CaesarStone, a quartz surface manufacturer, recently held a “day of pampering” to promote its new Deep Ocean color. Attendees were treated to manicures and hand massages, breakfast appetizers and cocktails. Held at the Snaidero USA building in New York City, the event was hosted by stars of the hit Bravo design show “9 by Design,” Bob and Cortney Novogratz.

Deep Ocean is part of CaesarStone’s Impression collection. Its color reflects the name for which it bears, featuring a combination of shades in blue and green. Available in a polished finish, it comes in a ¾- or 1 ¼-inch thickness.

CaesarStone was also recently the exclusive surface for House Beautiful’s “Kitchen of the Year” - making it the second year in a row. This event showcases the best in kitchen design, cooking, entertaining and contemporary lifestyle. The 1,000-square-foot, fully functioning kitchen was available to tour in New York’s Rockefeller Plaza from July 19 to 23, 2010. This year, Jeff Lewis of Bravo’s hit series “Flipping Out” designed the chef’s dream space. 

The annual “Kitchen of the Year” installation celebrates outstanding American design and decor. Enclosed in a glass conservatory on Rockefeller Plaza where the Christmas tree sits each holiday season, the “Kitchen of the Year” allows visitors to experience a visionary take on today’s American kitchen. Previous installations have celebrated the styles of Ina Garten (the Barefoot Contessa) and kitchen designer Christopher Peacock, and have featured CaesarStone countertops.  

In addition to being showcased in his design for “Kitchen of the Year,” CaesarStone has been chosen by Lewis as the exclusive quartz surface used in his design projects.

“Jeff Lewis is a true professional,” said Mitch Sebolsky, Marketing Manager for CaesarStone. “His proven track record in home décor and renovation lends perfectly to his keen eye for contemporary design and style. CaesarStone is honored to be his chosen surface and looks forward to many successful projects to come.”
