Honed Surfaces For Considered Design

By popular demand, Smartstone has recently introduced a collection of refined, honed surfaces in quartz – offering the authentic, semi-matte look of natural stone.

The new honed surfaces from Smartstone are the perfect solution for offering a natural stone aesthetic while still delivering Smartstone’s well-established superior durability.

“Responding to market demand, the Naturale Collection is manufactured using the most advanced technology to offer honed surfaces that combine superior qualities of durability and beauty,” says Belinda Kelaher, Managing Director of Smartstone Australia.

The Naturale Collection of honed surfaces can be used on a near-endless list of applications, ideal for changing your kitchen or bathroom benchtops into designer pieces.

The five new honed surfaces from Smartstone in the Naturale Collection are…

Ash Naturale – a warm yet edgy dark grey surface with subtle veining.​

Blanco Naturale – a beautiful, flat putty white with a silky finish.

Borghini Naturale – veined with soft, grey tones and a dewy finish.

Concreto Naturale – a raw, industrial concrete-look surface with an organic pattern.

Gris Naturale – a speckled, steel-grey surface in consistent fine-grained quartz.

The Naturale Collection features a larger slab size of 3200 x 1600mm, making it highly cost effective with greater design possibilities, and the surfaces are awarded all Smartstone Certifications and come with the Smartstone 15-year Limited Warranty.
