Five design Trends Inspiring What’s New and Next in Natural Stone Surfaces
While white and gray are eternal classics, a warmer mix of these hues has us lightening up. Think winter whites paired with creamy beige hues for a mix that’s decidedly cool, calm, and collected. Cambria’s Marble Collection offers neutrals with intriguing marble movement while the Desert Collection offers monochromatic taupes, creams, and olives that complement and play well with a neutral color palette.

Modern with Matte
Modern, marvelous no-sheen matte finishes have made a splash from luxury cars and lipstick to paint, appliances, and bathroom fixtures. And now, Cambria offers a sleek matte option with the revolutionary Cambria Matte surface finish. Choose between shiny or matte with your countertops for a look that’s entirely unique. Or mix and match the two finishes for a custom look – perhaps matte finish along the perimeter and high gloss on the island to add texture and interest.
Return to Color
Rich, moody hues such as indigo, emerald green, and deep red are making a bold statement that’s anything but timid. Embrace these high-octane colors with dark cabinets and luxe countertops to create a timeless opulence that’s fun and fearless. With rich, jewel toned paint colors being more predominant in homes, we are seeing darker cabinets paired with lighter countertops but not necessarily in just white or gray.

Look to nature for inspiration, from rich natural woods and botanicals inspired by lush greenery and nature. Pairing natural elements with modern fixtures and minimalist elements create a refreshing Scandinavian-inspired space. Welcome this timeless elegance home, and bring the great outdoors within.
Beyond the Kitchen
Natural stone is not just for countertop surfaces. Tailor-made pieces using durable elements bring a level of customization and uniqueness to your space. Custom Cambria backsplashes, flooring, furniture, fireplace mantels and headboards offer the look of classic furnishings with the added benefits of durability and maintenance-free convenience.
