I’m struck by two thoughts at once (which is overload for me). First, I’m thinking how tough it is for companies to get the word out about things. Second, is an awesome new-ish product by Caesarstone. It’s a pattern-textured solid surface called Motivo from Caesarstone.
You might be thinking that this looks no different than thousands of textured wallpaper products you’ve seen forever. At first glance, they are similar. But there are oh so many differences, the most useful of which is that this material is waterproof. Hello new shower!
Potential Uses Include
Backsplashes (Kitchen or bath)
Custom Vanities (see photo right)
Custom design accents anywhere
Really, the uses are only limited by your imagination and, maybe, your budget. My bubble of excitement burst a little bit when I found out the price is close to $100 per sf. That adds-up in a hurry!
What About That First Thought?
Right, about how tough it is for companies to get the word out.
While I’m not instantly buried in every design magazine and blog the instant a new bit of material is published, I do pay pretty close attention to design “stuff”.
Yet I’ve missed this for awhile. In fact, the funny thing is that I’ve missed it and it has been constantly advertised on my own website! I think the ad they show through Google uses a black textured product with a leather/snakeskin like texture and it does nothing for me, so I miss the ad completely. I noticed the white yesterday in a magazine and that caught my eye.
I guess it just reinforces what I’ve always known. To stay ahead of the trends, pay attention to the ads.
Here is a link to the Motivo Collection at Caesarstone … do you like it? Would you spend the money? (or do I need to keep my feminine side in-check and NOT say anything when I like something like this!)
