Elegant Mosaics founders Sam & David Cohen have been distributing natural stone for over ten years. Founding Rock Bottom Tile & Stone in 2008, David Cohen was as one of the first nationwide and online suppliers of natural stone tile and paver materials.

On Friday, February 13th, 2014 Sam & David experienced a life changing moment when David went into cardiac arrest in their Portland, Oregon Rock Bottom Tile & Stone office. Jumping into action, Sam called 911 while also administering CPR. Awaiting the EMT’s, Sam wondered if he had just spent the last moments with his older brother. David spent 27 minutes without a pulse before fighting back to life. First responders credit David’s incredible will and Sam’s immediate actions for David’s miraculous survival against all odds – further bonding the brothers who have dedicated their lives to supporting each other and working together.

Immensely grateful for every day that they get to spend together and for every minute Sam’s children get to spend with their Uncle Dave, the Cohen Brothers continue to embody their dedicated passion within the design community and with every job they create.
