There are the four new Silestone countertop colors in the ECO by Cosentino® line that we saw at Living Kitchen in Germany this year. The new ECO colors (left to right) include:
- Creamstone, a mixture of cream colors that resemble the look and feel of luxurious limestone. This one looks like a dead ringer for the marble color CREME DE MARFIL;
- Red Pine, a combination of recycled material against a white background with chocolate and coffee accents which will be available in Cosentino’s new matte, finish, Suede.
- Forest Snow, a blend of recycled glass and ceramic pieces mixed with peach, cream, brown and terracotta speckles;
- Grey Moss, a mixture of grey tones and slate that resembles a contemporary concrete look made out of small recycled pieces of glass.
Silestone was patented in 1990, and their surfaces consist of more than 90% natural quartz, which is one of the most durable natural elements. It has a hard surface that is highly resistant to scratches, staining, and natural acids. The non-porous surface is even coffee, wine, and vinegar resistant. Silestone has a low fluid-absorption capacity, making it a hygienic surface that is easy to maintain. According to Cosentino, “ECO is made from up to 75% post-consumer and post-industrial recycled raw materials, including: mirrors salvaged from houses, building and factories; glass from windows and bottles; granulated glass from consumer recycling practices; porcelain from china, tiles, sinks, toilets and decorative elements; and industrial furnace residuals from factories in the form of crystallized ashes. The recycled content is then mixed with 25% natural stone including: scrap from mountains, quarries, manufacturing, and fabrication; and is bonded together with a proprietary, eco-friendly resin made in part by corn oil that also eliminates the need for sealants.”
