I recently attended a webinar by Cosentino, a webinar that I thought was really well organised, visual attractive and informative. Although I missed the real connection with people, and the drinks and the bites that normally comes along. Cosentino is a Spanish brand after all and I always felt really welcome and got to experience their hospitality from New York to Madrid and my own city of Amsterdam, not to forget their Dutch headquarter where I selected my own countertop!
This last week Silestone introduced Loft a new collection with five colours inspired by industrial design: Camden, Poblenou, Seaport, Nolita and Corktown. The name of each color represents an iconic neighbourhood with its own distinct history and industrial style. This style originally dates from the mid-1920s when abandoned factories, large workshops, and warehouses in various New York neighbourhoods were converted into homes and loft apartments. All presented in beautiful videos that reflect the atmosphere of the neighbourhood.
Silestino Camden is inspired by this neighbourhood. Authentic steel tones and the natural wear and tear of homes inspired Camden. A soft, delicate and consistent gray, with a fine grain and subtle white veins. Silestone Camden is cement gray. It is a versatile, adaptable color that can be easily incorporated into any interior thanks to its homogeneity.
The old industrial buildings have been transformed into fantastic lofts, surrounded by art galleries, bars and businesses. Its essence has inspired Silestone® to Poblenou. A warm shade of gray with subtle veins on a sandy background, providing clarity and a soothing finish and familiar atmosphere.
A stroll through the streets or a glimpse of Michigan’s iconic Central Station is all it takes to recognize its historic industrial splendor. This has inspired Silestone Corktown, the most intense, solid and deep black in the Silestone® Loft collection. The dark background combines beautifully with intense brown accents and an extra matte finish. Silestone Corktown is reminiscent of worn materials that have passed through time. Character and elegance united in color.
