Lapitec at KBIS

Write this down...Booth #SL1037

Sintered stone is hot. Put your hot pot down on it hot. Lapitec sintered stone is the hottest new surface that handles the heat while keeping its cool.

We will be at KBIS in Las Vegas, February 19th - 22nd, at the Lapitec booth, promoting the next generation of material: sintered stone. It's the best answer to the recent quartz conundrum - high tariffs, low quality, etc.

Lapitec’s booth is always impressive and this year will be no exception with new colors and textures to get your hands on. Plus with its inherently healthy BioCare technology, you can be sure that it will be one of the cleanest spaces in Las Vegas.   

Did you write it down? Here's your second chance...Booth #SL1037

Don’t Be Scandi-less In 2019

We always keep a keen eye on our Northern European friends in Finland, Sweden, and Norway to see what is trending in the design world and are excited to see sustainable and decorative wood continue to dominate the interior and exterior design market. We are also excited to see colour starting to trend. The term “Scandi Colour” has become part of the vernacular with events like “Durat Talks 2019 - The Impact of Colour”, kicking off this January. Look at brands like Koskisen, with its high-grade plywood that incorporates pops of color while staying true to the natural wood grain, as well as Durat solid surface, with its brilliant colors and sustainable backstory. Both materials are produced in Finland and are readily available in the US.

Sinter is Coming

Game of Stones. The go-to surface has shifted from quartz to more progressive thinking companies like Lapitec, who designed the surface of the future: sintered stone. Designed to withstand the elements and enable healthier living in healthier spaces, sintered stone outperforms quartz and natural stone on all levels. Designed by Breton, one of the most innovative companies in man-made stone, Lapitec has decades of expertise incorporated into its recipe and inherent characteristics which make it the superior surface on the market. Quartz may be on its final season.

America Got Trashy

Acrylic high heels? Trash 'em. Plastic can’t be sent to China anymore as they initiated the National Sword program, limiting the amount and quality of recycled goods that they would accept from many countries, including the US. The result? Materials that were once recyclable are now piling up in landfills and recycling facilities are closing as they have nobody to buy their goods, relegating them to the dump. Don’t think it is a real thing? 2019 will be the year these fees start to hit the curb. You might need to pick up a side job. Look to CaraGreen to introduce some new products that deliberately repurpose our recycling into sexy, sassy surfaces. Coming 2019
