Founder and CEO
Nancy Epstein has one goal: to make the world a better place, one tile at a time.
Nancy began her career in the luxury stone and tile industry in 1987. After designing custom cabinets for her young son's bathroom, the cabinet maker was so impressed with the results that he asked Nancy to come work for him in his Tenafly, New Jersey showroom. Nancy quickly recognized that the cabinetry showroom could do more business if they would offer more products for the bath and kitchen, such as tile and stone! She took over the business and soon Artistic Tile was born.
By 1993, she had established an import and wholesale distribution company to service her showroom. Today, Artistic Tile has become one of the largest wholesale distributors of luxury tile and stone with nine showrooms nationwide and product distributed through more than 150 luxury tile and stone showrooms across the United States. In 2011 Artistic Tile acquired the esteemed Waterfall Bathroom Furniture line of sustainable bath vanities.
The firm's 110,000 square foot corporate headquarters in Secaucus, New Jersey is comprised of a state-of-the-art production facility, warehouse, training center, customer service center, design studio, and in November 2014 was expanded to include an additional 25,000 square foot slab gallery.
Nancy makes numerous product development trips throughout the world including Tunisia, Mexico, Italy, France, Spain, China, Vietnam, Turkey, India, and Israel. Nancy's designs have been featured in top shelter media outlets and consistently win “Best of” awards.
A graduate of Syracuse University, Nancy and her husband Larry have three sons and seven adored grandchildren. Nancy sits on the board of directors of the Jewish Home at Rockleigh and the JCC on the Palisades. She is an active supporter of the Jewish Federation of Northern NJ, Friends of the Israel Defense Forces (FIDF), The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), the Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Foundation, the Alzheimer’s Foundation, and the Neve Joseph Community Center in Haifa, Israel.
