About Distinctive Tile & Stone

About Olympia/Lacey’s Tile and Stone Shop


Matthew Koch has been in the tile and stone industry for 25 years.  He originally opened Distinctive Tile & Stone in Seattle in 1998 after discovering that stonework was the perfect outlet for his design experience and passion.  Matt holds his Masters in International Market Development and has worked with Hugo Boss, Calvin Klein, Porsche, Mercedes Benz, and Calwer Decken-und Tuchfabriken, one of the worlds oldest textile companies.  As well as operating Distinctive Tile & Stone, Matt is currently working with Ceramicas Calaf s/a, a Spanish based tile manufacturer in the development of North America and Asian markets.

Distinctive Tile & Stone is now located in Lacey, Washington and is a design-based company that works closely with homeowners helping them bring their imagined projects to life.  While many of the projects that Distinctive Tile & Stone work on could be described as “rich,” the company’s simple philosophy has always been to provide the best quality products at the best possible price.  Speaking of price, don’t forget to check out our specials page for all of the products on sale now!  You also won’t want to miss Distinctive Tile & Stone’s unique specialty: shower pans.

Visit Matt and the rest of his team at Distinctive Tile & Stone’s beautiful showroom and tell them all about the projects you have in mind that involve tile, stone, marble, granite, etc.  They can help you with the complete process: design, fabrication, delivery, and installation.
