Laminam by Crossville, our über-hip line of lean profile porcelain panels, is a dream for designers of retail environments.
At nearly 3′x10′ in outer dimensions (yes, that’s feet...not inches!) and only 3mm in thickness (yes, we said THREE MILLIMETERS), these gorgeously crafted porcelain tile panels act as extremely durable, versatile surface skins. They look sleek, elegant, contemporary and ultra-fashionable, but they perform like workhorses—everything you could want for surfaces in busy retail spaces.
This high profile installation in the shoe salon in Macy’s 34th Street location at Herald Square, New York City, is a prime example. Laminam by Crossville earned a spot in the world’s largest department store for good reason.

Panels from our Oxide collection skin the ceiling of the overhang, as well as the prominent signage wall at far right. The material seems to almost frame the shoe salon, providing an gateway to an upscale shopping experience for store guests.
The Oxide line features a textural, metallic look that’s sophisticated and high fashion, yet very inviting. The darker tone of this colorway provides a chic contrast to the areas other finishes. Because Laminam by Crossville is so durable, it will perform well on walls that are constantly brushed and touched by busy shoppers, and its lightness makes it simple to install even on the ceiling.
Here are key features that make any Laminam by Crossville line ideal for retail installations.
