Never and allways, two things that are seldom true, there are situations that in limited areas it wont cause problems if you grout to the edge but it is not recommended to grout the whole perimeter. common sense applies,if you grout one area tight then you have to be dillegent about leaving the other areas clear of grout or other obstrustions.

So, do you ever grout along the edge using Avaire tile? I cannot find this explained in the literature.

You wont want to grout the edge. But there are many color match caulk options available. Any tile installation (Avaire or traditional tile) should have a perimeter gap to allow movement of the structure.

A tile floor installation should NEVER be grouted at the walls. Tile floors require room for expansion.

In your case the tiles should be cut neatly at the walls leaving a gap of 1/8" to 3/16" and then "caulked" with a grout-matching caulk. Matching caulks (within reason) are available to match most any color grout available.

Grouting the edge

When I finish the Avaire floor installation can or should I grout around the edge, next to the wall. I have 4" ceramic tile on the wall so I can't put a quarter round down.
