Daltile has added four new surface profiles to its Natural Quartzite collection – Tartarus, Moreno, Chacra and Savoie. Each one is available as a countertop or an extra-large stone slab surface.
According to the manufacturer, the Natural Quartzite collection’s surfaces are harder than granite, offer a long usable life, and resist heat, stains, scratching, and etching.
“Natural quartzites offer the look and feel of marble, with all of the benefits of granite’s durability and hardness, so they are a great solution for areas where people want style, but need high performing materials, such as in a kitchen. By expanding our Natural Quartzite collection, we are offering our customers even more options to create the spaces of their dreams,” says Roy Viana, director of natural stone and slab for Dal-Tile Corporation.
All four of the Quartzite Collection’s new colors are available in a polished finish. Tartarus is a bold, dark surface with subtle veins, Moreno features a highly-varied gray stone pattern, Savoie is a griege color with terrazzo agglomerated visual, and Chacra is a light-grey surface with bold, dark veins. All are recommended for use as countertops, walls, backsplashes, vanities, and in showers or fireplaces.
“All four of our new Natural Quartzite additions fit into the currently popular Biophilia interior design trend,” says Laura Grilli, Dal-Tile Corporation’s senior manager of product development. “The Biophilia trend fosters being in touch with nature, connecting with nature. These four new products are ‘natural elements expressed in total freedom’.”
