Go on trend with Smartstone industrial, concrete style surfaces

Because of its reuse, renew and recycle character, the industrial style trend has continued to rise and earned a permanent spot in the realm of interior design.

Once applied only for exteriors, the industrial look took off when abandoned factories were converted into artist studios, offices and residential lofts, inspiring an interior design style that dwells on an unfinished look that is edgy, modern and full of texture with unique contrasts.

Industrial style highlights raw elements such as pipes, wooden beams and concrete, blending them with different kinds of design features. For interiors, it can be applied on anything from accessories to lights to walls to floors to benchtops.

In response to lasting and current trends, Smartstone offers at least four concrete-inspired quartz surfaces that are designed to match an industrial colour palette of a mix of greys, neutrals and rustic.​

Pelle Grigio – An exclusive surface with a beautiful mottled texture and fine vein on a soft grey background, Pelle Grigio has a honed, leather finish.

Smartstone’s industrial, concrete-style benchtops pair well with natural elements such as timber and blend in perfectly with white spaces as well as black and white contrasts.

As a continuing trend in interior design for many years, the concrete look works well with almost any palette, fixture and landscape. And because of the raw appeal draws the eye, concrete-inspired Smartstone benchtops easily gain attention and can serve as an unassuming accent, taking centre stage in any living space.

Curated specifically for both traditional and modern spaces, Smartstone surfaces are ideal for any interior application, adding that subtle, sophisticated edge that is inherent in industrial architecture and design.

An engineered stone manufactured with a minimum of 93% quartz content, Smartstone surfaces come in a slab size of 3200mm x 1600mm, currently the largest in the market, for more flexible and cost-effective design options.

Other quartz surfaces from Smartstone that blend well with concrete style themes include Ceniza, Theron, Naxos, Gris Roca and Marengo – all available at different price points.
