For more than four decades flamboyant designer Cohn, who died in 1984 aged 81, stitched his name into country and western clothing history. "You'd come into the shop and my grandfather would be walking around playing the mandolin, singing songs," Nudie recalls.

Minimizing tile colors doesn't minimize options, says Kevin McDaniel, director of product design and development for The Tile Shop in Minneapolis. Larry Bushner, owner of Masterpiece Tile & Grout in Arlington, Texas, has noticed more homeowners requesting porcelain tile. Porcelain faces no shortage of style either, Martinez says.

"Trump 2016," the Darling children chirped in unison. Some believe that outreach efforts like the Diversity Showcase are one of the best tools the industry has to address the issue. "There needs to be change," Maline said.

Discussion of the boycott has taken over industry functions all over Los Angeles. Some said the problem begins in casting departments.
