DALLAS (June 25, 2013) – For thousands of years, natural stone has been admired for its ability to add unmatched elegance and character to any design due to its naturally varied appearance. Bringing a touch of luxury and unmistakable quality to residential and commercial spaces, Daltile is pleased to introduce new color additions to its Granite and Quartzite Natural Stone Slabs as well as a new collection and four fresh colors to its ONE™ Quartz Quartz Slabs.

“These beautiful, nature inspired looks are an exciting addition to Daltile’s expansive selection of stone slabs,” said Lori Kirk-Rolley, senior marketing director for Daltile. “We’re thrilled to expand our collections with timeless options that will inspire elegant design.”

New Stone Slab Introductions:

Natural Stone Slabs – Granite & Quartzite

Daltile’s Granite and Quartzite slabs are an ideal way to make a distinct statement into any space, and with Daltile’s newest color additions, designing with confidence just got easier. New granite color additions include Sienna Brulee, Enchanted Forest and Arabian Nights, and Crystallize is the newest Quartzite color option.

Sienna Brulee is unique and exclusive with chocolate-cinnamon colors and gorgeous amber veining. Enchanted Forest swirls with soft blues and rich greens creating a dramatic, unique pattern. Arabian Nights is a stunner, featuring deep tones of black with soft waves of gray and white for a distinct, exotic look. Crystallize is a majestic white marble-look quartzite with subtle variations. Available sizes include 3/4” (2 cm) and 1-1/4 (3 cm).
