TEMPLE, TX -- Technology may be everywhere, but consumers today are still looking for ways to bring nature into their everyday lives. From bringing plants indoors to add color, visual texture and cleaner air to choosing accessories and paint colors with natural themes, nature is top of our list for making our environments comfortable, calm and aesthetically pleasing. Wilsonart, the leading manufacturer of engineered surfaces, introduces new Quartz and Solid Surface designs that blend nature’s beauty and look stunning in both home and commercial settings. 

“Nature was the inspiration behind the color palette in Wilsonart’s new Quartz and Solid Surface offering,” said Paul Mikulencak, senior product designer, Wilsonart. “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. They address the growing desire for corporate workplaces to incorporate a casual, nature-inspired, home-like design in commercial applications. We call this Nature Blending.” 

The new hard surface designs tap into the color trends of warm and cool whites, grays and neutrals but also takes advantage of the resurgence of classic black stone. Several of the new Quartz “inspired-by-nature” veining patterns were created through robotic technology, making them unique in the marketplace. The 2018 Quartz and Solid Surface designs celebrate natural materials with 10 new Quartz and seven new Solid Surface introductions.
