Daltile Launches Beautiful Nature-Inspired ONE Quartz Surfaces Line Extensions

New quartz slabs offer stunning visuals in an array of white marble looks, earth-inspired colors, and gorgeous contemporary stone designs

Daltile is pleased to launch four new designs into its ONE Quartz Surfaces Nature Series assortment.  This quartz slab series offers beautiful nature-inspired stone designs for countertops and walls, while providing the low-maintenance benefits and durability for which Daltile’s ONE Quartz Surfaces are known.  The latest unveiling features the ultimate in fashion-based designs.

“Quartz continues to be one of the hottest countertop choices for homeowners,” said Roy Viana, director of natural stone and slab for Dal-Tile Corporation, parent company of the Daltile brand.  “With quartz, consumers get the beauty of Natural Stone in a strong, durable, hygienic product that requires little-to-no maintenance and stands up to the demanding conditions of daily life.”

“Daltile’s new Nature Series line extensions offer the height of luxurious fashion-forward style and feature sophisticated design, movement, color, veining, and nuanced shading for highly realistic marble looks in today’s hottest colors,” added Viana.  “Two of our new products offer ‘classic’ marble designs, while the other two provide unique ‘contemporary’ marble looks.”

Daltile Jasmine White

Jasmine White & Kodiak – “Classic” Marble Designs

Jasmine White

“People are still in love with classic, white marbles,” said Viana.  “Our new Jasmine White is a smooth marble design, inspired by classic white Carrara Gioia Italian Marble.  Carrara Gioia is known for its cool white background and thinner, shorter veins.  Jasmine White quartz slabs provide the beauty and elegance of classic marble in a durable, low-maintenance material, giving designers and homeowners the ability to feature the beauty of white marble in areas that would not be conducive to using real marble.”


Daltile Kodiak

“The design of our new Kodiak is a little softer than Jasmine White,” said Viana.  “Kodiak offers a warmer white background with soft veins that are not as distinctive.  This design works well for classic traditional as well as contemporary settings.  Many consumers and designers are moving to what I call ‘modern contemporary’, mixing classic marble within spaces that overall feature a contemporary aesthetic.  Kodiak works well in this setting, adding a splash of a classic touch.” 

Alpine Winter & Aspen Grey – “Contemporary” Marble Looks

Daltile Alpine WInter

“Both of these new quartz slabs feature designs that are ‘contemporary take-offs’ of classic marbles,” said Viana. “Both designs are within the marble family as far as movement goes, but the technology that produces quartz allows us to mix in a lot of different colors and shades; do some tone-on-tone; and mix pigments and aggregates to create really unique marble looks that you don’t usually find in Mother Nature.”

“Alpine Winter presents a larger crystal grain marble visual while Aspen Grey emulates a more fine-grained marble with movement and very fine crystals,” Viana added.

LG Hausys Introducing New Colors to Viatera® Collections

Six Dramatic Colors Join the Masterpiece and Musica Collections

LG Hausys’s Viatera quartz surface is introducing six new colors to its Masterpiece and Musica collections.  Ranging from light and airy to dark and dramatic, the colors offer a broader range of elegant and sophisticated options to spark inspiration for kitchen and bath design projects.  At the forefront of design, the new colors are ideal surfacing solutions for kitchen countertops and backsplashes, as well as bathroom vanities.  

Joining Viatera’s Masterpiece Collection are Mica and Umbra. Mica evokes the organic radiance and complex layers of a rare geological gem. Its highly reflective, crystalline surface displays vivid white streaks bolting across an understated pale sea, accented with touches of light shadow.  Its dimensional finish creates a look of an alluring mineral.  Umbra’s surface provides the illusion of natural movement inherent to the awe-inspiring phenomenon of an eclipse.  The sensation of light veiled in shadow is evoked by dark, linear veining, which lends to the visual interest of this surface as it blends with a muted gray background, bringing an air of tranquility to any space. 

Joining Viatera’s Musica Collection are Dolce, Melody, Tenor and Basso.  Dolce’s smooth surface provides the perfect foundation for creamy threads that gently play across a luminous backdrop and a pallet of dazzling hues.   Melody is a perfect combination of pitch and rhythm, as muted dark beige capillaries rise and fall across a refined cream-hued canvas, creating a sumptuous and soothing aesthetic.  Tenor features an agile surface and vibrant threads that ring out across a cool taupe surface, creating a melodious play of light and dark that come together in perfect unison.  Basso, rich and resonant, brings deep, velvety hues that lend an air of elegance and luxury to any room. Its warm, soothing surface evokes the sensation of sailing through a midnight, star-studded sky. 


“These new Viatera colors are not only on the cutting edge of design, but are classic and will remain beautiful and in style for years to come,” said LG Hausys America Marketing Manager Carol Lee.  “Homebuilding and design professionals will find myriad ways to use these colors to take their homeowners’ visions to new heights.  It gives them the freedom to create a space that truly reflects the beauty and wonder of life.”

Like all Viatera colors, each new color is comprised of 93 percent quartz, making it a superior surfacing option comparable to stone.  The colors come in a Jumbo II size slab of 63” x 130,” which can accommodate larger layouts, including kitchen islands with fewer seams.  Each format is available in 2cm and 3cm thickness.  

Viatera, defined by its classic and timeless aesthetic, is comprised of four different collections, each inspired by and celebrating the earth’s natural splendor.
