Ok, I know this might sound a little silly, but I get pretty excited when leading interiors brands release their newest products!
And one such brand, Caesarstone, has just launched the first of its new colours for 2019, so no surprises, I had to take a look!
The reveal of the Caesarstone‘s new colours Primordia and Empira White highlights the shift in interiors from the once sleek and shiny to raw, earthy textures, that embrace the organic imperfections of nature. And I’m a fan!
For one, concrete, which was once solely used in industrial settings, has become a hot favourite for kitchen benches, loved for its raw beauty that delivers a rare authenticity to the space.
In the words of global trends forecaster, Li Edelkoort,
The characteristics of concrete are an antidote to the alienation and fatigue people are experiencing from too much technology.
This is where Caesarstone’s Primordia comes in. Part of the Metropolitan collection, it is an inspired rough concrete finish, equally at home in the kitchen or bathroom.
The light grey base features soft mineral markings in off-whites and greys combined with veins of deeper grey and brown that reflect the oxidised rusts found in the natural environment.
Traces of faint yellow and washed greens add to the textural quality of Primordia and create a sense of movement to the quartz surface.
Second is Empira White, which can you believe, has taken Caesarstone a DECADE to perfect?! Informed by authentic white marble, Empira White features the purest of white bases with fine black veins and underlying shadowy alluvial layers that together add depth to the polished quartz surface. The result is an organic interplay between light and dark. Stunning!
Li Edelkoort sums up the new direction in kitchen aesthetics:
Concrete will continue to reign and black and white will continue to jostle for position.Brass will make a big difference in the kitchen – everything becomes more sophisticated when combined with different metals.
The only question is which would you choose?! Let me know in a comment below!
