Silestone brings an exclusive rich textured finish to quartz surfacing
HOUSTON (May 10) – Cosentino introduces a new series of textured luxurious natural quartz−Silestone® Leather™ with Microban.® This new product offers an exclusive visual and sensory experience in natural stone and the added bonus of a countertop that is easier to clean, and stays cleaner in between cleanings.
Silestone Leather with Microban is the first and only countertop in the world with built-in anti microbial product protection that continuously fights the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew.
“Cosentino is staying ahead of the matte finish design trend by pioneering a leather texture, and also creating a new breed of countertops by offering Silestone as the only surface that provides continuous cleaning action,” says Monica Canales, Marketing Director, Cosentino USA. “Silestone Leather with Microban truly is a win-win product that not only takes cleanliness to the next level, but brings a new texture and warmth to any room.”
“While high gloss surfaces continue to be popular, there has been a shift toward warmer, earthier textures and surfaces as people are looking for design alternatives,” Alexis Barnes, Managing Editor, K+BB Magazine.
Silestone colors offered in leather are: Beige Olimpo, Cobalt Blue, Grey Expo, Minerva Cream, Red Eros, Tebas Black, White North, Amarillo Palmira, Capri Limestone, Green River, Kona Beige, Tea Leaf, Brazilian Brown, Blanco Maple, Golden Gea, Ivory Coast, Mahogany, Mont Blanc, Rainforest, White Zeus, Stellar Fire, Stellar Marine and Stellar Night.
Silestone Natural Quartz Surfaces
Silestone is the largest producer and distributor of natural quartz in the world—and the fastest growing countertop surface. Quartz is one of the hardest minerals on earth, making Silestone naturally scratch-resistant. Silestone is non-porous, and therefore highly stain-resistant without needing to be sealed. Silestone also has four times the flexural strength of granite, making it less susceptible to chipping, cracking or breaking. With nearly 50 colors and innovative products for every room in the house, Silestone sets the standard for the quartz surfacing industry. Silestone is the ONLY countertop in the world to have built-in Microban antimicrobial protection that inhibits the growth of microbes such as bacteria, mold and mildew.
Silestone is produced in Spain by Cosentino, a leader in natural stone with more than 70 years of industry experience. Silestone is available coast-to-coast through a mature network of distributors, Certified Silestone Installers, more than 3,500 retail outlets and online at e-counters.com.
