The mood boards are looking spectacular so far and we’re thrilled to announce the winner tonight! Stay tuned!
The day has come: our first stop on the 2012 Caesarstone Pop Up Tour has begun!
We’re here in beautiful New York City at the South Street Seaport getting ready to open the tent to the media. They can’t wait to get in and get a sneak peek at our beautiful new color samples and the gorgeous mood boards prepared by the competitors of the LUXE Interiors + Design Mood Board Competition.
Here’s a breakdown of today’s agenda. Come by and see us!
With the Pop-Up Color Tour on its way we are thinking of our favorite hues of 2012. New York city is our first stop, and a tremendous source of design inspiration when it comes to exploring todays hottest colors and textures. We have been spending a lot of time in the Meatpacking district and are loving the industrial feel that comes from the mixture of metal and exposed wood. Another common find is subway tile, which has made its way from the everyday commute and into the most sophisticated of kitchens. We also love spending time at the High Line park, built on a historic freight rail line that has literally elevated the old school viewpoint of life in the metropolitan outdoors.
All of these wonderful facets of NYC bring about a tremendous source of inspiration, and perhaps one of the most striking elements is the emergence of color trends in every day materials. From the sophisticated palettes of uptown, to the vibrance of the East Village, we have been exploring New York as a color frontier. More and more we are seeing a variation on neutrals and one of our favorites is Greige, a mix of beige and gray that delivers a gorgeous natural hue. Greige is quickly becoming a standard fixture amongst the most sophisticated design palettes and the inspiration for Supremo Shining Armor.
What is your favorite mixture of colors?
You’ve probably heard that changing your lightbulbs to compact fluorescent lightbulb (CFLs) is good for the environment. Did you know why? Or how?
If every household in the United States replaced just one regular lightbulb with a CFL bulb, the pollution reduction would equal removing one million cars from the road. The EU has already banned both 100W and 75W bulbs and the spirly bulbs are now available in every convenience store and gas station, let alone home improvement stores.
These bulbs use 75% less energy than standard bulbs and can last up to 10 times as long. Not to mention, they can save you up to $30 for the life of each bulb. How many lights do you have in your house? Count them!
Don’t like the look of them or the color of light? More and more manufacturers are catching on and offering more aesthetically pleasing options. Now your CFL can be masked as reflectors, a-line bulbs, decorative bulbs or globes.
So how about you? Have you already made the switch? If not, why?
By now you know a little bit about us and what we do. But did you know that we are a global company? How about that we’ve earned the respected Good Housekeeping Seal? Below are a few points that you may not have known about us:
· We are the original quartz surface manufacturer and have the ability to produce over 20 million square feet of quartz surfaces per year.
· Quartz is a common waste product of other mining industries and is available in quantities far greater than any other stone. We process it, crush it, wash it and use it to create stunning, versatile surfaces.
· We recycle 97% of the water used in our manufacturing process and collect all dust to prevent air pollution.
· We were chosen as the exclusive surface of project7ten, one of the few Platinum LEED homes in the country
· One of our manufacturing plants is situated on Israel’s beautiful Mediterranean coast near the ancient Roman city of Caesarea.
We’re proud of our efforts and are happy to be considered innovative trend setters within the industry. If you’re interested in what’s next for Caesarstone, join us! In celebration of the launch of 17 new colors we’re hosting a series of pop up events across the US. First up: New York City! You can RSVP here.
