    For workshop/apd, Savoy tiles hit the right notes: good looks and affordability. They “are reasonably priced and can go both modern and traditional in a design,” Kotchen says. The tiles are made from 21 percent pre-consumer recycled content, and are priced from $10.98 per square foot. Ann Sacks, 800.278.8453; www.annsacks.com.
