Bringing nature indoors and capturing the essence of shinrin-yoku – the Japanese art of forest bathing, CRL Quartz Cristallo Azure was an ideal choice for a new kitchen in a wrap-around extension on the back of a 1960s semi-detached suburban home.
The quartz surface, teamed with green paint for a feature wall, bamboo flooring and stone-effect cabinets, creates a zen-like space, with the azure blue surface mimicking a lake next to the trees.
Cristallo Azure makes a stunning visual impression, while the durability of the quartz material ensures it will stay looking beautiful with minimal maintenance. The striking intensity of the sea-green colour makes it the perfect choice for this project, where it contrasts so well with the nature-inspired décor around it.
Responding to the huge and ongoing popularity for marble-effect materials in interior design, the CRL Quartz Cristallo Collection, nominated for Best Surface in the KBB Focus Awards 2023, brings the bold patterning and sense of drama to the fore.
New colours in on-demand marble-effect green, grey and blue make a stunning visual impression, whether used for worktops, splashbacks or as an eye-catching feature wall, while the durability of the quartz material makes it suitable for high-impact areas of such as the kitchen, bathroom and public spaces.
The collection showcases all the natural beauty of such materials with the practical benefits that quartz, as a low maintenance and extremely durable material, has to offer. CRL Quartz is a practical alternative to natural materials, creating a sense of luxury while being suitable for ‘wet and humid’ areas of the home. An engineered quartz stone, which is scratch, heat and stain resistant, CRL Quartz never needs to be sealed.
Colours in the Cristallo Collection aside from Azure include Verde, Platino and Gris, creating a range that is huge on style and practical plus points for the modern setting.
