Silestone, a global leader in the quartz surfaces segment, has further expanded its Eternal range of stone surfaces with five new and distinctive marble colours. The Company has recently become the centre of attention with the launch of its Calacatta-inspired quartz surfaces and launched Eternal Calacatta Gold as one of the five colours of their Eternal range in 2017. Following up on the popularity of this quartz surface, this new 2018 launch from the brand includes two different variations of the popular Calacatta marble- Silestone Calacatta Classic and Silestone Bianco Calacatta.
The materials are to be launched imminently for the United Kingdom market which will also include Silestone Eternal Marfil, Eternal Emperador and Desert Silver quartz surfaces.
In the meantime, allow us have a detailed look at these Calacatta-inspired surfaces from Silestone.
- Calacatta Gold
Launched in the year 2017, Calacatta Gold effectively captures the true essence of the Calacatta marble and adds a modern touch to it. The surface features thick veins in grey that are elegantly detailed with a golden tone on a bright white background. The idea behind Silestone Calacatta Gold was to pay tribute to the Calacatta marble which is not just popular in the modern times but was also held in high regards in the ancient times too. Especially the golden glints perfectly exude the richness of the past.
- Classic Calacatta
Silestone Classic Calacatta is one of the five new colours being launched by the company in 2018. Subtle and elegant, the surface effortlessly reinterprets Calacatta marble in the most realistic manner. The surface has a translucent appearance with grey veins throughout on top of the neutral base to resemble the real stone. Combined with the durability of quartz, Calacatta Classic is surely an exceptional choice for worktops and large kitchen islands. Classic Calacatta will be available in thicknesses 12mm, 20mm and 30mm and Jumbo slabs with dimensions 3250x1590mm which brings large seamless panels into interior decoration.
- Bianco Calacatta
If you are looking for a more dramatic appeal, Silestone Bianco Calacatta from the Eternal Collection 2018 can be a great choice. The notable white hue of the Calacatta marble is combined with electric, thick veins in grey for the right amount of contrast and style. If you want your kitchen countertop to be the focal point of the room, Bianco Calacatta can surely deliver the expected results. Bianco Calacatta quartz is available in both polished with beautiful sheen and Suede leathery finishes which will make it very popular across modern and traditional kitchens.
While all the three quartz surfaces are inspired by Calacatta marble, Silestone has ensured that the surfaces are significantly different from one another in their appearance. While the Calacatta Gold that was launched in 2017 has lighter grey and bluish veins with a slight golden shade, Classic Calacatta launched in 2018 has a more translucent appearance with uniform veins in dark grey.
While both Calacatta Gold and Classic Calacatta are perfect to add warmth to any environment, the recently released Bianco Calacatta has a more theatrical appearance. It has thicker electric grey veins on a luminous greyish backdrop which looks striking in any contemporary or traditional setting.
All three surfaces benefit from the new Silestone’s ‘N-Boost’ technology which makes them liquid repellent, being more resistant to stains and easier to clean than ever before, providing the surfaces with vivid colour. The surfaces are available in different slab sizes, thicknesses and with different edge formats to perfectly suit your requirements and help you create your dream home.
