Le Sueur, Minn.— Cambria, a producer of American-made quartz surfaces, has introduced four new designs and one finish to its palette. The new looks bring the total to eight new designs in 2021.
The four new designs, inspired by the idea of the quintessential summer vacation, are designed to invoke journeys taken, moments experienced and memories created, the company said.
The new designs offer cool whites warmed by honey or complemented by gray, textured ridges, flecks of silver, cascading black veining, abundant swirls and charcoal gray veins, the company said.
Included in the launch is the introduction of Cambria’s Satin Ridge finish. The sheen sits between Cambria’s high gloss and Cambria matte finishes, with texture throughout the design. “The veins are larger-size quartz crystals that appear almost petrified,” explained Summer Kath, EVP of design. “They seem to float and add a level of contour.” Cambria Satin Ridge finish is available exclusively on Cambria’s new Leabridge design.
Cambria’s four new designs are below:
True to its name, the cool whites and grays of Sandgate aim to mimic the surface of a favorite childhood beach or treasured memory with enticing glints of silver flecks that add extra depth and dimension, according to the company. Sandgate’s array of calming neutrals reflects a serene, speckled shoreline and brings a sense of calm that consumers are yearning for in their homes, now more than ever, the company said.
According to the company, earthy hues intertwined with soft swirls meld together to create organic movement. The intermingling of neutral tones aim to make the design very versatile. “Sandgate is not meant to be the star of the show,” Kath said. “It can be used anywhere and everywhere because it’s beautiful and complements any style.”
According to the company, high-contrast, deeply saturated black veining cascades across a cool white background, intersecting with softer veins. Hemsworth showcases a unique type of striated veining that strikes across the intricate terrain of the slab with compelling movement. The varied saturation of the veining, from intense to pulsating, creates fluidity to ensure standout veining in each run, the company said.
“We were inspired by urban European cities like Paris where stark white buildings mix with architectural black trim for a classically beautiful combination,” Kath explained. Juxtaposing the sea of seamless all-white design, Hemsworth elevates classic white with the sophistication of bold black, the company said.
An update to the beige invasion of the early 2000s, brown is back in 2021, but with a fresh spin, the company said. Halewood features abundant swirls of charcoal gray veins, which aim to animate the wheat-toned design. Beige and white accents provide a subtle softness with a crystallized feel. “With Halewood, we were inspired by earth tones and the color palette of the wilderness, mountains and desert,” Kath said. “Halewood offers so much flexibility with tones reminiscent of the outdoors, which gives it a magical earthiness.”
With what the company is calling a “first-of-its-kind quartz finish”, Leabridge with Satin Ridge finish features gradations of cool white and warm honey with borders of textured ridges. Reminiscent of the salt flats in Utah, Leabridge has a fractal aesthetic with a color gradient, the company said.
“We’re energized by the possibilities of this new finish,” Kath explained. “And we’re looking forward to seeing the applications you discover and how this might awaken your sense of place.”
The new Cambria Satin Ridge finish is available exclusively on the Leabridge design. Because of its unique characteristics, edges differ in look and feel from the top surface. Mitering extends the top surface to exterior edges. Leabridge offers the same maintenance-free benefits as all Cambria designs.
Hemsworth, Halewood and Sandgate are available in Cambria matte and high-gloss finishes.
With up to 19 different edge profile treatments, Hemsworth, Halewood and Sandgate are offered in XL size slabs 132 x 65.5, and Leabridge with Satin Ridge finish is offered in a standard 122 x 55.5 size. All four designs are available in 2cm and 3cm—Leabridge with Satin Ridge finish is slightly thicker than regular 2cm and 3cm designs, the company said.
