They come in 6x6 and 12x12 sizes and are available through the company’s quick-ship program.  

3. Lunada Bay Tile

Lunada Bay Tile’s Origami Field is a collection of glass field tiles reminiscent of the iconic Japanese art of geometric paper folding. Featuring opalescent coloring and three-dimensional forms, it comes in six shapes: Moxie (shown); Verve; Trapeze; Lacuna; and two linear options, Elation and Ambit. The designs work well on residential and commercial interior walls. Origami Field is an extension of the firm’s Origami line, which also includes mosaic tiles in four patterns and eight colors.

4. LOTTE Advanced Materials USA

Radianz countertops are made of natural quartz, a highly durable, nonporous material that resists marring, high temperatures, and physical impact. These countertops are unaffected by liquids and resist permanent staining from spilled coffee, juice, and wine. They require no sealing and little maintenance; common cleaning products can be used on them. Offered by LOTTE Advanced Materials USA, the line consists of more than 50 nature-inspired colors in numerous unique patterns and textures. 

5. Durat

Featuring 12 colors, the Durat Palace Collection the result of a collaboration between Durat and the MOST Collective. It joins Durat’s current lineup of more than 70 colors and furthers the firm’s mission to repurpose waste into a resource. This sustainable solid surface material is made from recycled polyester. Extremely durable, easy to maintain, and resistant to wear, humidity, and various chemicals, it’s ideal for interiors, including kitchen and bathroom countertops. 

6. Wilsonart

Wilsonart’s Blurred Lines Collection of eight laminate surfaces for kitchen and bath not only blurs the lines between warm and cool color tones, but also transforms the laminate with the firm’s exclusive Soft Silk finish. It is one of the most authentic, true-to-stone finishes Wilsonart says it has ever developed. The new designs are Benjamin Grey (shown), Praline Antico, Drama Marble, Cote d’Azur, Hebron White, Marmo Bianco, Ribbon Marble, and Serrania. 

7. Crossville Inc.

Crossville Inc. launched its on-trend Java Joint porcelain tile collection. The tiles feature soft striations of crema and neutrals, and come in five colors—House Blend, Two Sugars, French Press, Flat White, and Fresh Ground—in an easy-to-clean, unpolished finish. The collection is in 12-by-24-inch field tile format. The bullnose, cove base, and 2-by-2-inch mosaic options provide solutions to meet project requirements and create fully finished looks.  

8. clé

Three wood-fired terracotta tiles by clé expand the Belgian Reproduction collection to seven shapes: rectangle, losange diamond, circle, square, hex, star, and cross (star and cross combination shown). The hand-crafted tiles replicate the grand courtyards of northern Europe, with the blackened clay lending the unglazed, chalky surface a certain elegance. The tiles are available from 2-by-8-inch rectangles to 8-by-8-inch squares, hex, and circles. They can be installed indoors and out, on floors or walls. 

9. Consentino

Sensa by Cosentino is an extremely durable, maintenance-free natural stone surface for interior and exterior applications. It resists scratches and stains, and now five colors have been added to the existing 35 hues. The new colors (shown) are White Napoli, Silver Blue, Luna Blanca, Smoky White, and White Alamo. Sensa features Senguardâ, a deep treatment applied during the manufacturing process to protect the stone, helping eliminate required sealing for years to come.

10. Cultured Stone

The sculpted Ashlar profile by Cultured Stone comes in Silver Shore (green, gray); Grouse (tan, brown); and Ferrous (shown, featuring charcoal, copper, and carbon blue tones). Stone sizes range from 21⁄4 to 73⁄4 inches high, 51⁄2 to 201⁄2 inches long, and 1 to 2 inches thick. Ashlar can be used as the facing stone for a fireplace accent wall, but not all spaces will be conducive to the size/shape of its larger elements.
