Artistic Surfaces was founded in 1989 by Harvey Namm after 25 years of experience as a floor contractor, the company became well-known contractors specializing in stores like Macy's, Bloomingdales, Burdines, and Saks 5th Avenue. Luxury hotels, Art Galleries, Airport Terminals, Performing Arts Centers, and Sporting Arenas were added as the years passed.
In the winter of 2009, Artistic Surfaces launched a new division for decorative concrete. The new division will capitalize on the emerging demand for interior and exterior decorative concrete flooring. The new division marked the company's entry as the area's most experienced design applicators for decorative concrete concepts. Heading the new division is Sam Godbey, a thirty year industry veteran who has relocated to South Florida from the mid west with some of the craftsmen responsible for the majority of concrete concepts at the Wynn, Bellagio, and Caesar's Place resorts in Las Vegas.
We are expanding our offerings to meet the demand of innovative, environmentally friendly flooring concepts."
- said Harvey Namm,
"Decorative concrete processes are extremely popular in California, which is a leader in design innovation, and relatively unknown in Florida and the eastern portion of the United Stated. Our company has ambitious lans to bring the eco-conscious technique to the forefront of our exceptional flooring repertoire."
