In the latest issue of Kitchen & Bath Business magazine, I found the latest look in quartz surfaces – patterns! Manufactured by CaesarStone, this product makes use of a polished/unpolished finishing process to produce a pattern in the countertop surface.
Motivo comes in a couple different patterns – an animal print (similar to an alligator skin) and a wallpaper-like damask. According to their website, the product is still non-porous and very low-maintenance. Very interesting look, and something completely different. While it’s not for every client and every space, I can definitely see applications for it!
I think it could be especially interesting in a commercial space – to dress up a boring ladies’ room or spice up a bar. What do you think? Is it something you could see in your home? If so, where would you use it?
