DALLAS – September 4, 2019 – Daltile is pleased to launch four new designs into its ONE Quartz Surfaces Nature Series assortment. This quartz slab series offers beautiful nature-inspired stone designs for countertops and walls, while providing the low-maintenance benefits and durability for which Daltile’s ONE Quartz Surfaces are known. The latest unveiling features the ultimate in fashion-based designs.
“Quartz continues to be one of the hottest countertop choices for homeowners,” said Roy Viana, director of natural stone and slab for Dal-Tile Corporation, parent company of the Daltile brand. “With quartz, consumers get the beauty of Natural Stone in a strong, durable, hygienic product that requires little-to-no maintenance and stands up to the demanding conditions of daily life.”
“Daltile’s new Nature Series line extensions offer the height of luxurious fashion-forward style and feature sophisticated design, movement, color, veining, and nuanced shading for highly realistic marble looks in today’s hottest colors,” added Viana. “Two of our new products offer ‘classic’ marble designs, while the other two provide unique ‘contemporary’ marble looks.”
“People are still in love with classic, white marbles,” said Viana. “Our new Jasmine White is a smooth marble design, inspired by classic white Carrara Gioia Italian Marble. Carrara Gioia is known for its cool white background and thinner, shorter veins. Jasmine White quartz slabs provide the beauty and elegance of classic marble in a durable, low-maintenance material, giving designers and homeowners the ability to feature the beauty of white marble in areas that would not be conducive to using real marble.”
“The design of our new Kodiak is a little softer than Jasmine White,” said Viana. “Kodiak offers a warmer white background with soft veins that are not as distinctive. This design works well for classic traditional as well as contemporary settings. Many consumers and designers are moving to what I call ‘modern contemporary’, mixing classic marble within spaces that overall feature a contemporary aesthetic. Kodiak works well in this setting, adding a splash of a classic touch.”
Alpine Winter & Aspen Grey – “Contemporary” Marble Looks
“Both of these new quartz slabs feature designs that are ‘contemporary take-offs’ of classic marbles,” said Viana. “Both designs are within the marble family as far as movement goes, but the technology that produces quartz allows us to mix in a lot of different colors and shades; do some tone-on-tone; and mix pigments and aggregates to create really unique marble looks that you don’t usually find in Mother Nature.”
“Alpine Winter presents a larger crystal grain marble visual while Aspen Grey emulates a more fine-grained marble with movement and very fine crystals,” Viana added.
