic and air in a small box shouldn't be to expensive to fed-ex. Contact the manufacturer... they might suggest a distributor who might/does have them... even if they're in Mex, Can or Italy ...?

Or... I could call "my cousin Vinny" but that would cost you an arm and a leg.

Steve- It's Best Tile, 32 stores in the northeast. Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Albany, Poughkeepsie, and Saratoga Springs, probably 6 pieces right here in NY.

I like the Fedex from Italy idea, though a billing nightmare, and who's gonna pay? Not Jeremy.

jeremy unless you did the measuring id just make the shop pay you for the job and let them take care of getting the rest of the materials and install it when they come.
