Caesarstone’s Dark Collection embraces a contemporary trend in kitchens and bathrooms

Today, black is reconsidered as a modern classic, used as a stark accent or a powerful overall look. Dark slate and stone, along with oxidized metal and black lacquered wood, are among the materials being combined in interiors and hospitality spaces.

Leading the movement that is taking over the design world is Caesarstone’s new Dark Collection — a new line that embraces a contemporary trend in kitchens and bathrooms that has recently set a bold tone.

The collection features four new colours that present a range of captivating hues from the classic luxury of Empira Black to the matte infinity of Piatto Black via the evocative patinas of rusted Oxidian and weathered Black Tempal. The new Natural Finish with a slight grain enhances all colours in the collection.

“Caesarstone’s new Dark Collection represents our ongoing commitment to offer products that both set and reflect trends in interior design. With the added innovation of the collection’s natural finish, consumers can feel the texture of the surface, while enjoying the practicality of the minimal care and maintenance synonymous with all Caesarstone products, ” says Elizabeth Margles, VP of marketing at Caesarstone Canada.

Piatto Black is designed with versatility in mind: from graphic islands to backsplashes for a grander statement. As a countertop it is used freely in both kitchens and bathrooms, accompanying monochrome cabinetry and tiles. Contemporary accents in the new dark kitchen include brass chrome and brushed copper finishes while larger co-ordinating surfaces include marble, medium to dark woodgrains and industrial concrete floors. In hospitality, Piatto Black combines with oxidized alloys and other blackened finishes to create a new atmosphere in bars, lobbies and restaurants.

As part of the Metropolitan Collection, Oxidian celebrates the industrial aesthetic of patina and the tactile experience of touch. Tarnished with an oxidized russet effect that is distributed unevenly, just like real rust, Caesarstone offers a trend-savvy aged surface, yet maintains the practical durability and easy care associated with all its products.

At home in urban apartments and residences, Oxidian is equally suited to hospitality, bringing a metallic presence to restaurants, bars and hotels. There, Oxidian combines well with other industrial materials like concrete and lumber, ideally complemented by gunmetal or black cabinetry, and with brushed steel or copper hardware. The kitchen space is finished with dark wooden floors, ceramics and upholstery.

Empira Black transforms any room into a luxury experience, from residential kitchens and bathrooms to fashionable hotels and hospitality spaces. Whether as a contrasting island silhouette or used all-over for a stunning look, this memorable surface combines well with other high-end finishes, such as classic hardware, black lacquered cabinets or dark woods like walnut.

Black Tempal has soft mineral deposits that give rise to a delicate, light veil of warm whites across the slab, in contrast to the sturdy black charcoal base. Its textured, complex industrial composition reflects a captivating interpretation of industrial travertine, as its finish enhances the colour’s depth while capturing warm granular highlights consumers can caress. Oak, taupe-tinted tiles and russet upholstery create a warm, sophisticated statement when applied to hospitality areas –enhancing lobbies and creating a moody ambiance in bars. Brushed steel and gunmetal hardware complement the surface, while putty grey walls and grey-washed woods offer a captivating dichotomy.
