SAPIENSTONE PRESENTS NEW HIGH-PERFORMANCE PORCELAIN DESIGNS & HOSTS AWARDS OPENING PARTY AT KBIS 2020 Booth SL449

Jan 17, 2020

CHICAGO, IILINOIS (JAN. 17, 2019) – SapienStone, a
leader in high-tech porcelain surfaces, showcases its latest color
introductions, announces brand collaborations and proudly sponsors the Kitchen
& Bath Design + Industry Awards and Opening Party at the 2020 Kitchen &
Bath Industry Show, taking place January 21-23 in Las Vegas, NV.

SapienStone’s new designs include:

Fior di Bosco – polished and silky finish

Premiering Fior di Bosco,
this new color beautifully mirrors Italian gray marble.  Simple yet elegant, Fior di Bosco features a
gray background lightened by delicate white veining and has a cloudy effect
that softens the transition from one gradation to another. The two finish
options, polished and silky, make this worktop suitable for any type of kitchen
style: the glossy, reflective polished look gives the color greater depth while
the velvety finish of the silky texture accentuates the subtlety of the design. 

Noir – natural finish

Staying on trend with the outstanding
kitchen designs that are incorporating black and dark grey surfaces,
SapienStone is also debuting its new, warm black design – Noir.
This worktop offers a monochromatic look that is extremely versatile in stylistic
terms, suiting both traditional and modern kitchen styles. The main aesthetic
qualities of Noir include the possibility of combining it with dark fixtures
and accessories for a completely sleek look or alternating it with white for a fun
contrast of surfaces.

Premium White – natural
finish

Although it is not a new color,
SapienStone is happy to share PremiumWhite in a new finish this year at KBIS. Premium White in
a natural finish combines a white background with fine pale gray veins that
flicker across the slab, creating an elegant and refined look. The soft look
and feel of the design naturally curates the perfect color to pair well with
both the trendiest styles and boldest forms of customization, such as Dark
Marquina.  

SapienStone is a thin profile 12mm porcelain
countertop product that can be used in a variety of residential and commercial applications.
Boasting scratch, heat, UV, and chemical resistance, the product also carries
full-body design through the edge of the material.

Located in the South Hall of the Las
Vegas Convention Center, show attendees are encouraged to visit booth SL449
to view the new designs and learn about the beauty and benefits of SapienStone
products.

“We are excited to be debuting our new color
introductions this year at KBIS. Not only are our slabs visually pleasing, but
they are also durable and low-maintenance,” said James Amendola, Director of
National Sales & Marketing for SapienStone. “As we continue to grow our
brand presence in the U.S., it is imperative that we bring innovative surfacing
products to the market that are not only easily accessible, but that also meet
the needs of the end consumer. We do that by offering streamlined fabrication, installation
and simple maintenance. We’re fortunate to have the opportunity to be a part of
the industry’s most important show and are looking forward to learning,
collaborating and building upon the momentum it offers.”

On Monday, January 20 from 6:30 pm-11:00 pm,
SapienStone is proud to be a sponsor of the Kitchen
& Bath Design + Industry Awards | Opening Party. During this exciting
evening, the National Kitchen & Bath Association will be recognizing the
accomplishments of industry professionals, announcing the winners of the NKBA
Design Competition, and more. After the ceremony, the Garden Masquerade party
will commence and attendees will be encouraged to take home a snapshot of the
night, courtesy of the SapienStone photobooth.

Product design insight will be shared as well-known
designer and developer Anthony Carrino, from HGTV’s Kitchen Cousins and
Ellen DeGeneres’ The Build Up, makes
an appearance in the SapienStone booth on Tuesday, January 21st from
10:00 am – 12:00 pm. Be sure to stop by and learn all about his one-of-a-kind
design project, TheBuild.tv, and
why he describes SapienStone as the “ultimate countertop surface.”

SapienStone Basalt Black, Arabescato and Pietra Gray
can be seen as the exclusive surfacing materials featured in the Monogram
booth, selected by renowned designer Richard Anuszkiewicz. Located in the Central
Hall, #C5916 at the show, the sophisticated styling and exceptional
craftmanship sets Monogram apart from other premium appliance brands and the
beauty can be seen in every detail – making them the perfect partner for
SapienStone as both materials blend seamlessly in the kitchen.
