I found this bulletin board while hunting for a Remington floor tile to match what my builder put in my house 9 years ago.

I'm searching for 8" x 8" 1/4" thick Remington ceramic tile (Ivory) 792614 96 (printed on the carton).

An old posting recommended contacting a company called Laufen. No luck there. Can anyone be of assistance?

Actually, it WAS a Laufen tile. It was Laufen/Remington Foundation Ivory 8x8 (I still have the old code #'s.)

When Laufen was bought by Roca a number of years ago, they stopped purchasing this tile as it was actually made by a company named Vitra out of Turkey.

So, you're actually looking for either name. (It's the exact same tile.)

We still have about 5 sf left in a Remington box, and approx 24 sf in the Vitra boxes. We're located near Chicago.

You could also try Hoboken Tile near New York. They carried both Remington & Vitra as well.

Hope this helps!

I am trying to match a Remington tile put in my 8 year old house built by Pulte. I live in San Antonio. I do not have a number, but the box has beige on it. The color is basically white with a little beige swirled in it. Does anyone have an idea of where in San Antonio I could find Remington tile.
