The new 24,000 square foot showroom, which officially opened its doors in August on the upper west side of Atlanta, is a one stop shop thanks to its unique selection of high quality products. From ceramic tiles and stone slabs, to plumbing from high end suppliers such as Devon & Devon, Grohe, Aquabrass and Perrin & Rowe, Ciot’s offering is vast and suitable for any project, regardless of scope. The company also recently added hardwood flooring to its product repertoire, providing the utmost quality, the richest colors and the most exquisite finishes the forest has to offer. In addition, Ciot goes beyond its materials by offering multiple expert and customized services, including made-to-measure mosaics from Ciot Studio.

“We are proud to break ground in Atlanta, one of the biggest and most notorious interior design markets in North America. Our impressive and exclusive product offering combined with our in-house expertise is what makes Ciot unique and innovative. We are excited to serve the design aficionados and professionals in Atlanta,” said Patrick Pepin, Managing Partner at Ciot.

A few doors down from the showroom is a 55,000 square foot facility combining a slab gallery and a warehouse, which opened in the spring. The gallery is the first of its kind in the Atlanta area as it provides clients with the opportunity to browse through nearly 200 different types of slabs, arriving from the four corners of the world, in a temperature controlled environment. An unmatched shopping experience with a unique vibe.

These new Atlanta locations add to Ciot’s growing presence in Canada and the United States which includes operating showrooms in Montreal, Toronto, Quebec City, Detroit, as well as business offices in New York City and Carrara, Italy.
