Our Story

She brings with her the experience of 2 and 3D computer drawings and looks forward to helping clients visualize their projects. Delanie has always valued working with people.

She brings with her several years experience in residential interior design and construction including a strong foundation in the principles and elements of design. She believes by listening to, and embracing our clients’ visions about their projects, allows her to creatively bring beauty, warmth and impact through tile design to their homes.


KATIE

In 2005 Katie joined the team at Old Port Specialty Tile. Her main role is in Sales & Layout Design. Having always been involved with the arts she enjoys using the medium of tile creatively while also focusing on its technical limitations. Collaborating with her clients and making what they envision a reality is Katie’s main goal.


LINDSAY

Lindsay discovered a passion for design at the tender age of nine, while putting together her Barbie’s dream house. Never wavering from her need to be creative, Lindsay attended one of the country’s premier art schools: Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York. She graduated in 2005 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Interior Design. After working at Residential and Commercial Design Firms in New York and Maine, Lindsay landed in Portland and discovered the perfect blend of her small Maine hometown and the big city she grew to love. Lindsay joined the team at Old Port Specialty Tile in early 2011. As a “Jill of all trades” on any given day, you could find her writing estimates, researching products and installation methods, guiding customers through the showroom, drawing and designing tile layouts, or any number of other tasks; anything to be helpful! When she’s not rifling through tile displays in the Old Port you might find Lindsay buried in a good book, working on some craft project or belting out show tunes.


THERESA

Theresa joined the then two-man staff of Old Port Specialty Tile Co. back in 2003. At the time she was needed for general office duties and greeting of clients. As Office Assistant she learned quickly that this was much more than a tile store. She loves to talk with the clients and get to know who they are, and not just what their tiling needs may be. She forged many relationships with repeat clientele and helped strengthen bonds with vendors to create open communication with on going jobs. The introduction of a team atmosphere has allowed the store to grow and strengthen its bond with each and every client. Theresa is now co-manager with Katie. She still comes to the floor to welcome and assist clients as well as bridges a gap between Old Port and its sister store Capozza Tile and Floor Covering Center. When you have billing inquiries she is the one to call on.
