New Wilsonart surfaces debuting at KBIS 2023 include:
Snow resting on frigid branches. Ethereal clouds on the sea horizon. Wilsonart® Quartz reflects exquisite scenes of nature like never before with 10 new designs inspired by the world around us. Ranging from Soapstone to the coveted rare beauty of deep-veined Calacatta marbles, these new styles offer elegant and tranquil looks ideal for any space. Reflecting current residential trends, the expanded Quartz collection also includes a new natural matte finish that will be available on select designs within the portfolio.
Wilsonart Quartz provides incredible strength and versatility, allowing design professionals to reimagine their style story without limits. It maintains its brilliance even in the most well-used areas. All Wilsonart Quartz designs are extremely durable, easy to maintain and clean, and are stain resistant. Wilsonart Quartz also is a recent recipient of the International Living Future Institute (ILFI) Declare label, which details the material health composition of building products to help inform consumers about the safety of the products they use every day. Wilsonart’s 10 new Quartz designs and natural matte finish will be available in late Spring 2023. For more information about Wilsonart Quartz, visit https://www.wilsonart.com/quartz.
Wilsonart® Solid Surface
The Wilsonart® Solid Surface collection captures nature’s movements and hues in six new modern designs. Blurring the lines between engineered and natural materials, the collection’s dynamic designs take realism to a new level, providing the looks of authentic marble, concrete and stone with scale, definition and variation you won’t find anywhere else. New hues range from warm taupes, charcoal greys and metallic dusts to a full range of cool, bright and soft whites. Capturing the look of concrete, the new Masoned Concrete infuses a patina of comfort and tactility, with its soft linear movement. To add a soothing yet transformative nature that will lend a creative touch to enhance your décor, is the new Calacatta Perlato. The soft and pearlescent silver-gold veins of the design appear to dance in the light.
Virtually seamless and non-porous, Wilsonart Solid Surface offerings are naturally resistant to fade, heat and most stains, and do not support the growth of mold, mildew and bacteria – making them ideal for use in residential and commercial kitchens, baths, laundry rooms and more. These surfaces are also durable, repairable and thermo-formable, and can easily be cleaned with just soap and water. Wilsonart’s six new Solid Surface designs will be available in early 2023.

Wilsonart® THINSCAPE® Performance Tops
On the heels of growing demand for its European-style, ultra-thin countertops, Wilsonart is adding three stone designs – Soluna, Sea Line Mist, and Pietra Noir – to its THINSCAPE® Performance Tops collection. Featuring delicate and refined movement, the new offerings range from neutral hues to never-before-seen dark stone looks typically exclusive to natural stone or high-end materials.
Wilsonart® THINSCAPE® Performance Tops deliver minimalist styling that pairs well with modern spaces by combining on-trend aesthetics with sleek engineering and everyday durability. Performance is not sacrificed in the countertop’s ultra-thin and stylish profile; instead, it offers exceptional durability with resistance to impact, scratches and moisture. THINSCAPE Performance Tops are ideal for kitchen countertops, bath vanities, laundry room worktops and commercial applications in hospitality, office and retail environments. Wilsonart’s three new THINSCAPE designs will be available in early 2023. For more information on THINSCAPE Performance Tops, visit https://www.wilsonart.com/thinscape.
