A selective review of the products, places and perspectives central to kitchen and bath design

Here's a US-exclusive look at a new quartz surfacing that will debut in March. From Caesarstone, the Supremo collection has a look unlike anything I've seen before; the design is, in fact, patented. The cellular-like pattern is randomly studded with concentrated pools of color. Shown here is the Shining Armor variant, which is one of eight colors [including a rich blue and, of course, black] that will be offered. At once graphic and organic, the material opens up some intriguing aesthetic possibilities. caesarstoneus.com
