Vadara Unveils New Colors for 2021

Posted on 20 January 2021 by cradmin

Vadara Quartz Surfaces, a manufacturer of premium quartz surfaces, has added to its lineup six new fashion-forward color options. The new hues will make their debut at the 2021 Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS Virtual) in February.

Inspired by the classic colors found in marble and quartzite, Vadara’s newest color options include the following:

  • Bella Dolce – a luminous bright white background with delicate brown and grey veining
  • Calacatta Fresco – a dimensional off-white and grey background with dynamic grey veining
  • Calacatta Oro – a dimensional off-white and grey background with dynamic brown and grey veining
  • Cascada Perla – a dimensional off-white and grey background with dynamic grey and white veining
  • Solano Bella – a dimensional off-white and grey background with delicate grey veining
  • Varenna (pictured above) – a luminous white background with delicate grey veining

According to the company, Vadara’s directional veined products are virtually indistinguishable from natural stone, while offering the strength, durability, resistance to staining and etching and minimal maintenance requirements for which quartz is known. A nonporous construction also provides antimicrobial properties, making quartz surfaces healthier and more hygienic than many other surface options.

Cambria Collaborates With Gensler to Launch Coordinates Collection

Posted on 25 August 2020 by cradmin3

Cambria, an American-made, family-owned producer of natural quartz surfaces, along with integrated architecture, design, planning and consulting firm Gensler launched The Coordinates Collection by Cambria this summer.

The collection consists of 14 high-performing quartz designs suitable for both commercial and residential applications. The new colors were designed to coordinate effortlessly together and were created around the Natural Color System (NCS), a scientifically based color system that allows for accurate cross-industrial color communication for designers, manufacturers, retailers and customers. This color system is a global standard for definition, quality assurance and communication of color.

The result of a two-year design, research and development process, the designs were created to work together or on their own, and coordinate in many different ways including tone and texture. The tones match and coordinate, since they are all rooted in the NCS.

The collection draws from six different NCS colors which represent two shades of white; three shades of light, medium, and dark charcoal gray; and one shade of black. The NCS is used widely by specifiers and the A&D community, enabling the colors to coordinate with other specified building materials. This makes it easy to work The Coordinates Collection into design projects. The collection textures range from smooth and rugged concrete looks, to terrazzo-inspired designs, to designs with organic veining.

All designs will be available in Cambria’s Matte finish, which features a smooth, silky touch and no reflectivity, as well as in Cambria’s high-gloss finish. Cambria Matte offers an alternative finish style. The Coordinates Collection will be available in a variety of edge profiles in 1 cm., 2 cm., and 3 cm. thicknesses and jumbo slabs (132-in. x 65.5-in.). All designs will also be available as wall and floor tiles.

Cambria worked hand in hand with the Gensler team to create a collection just as beautiful as it is functional with designs that fit seamlessly into heavily trafficked environments. The products are 100 percent nonabsorbent to prohibit liquid and bacteria from penetrating the surface. The material is scratch- and stain-resistant, maintenance free from sealing or reconditioning, and backed by a transferable Full Lifetime Warranty.

Caesarstone Unveils Dark New Colors

Posted on 11 February 2020 by cradmin

At KBIS 2020 Caesarstone introduced four new dark shade surfaces to add to its collections.

Oxidian and Black Tempal join the popular industrial-inspired Metropolitan Collection while Empira Black joins the Supernatural Collection. Additionally, Piatto Black is now part of the Classico Collection. These surfaces are equally suited to urban residences as well as hospitality installations where they will bring a sophisticated presence to restaurants, bars and hotels.

Oxidian is an inky black base is veiled by a rust-like effect that captures the movement and texture of a handsomely oxidized surface. The elegantly dramatic design ushers in a metallic presence and welcomes the deep emotion found in shadowy blacks.

Black Tempal is a complex composition of dark grey mineral-like layers that expand across a black charcoal base capturing the attributes of natural stones like travertine and slate. Inspired by the dark sky and ocean tides at night.

Piatto Black is the ultimate dark shade with a fine granular appearance that is complemented by a textured finish, enhancing a deeper, more intimate black.

Empira Black is a rich black base beautified by fine natural white veins, bringing a depth to the surface while creating an interplay between color and movement.

These elegant dark colors each come in the new Natural finish – a textured finish that conjures up the tactile feel of stone, adding warmth to the grain so it’s pleasing to the touch. With a satin sheen that gently reflects light, this finish captivates the viewer and enhances the depth of a color, especially darker shades. Empira Black will also be available in Polished finish.

Neolith Presents New Colors for 2019

Posted on 05 November 2018 by cradmin

Neolith by TheSize has announced four new models that will be included in the 2019 collection.

New York – New York responds to a revival of interest in beton and concrete for interior applications, particularly worktops. With distinctive grey tones it offers an on-trend, urban style suitable for all surfacing applications. Incorporating a fully body edge is highly realistic, and a surface which blends matte and shine particles to create a pleasing visual effect. Available in 3, 6, 12 and 20 mm. Silk Finish

Mont Blanc is a homage to White Quartzite, one of the most popular stone patterns currently on the market. It has a neutral tone, combining a creamy white background with subtle veining in deep black, oxide and ochre hues. Using a special technique, Neolith was able to create an inward relief exactly where the veins are, delivering an original texture which is pleasing to the touch and evokes the soaring beauty of the alpine landscape. Available in 6 and 12 mm. Silk Finish

Sofia Iron – The semi-polished finish of this stone creates an irregular and burnished effect that gives the surface a more worn look and touch. The surface will be presented with two finishes, “Copper” and “Moss”.  Available in 6, 12 and 20 mm. Shine Silk Finish


Mar del Plata – Inspired by the exotic Dark Pearl granite, a Brazilian stone from TheSize’s Granith collection, this rippled slab incorporates wavy white quartz stripes on a grey backdrop. With a slated stone relief, the slab resembles the fluidity of flowing water. The whiter and lighter grey striations are produced with a special technique which gives texture to the veining. Flecks of shine particle throughout the stone also create a beautiful nacre effect. Available in 6 and 12 mm. Slate Finish
