Dallas– Daltile has expanded its Natural Quartzite collection, bringing four new countertop and extra-large slab surface options to the market: Tartarus; Moreno; Chacra; and Savoie.
The new products from Daltile provide customers with eye-catching natural stone surfacing solutions that boast exceptional durability and performance. “This category of stone has become increasingly popular in the countertop category due to its beautiful look and feel and the durability and hardiness of the material,” said Roy Viana, director of natural stone and slab for Dal-Tile Corporation. “Natural Quartzites offer the look and feel of marble with all of the benefits of granite’s durability and hardness. They are a great solution for areas where people want style but need high performing materials.”
Each of the new colors added to the Natural Quartzite collection are available in a polished finish. A bold, dark visual with subtle veining, Tartarus features linear movement that adds interest to a space. With a dark grey slate-like look, Moreno has prominent veining, creating a sense of movement. Chacra features bold and defined veining while Savoie is a contemporary greige color and also features a bit of a terrazzo agglomerated visual. All four colors can be used on a variety of surfaces including countertops, walls, backsplashes, vanities, shower walls and fireplace walls.
“All four of our new Natural Quartzite additions fit into the currently popular biophilia interior design trend,” said Laura Grilli, senior manager of product development for Dal-Tile Corporation. “The biophilia trend fosters connecting with nature. These four new products are ‘natural elements expressed in total freedom.’ In addition, Tartarus, Chacra and Moreno fit nicely into the Art Deco trend that is also hot right now. Art Deco is bringing back dark colors, the sophistication of dark, bolder, marble veins. These three new natural stone products offer a boldness, with elegance.”
Harder than granite, these countertops boast a long life free of flaws such as scratches or etching. Additionally, this material is highly resistant to heat and stains and is virtually maintenance-free, providing the ideal solution for high-traffic commercial spaces.
