Quartz continues its takeover of all things countertop. It offers strength and durability and requires much less maintenance than its natural stone counterparts. But what if you really love the look of marble or granite? Increasingly, quartz manufacturers are offering the look of natural stone counters minus the stone.
Wilsonart is one such manufacturer. Their most recent line of nature-inspired quartz surfacing more closely resembles natural stone.
“These new designs capture the same natural beauty of granite and marble but with a refined, artistic flawlessness that works equally well in both residential and commercial environments.”
Paul Mikulencak, senior product designer at Wilsonart
The ten new designs tap into the colour trends of warm and cool whites, greys, and neutrals, but also take advantage of the resurgence of classic black stone.
Dinant is a complex black and grey background with white veining throughout the slab.
Coastal features a mix of warm and cool greys creating a complex canvas backdrop for the dark grey branching.
Haldi is a semi-translucent deep grey pattern with warm gold veining.
SoHo is a medium soft grey concrete look.
Marble Falls is a warm white and grey mottled background with soft, linear veining down the length of the slab.
North Cascades is a warm grey, natural branching vein structure that travels through a mottled grey and white background.
Salar features a bright white background with small clusters of charcoal and deep warm grey veining that naturally fades in and out across the slab.
Desert Wind is a neutral, warm colour palette with deep veins and subtle pale taupe resin pools.
Rain Shadow incorporates a cool grey mottled background with soft white veining throughout the slab.
Ascent is a large-scale, chunky marble look that mixes white, charcoal and deep warm greys to encapsulate the elegance of warm white and grey veining.
