Hudson Tile Supply is a boutique "to the trade tile showroom" providing architects and designers with access to the very best in porcelain, glass, ceramics and stone with a focus on US/North American manufactured materials – a real bonus for projects that require LEED points and have short lead times. Our superbly curated line-up is not only unique, but will bring the most creative vision to life all within today’s demanding commercial construction budgets.
Chief Tile Officer, Christine Jacobs, has over 20 years experience in managing and selling to and innovating with creative industries throughout the USA and Canada. A native Torontonian with a background in hospitality management and marketing, she has worked extensively in high-end book and magazine production and publishing, run a 10-person creative studio as well as marketing communications agency. Over the past 7 years, as a relative newcomer to the NYC market, Chris has been given tremendous opportunities to collaborate with some of the best in the A&D community, partnering on high profile, large-scale projects such as Barclays Arena, Google NYC headquarters, JetBlue corporate offices, Tommy Hilfiger’s LA Flagship store, the transformation of Madison Square Garden, and the revitalization of the Delta terminal including the Club and restaurants at Laguardia and JFK Airports.
A real specialty and personal passion is hospitality. Working with top design firms specializing in this field, Chris has worked on many of NYC’s full and quick service restaurants such as Le Pain Quotidien, Chef’s Club, Dig Inn, Catch, Tarallucci e Vino, Schnippers, Havana Central, Hill Country Chicken, Terroir, and the hotly anticipated, Ocean Prime. And a little further from home, hotel projects such as the new and exciting 21C group in Cincinnati, Bentonville, Raleigh- Durham, Louisville and soon to come OKC and Kansas City.
Hospitality has segued into multi-unit residential projects as owners and developers hot to replicate boutique hotel amenities and experiences in their projects have selected to work with Chris on myriad new and exciting opportunities. Architects and designers envision the overall direction for a project, but it’s the general contractors and installers that make these visions a reality. Chris has strong relationships with the construction trade, many find her positive can-do attitude refreshing and her willingness to assist when budget restrictions or product availability become issues. She overcomes obstacles to ensure the material is available when required and truly understands the concept of customer service.
When working with Chris, she makes it her mission to find the right material for the project within tight timelines and even tighter budgets. It’s this sentiment that has allowed her to work with the best of the best here in NYC and around the country, and is the defining factor in the creation of Hudson Tile Supply.
