Arborite expands Maison Residential Collection with seven new designs
(February 2019—Montréal, Canada) — The designs in Arborite’s 2019 expansion of the Maison collection are at home with modern living. “The kitchen remains the heart of the home, but roles and rituals have shifted to align with contemporary lifestyles and family dynamics,” said Terry Gentile, marketing and design director for Arborite. “It’s evolved into a showplace for entertaining, a space to connect with family and a headquarters for household management.” Maison includes two series of high-pressure laminates providing the beauty and durability of natural stone at a fraction of the cost. Panorama’s full-scale scans capture the unique imperfections and veining of true stone, while Welcome Home’s neutral palette emulates composite stone. Arborite is introducing six new patterns to Panorama. Size up these beautiful designs with 100%-scale swatches. Select designs will be available with Arborite’s new Ultra Smooth (UL) finish, a burnished texture developed to amplify light play and depth of color within a pattern.
Inspired by the Modern Farmhouse aesthetic Terrazzo Grande (P1014) has a rustic, honest charm while Nuvolato Marble’s (P1013) well-structured veining is softened by blending neutral color tones.
Scandinavian Style influenced by hygge—the concept of coziness and little pleasures—comes through in two new designs. Dreamcatcher’s (P1018) organic look is striated like tree bark, with a welcoming visual depth. Carrara Venato (P1015) is a warm marble featuring veins of silver and volcanic glass, complementary to cabinetry ranging from light to dark.
Boomers and Millennials alike are migrating to urban environments, giving rise to the Industrial Luxe lifestyle, where contrast of texture, hue and materiality are key. Baroque Soapstone (P1017) offers a classically indulgent beauty of soapstone without its tendency to scratch or stain. Versailles Marble (P1016) is bright and refined. A unifying element with glimmering veins of white and gold over grey undertone.
The Welcome Home series welcomes Monolith (P407), a new design with stone attributes subtle in character and substantial in effect.
Select designs will be available with Arborite’s new Ultra Smooth (UL) finish, a burnished texture developed to amplify light-play and depth-of-color within a pattern.
