Orono Station Remodel Installation Photos, Featuring Soho Porcelain by Rubble Tile
Rubble Tile Commercial Project Spotlight: Orono Station
Rubble Tile worked with the owner of Orono Station to select the floor tile for its recent remodel. Due to the high foot traffic potential of the gas station and market, a durable, yet appealing product like porcelain tile was a must. Owner Christy Erickson wanted something warmer than your typical gas station or convenience store porcelain flooring; something inviting and engaging.
The selection of Soho porcelain tile for the market’s flooring definitely adds a warmth and sophistication that is missing in most stores.
From the West Metro’s lakerpioneer.com (http://lakerpioneer.com/2016/07/10/orono-station-opens-to-the-public/):
Erickson said that the vision for the space was more than just a gas station and convenience store. The seating area comprises a sizable portion of the store, complete with a fireplace and wall-spanning historical photograph.
“For most stores, the goal is to get you in, and out,” said Erickson. “We think of it as more of a community store than a convenience store, grocery store…”
We think they hit the mark beautifully!

The Soho Porcelain Tile Line
Its finish is reminiscent of the patina’d walks and squares of Soho that change and wear beautifully over time. Soho by Mediterranea delivers on everything that the hottest design district in Manhattan represents; tradition and warmth enhanced by a modern energy that is unmistakable.
By drawing upon the traditional urban look of ages past, Mediterranea’s Soho series delivers a modern yet rustic, time-worn vibe to any residential or commercial enclave. Produced in the USA in a stunning 18” x 36” format, Soho offers a minimalist cement look in a selection of colors demanded by today’s design community.
Featuring a color palette of Graphite, Mocha, Taupe and Grey, Soho impeccably captures the rustic look with a contemporary feel.
Soho offers a modern, minimalist look that’s just as much at home in a suburban living room as it is in a converted loft in Lower Manhattan, retail store or restaurant. Think big – and connect the traditional with the modern with Soho by Mediterranea.
