Agate, Amethyst, Quartz, Aragonite….. semi-precious stones are creating their own kind of glamour in luxury kitchens and bathrooms with consumers taking a giant step forward in the form of bold, brave finishes that both excite and indulge.
Semi-precious stones are being used for walls, vanities and island benches while vibrantly patterned tiles are defining the floor of the 2020s. Smart tapware – often voice-activated – is an indulgent accessory in bronze, gold and titanium while integrated ambient lighting and lush foliage soften the mood.
Caesarstone reports a surge in interest in its Concetto range of 10 semi-precious stone surfaces – think White Quartz, Brown Agate, Amethyst and Aragonite, Tigers Eye and even Petrified Wood – to create charismatic bathing areas and, when backlit, magical vanities.
This luxury stone is also setting the ‘benchmark’ in statement kitchens, with Caesarstone’s White Quartz starring in Mitch and Mark’s kitchen in last year’s series (2019) of the popular television programme The Block.
This rise in the luxury glamour trend can be attributed, in part, to an overload of the pared-back Scandi style – muted, neutral hues and clean lines – that has been at the forefront of interiors styles for a number of years.
Concetto surfaces are handmade from individually cut and bound high quality semi-precious stones – they can be used as bench tops, splashbacks, wall panelling and furniture. Each surface is absolutely unique – as well as a timeless work of art. Many of them can also be backlit for added drama. Like other Caesarstone surfaces, Concetto is both heat and scratch-resistant, easy to clean and will never require sealing.
Caesarstone is committed to the highest safety and environmental standards and carries the ISO 14001 international standard for environmental management and performance.
