Caesarstone is my favorite quartz composite, bar none. They have the most interesting palette and the most adventurous selection of surface finishes. Unlike the rest of the quartz composite brands out there, Caesarstone speaks the language of design and architecture. They practically challenge us to find unique uses for their surfaces and their website and product galleries are a great source of inspiration. Caesarstone practically begs to be turned into furniture or wall sheathing or shower stalls or even floors. It's amazingly useful and versatile stuff.
A year or so ago, I started to see patterned surfaces made from Caesarstone and I wrote a post about it last October. My first exchange with Ann Porter from KitchAnnStyle came about as a result of these patterned surfaces. Back then, people were sandblasting Caesarstone to get the textures I was seeing and I was smitten completely.
Well, Caesarstone was paying attention because at KBIS last year, they previewed a new collection called Motivo, and Motivo has two available embossed finishes.
Unlike the sandblasing that had been done to completed slabs, these embossed patterns are produced by Caesarstone and are guaranteed for life. Kudos to Caesarstone for listening and wow are these new patterns beautiful or what?
For now there are two patterns in the Motivo collection. Knowing Caesarstone though, this is just the start of something. But in the meantime, imagine a shower in crocodile. Cool!
