Apologies to the hundreds of quartz companies out there peddling Chinese, Indian, and South American quartz, but your days are numbered. With quartz flooding the market, and fabricators stockpiling containers, private labeling, and bringing in multiple brands without loyalty, the door has opened for alternative materials. Durat, PaperStone, and IceStone surfaces with recycled content have positioned themselves as the perfect oasis for designers and architects who are drowning in copycat quartz collections. These three brands have partnered to offer durable and beautiful alternatives that have a good backstory as well as a refined palette to make surfacing decisions easy and respectable. For more information on the collection, or to follow their journey as they roll out the collection, email firstname.lastname@example.org or follow us on instagram @modernsurfaces.
