Our resident design specialist and owner, George Lufriu, will help you create your dream home! George comes from a long lineage of Tampa natives, and since the late 1880’s, the Lufriu family has made their name as craftsmen, carpenters, and pool builders. Following in the well-beaten path of his forefathers, George started in the pool building business, however, seeking to find his own direction George discovered the tile business, where his talent has blossomed. After his first job was featured in Home and Garden Magazine, George took a large and prestigious account in Harbor Island. Before he knew it, he had two full-time crews laying tile, on top of a pool construction business that was in full swing. Not a bad start, considering he was only 19 years old!
His career has been highlighted with accomplishments like the period he spent traveling to colleges to instruct on marble, tile, and glass mosaic installation; working on Eric Clapton’s bungalow in Antigua; and, after a crash-course in granite, working for Triton Ship Works putting elegant touches in some of the world’s most exclusive yachts. In 1995 George Lufriu built his first outlet store, selling products and offering installation tips and techniques, and he and his wife, April, have been working hard to provide excellent service across the Tampa Bay area.
