MSI Presents Latest Quartz Long-Vein Marble Looks

Posted on 16 November 2021 by cradmin

MSI introduced the latest in long-vein marble looks with its Calacatta Collection. This selection of long-vein marble looks includes everything from thick to thin and colors ranging from icy white to midnight black.

A sampling of the collection includes the following designs:

Calacatta Arno Quartz – a beautiful marble-look Calacatta quartz that features a warm white backdrop enhanced by thin gray veins highlighted with lovely gold accents. Unlike natural marble that succumbs to water spots and stains, the white coloring on this engineered surface will stay bright thanks to the nonporous surface.

Calacatta Miraggio Gold Quartz – a crisp white background and elegant golden brown veining. This stunning quartz features MSI’s exclusive Lumaluxe formulation, enhancing how light interacts with the marble-like surface for genuinely eye-catching results. Calacatta Miraggio Gold is available in 2cm and 3cm slabs.

Calacatta Valentin Quartz – a warm white two-toned marble look background with subtle gold veins and a polished finish. Available in 2cm and 3cm slabs for design and installation flexibility.

Calacatta Versailles Quartz – a unique two-toned background in cool gray and white is unlike any quartz in the market. Calacatta Versailles resembles the look of natural stone but has the ease of maintenance and durability of quartz. The quartz is available in 2cm and 3cm slabs.

  • Neutral Cement (matte finish) – Industrial in inspiration, warm and comfortable in execution, the light beige color lifts the visual weight and quiets the patterning within.

Leathered – Part of the growing leathered collection, these leathered aesthetics stand on their own or can be coordinated with their glossy counterparts.

  • Ashen Gray Leathered (leathered finish) – A leathered version of a top-selling polished color with subtle veining on a light gray background.
  • Stratus Leathered (leathered finish) – A leathered version of a top-selling polished color with quiet touches of gray and beige on a cream background.

Dark – Available in matte and polished finishes, these aesthetics are designed to lift black from a classic color to an extraordinary presence.

  • Ironstone (matte finish) – Dark, warm gray with fine white veins, which invokes subtle strength.
  • Night Soapstone (matte finish) – Threadlike white veins on a black background, for those looking for a soapstone look with the durability of Corian Quartz.
  • Black Goldstone (polished finish) – Fine gold-colored veining on a deep black background, a surface that gleams with presence.
  • Tahitian Sand (polished finish) – A confident and strong polished monochromatic surface with ultra-fine grains.

Alabaster Terrazzo (polished finish) – Mid-century inspired with unique, light-catching translucent quartz crystals, the distinct, premium Terrazzo aesthetic adds style and whimsy to any design space.

Beige Royale (polished finish) – Warm subtle patterning, muted veins and particles create a surface that embraces multiple styles and design possibilities.

The company states that Corian Quartz is made with high-quality quartz crystals and is a durable, stain resistant, high-performance surface that survives the impact of daily wear and tear while retaining its good looks. Offering design flexibility in a wide range of vibrant colors, Corian Quartz is suitable for countertops, bars, backsplashes and other applications.

Caesarstone Launches Online Estimator/Project Management Tool: Caesarstone Connect

Posted on 29 September 2021 by cradmin

Caesarstone, a developer and manufacturer of engineered quartz surfaces, recently launched its new Caesarstone Connect™ platform. The company stated that this first-of-its-kind integrated online estimator and project management tool immediately delivers a detailed per square foot price quote (that includes material, fabrication and installation costs) and seamlessly connects projects to certified Caesarstone fabricators. The process can take just minutes and is available for any Caesarstone application including countertops, backsplashes, bathroom vanities and more, providing a consumer with transparent pricing within a detailed quote. It also empowers retailers and designers to provide customers with immediate, on-the-spot pricing for custom countertops.

According to the company Caesarstone Connect is a revolutionary way to help a consumer customize and purchase a fully installed Caesarstone surface, from inspiration to installation. Retailers simply input measurements and select from any of Caesarstone’s colors, edge details and other ancillary items to create a quote. Once the quote is accepted by the customer and converted to an order, it is sent directly to a certified Caesarstone fabrication partner who confirms measurements, fabricates and installs the Caesarstone surface.

The Caesarstone Connect online platform also manages the project from start to finish, so retailers can know the status of the project at any given point. Homeowners also receive frequent updates from the platform throughout the process. Workmanship is guaranteed via the Caesarstone certified fabricator network, and a dedicated team of specialists is always available to answer questions.

Caesarstone Connect has already launched in several U.S. market areas and is scheduled to be more widely available by fourth quarter 2021.
