Wilsonart, manufacturer of engineered surfaces, introduced new quartz and solid surface designs that capture the natural beauty of granite and marble.
The new hard surface designs tap into the color trends of whites, greys and neutrals but also takes advantage of the resurgence of black stone. Several of the new quartz “inspired-by-nature” veining patterns were created through robotic technology.
For 2018, the company has 10 new quartz and seven new solid surface introductions.
The quartz offerings include Marble Falls, which has warm white and grey mottled background with linear veining down the length of the slab; Rain Shadow, which incorporates a grey mottled background with white veining throughout the slab.; North Cascades, which has grey, natural branching vein structure that travels through a mottled grey-and-white background; and Coastal, which features a mix of greys creating a canvas backdrop for the dark grey branching veins.
Meanwhile, the solid surface includes Titanium Grey, a mid-value solid grey; Angel Falls, which has a linear movement design that uses neutral tones and clear chips to create a structure that looks similar to travertine; Grey Lace, which uses light and dark shades of grey in a linear design woven with small, clear particulate to give it a natural stone feel; and Saharan Night, which has dark brown and black design set in a linear structure resembling that of woodgrain.
Wilsonart solid surface is resistant to fade, heat, mold, mildew and most stains. It holds UL GreenGuard Gold Certification for low-chemical emissions into indoor air during product usage, and is NSF-compliant for food preparation.
