7 New Arborite Designs You Must See Now

The H.J. Oldenkamp Company is excited to announce the expansion of the Maison residential Collection at Arborite®. The kitchen still very much remains the heart and soul of a home, yet some of the roles of the kitchen have shifted. While it still remains as a place for home chefs to cook up delicious meals, the emergence of kitchen islands have turned kitchens into a place for gathering and entertaining. The recently launched designs at Arborite® feature a variety of colors and patterns in laminate texture that will add both beauty and durability to countertops. 

Arborite 7 New Residential Designs

Featuring two series of laminate texture in the Maison collection, these new designs add six new patterns to the Panorama Collection, one new design to the Welcome Homes series, and a new Ultra Smooth (UL) finish to select designs.

7 New Laminate Texture Designs

The neutral warm new tones of the Panorama collection create a realistic stone look for a fraction of the cost. Inspired by rustic charm, nature, and classic marbling, these four new patterns certainly won’t disappoint:

  • Terrazzo Grande (P1014)
  • Nuvolato Marble (P1013)
  • Dreamcatcher (P1018)
  • Carrara Venato (P1015)

With the rise of urban and industrial living, Arborite® introduced two new designs that add texture and classic beauty to a space:

  • Baroque Soapstone (P1017)
  • Versailles Marble (P1016)

The Welcome Home Collection adds one new laminate texture. Monolith (P407) is a neutral, grey stone-like design that adds subtle character and movement. 

Select designs will also be available in Arborite®’s new Ultra Smooth (UL) finish, which is a burnished texture that helps to amplify light, movement, and enhance the depth of color. 

Just like with any new product introduction, Arborite® has also discontinued some colors and patterns. To see a full list of everything that’s been discontinued, please click here

This Just In: New Remodeling and Building Products

The Home Builders Association of Southeastern Michigan (HBA) recently published an article about new building and remodeling products. With more and more getting introduced each year, some building products help to solve age-old building challenges with new technology while others are designed to enhance the beauty of homes. 

Our Showroom Manager and Supervisor, April Parker, was one of the industry experts interviewed for this article, and was able to talk about some of H.J. Oldenkamp Company’s favorite innovative wall coverings.

The first product mentioned was plankwise® interior hardwood wall coverings, which is a Michigan-based company. Made with real wood veneer, plankwise® creates a high-end feel to any type of space for a very moderate price. A great way to add plankwise® to your space is through vertical or ceiling applications. Available in Maple, Walnut, White Oak, Grays Reef, and Whiskey, this product has a tongue and groove design for easy installation and comes in two sizes.

Building products such as plankwise interior hardwood wall coverings are new to the marketplace.

Another product mentioned was ATI Decorative Laminates. Using the MirroFlex™ Structures, you can use this building product for walls, ceilings, and backsplashes. ATI is made out of plastic composite materials that closely resemble metals, like stainless steel. In fact, they are so realistic that it’s very hard to tell that they aren’t made of metal. 

ATI provides a building product that looks like metal.

The last favorite innovative wall coverings April talked about was M.R. Walls. Being a great showpiece on a wall in either a hotel or office, artist Mario Romano uses a Corian® Solid Surface to carve out an incredible art piece that’s usually based on the client’s vision. This work is extremely eye catching and has a lot of designers and architects talking about the creativity and versatility of it.

M.R. Walls is an innovative building product taking the industry by storm.

Introducing The 2019 Corian® Quartz Colors

More exciting news from DuPont™ Corian® Design. With the Corian® Solid Surface new color announcement, we indicated that this is Corian® Design’s biggest launch ever which means we’re now excited to introduce you to the 2 new aesthetics of Corian® Quartz. With these 10 new colors, you’ll find 6 high-gloss finishes and 4 with a soft textured leathered feel. These Corian® Quartz aesthetics are now available.

Whether you’re a consumer, architect, or fabricator, these new colors of Corian® Quartz will leave you amazed. Let’s take a look and learn more about them.

The 6 High-Gloss Colors of Corian® Quartz

Crisp white: Being one of the top home design trends for 2019, white counter tops help to elevate any space. The two new colors, Bianco Pur and Bianco Marmor, certainly don’t disappoint. Bold and marble-like, these colors will set the foundation for an elegant space.

Neutral: In today’s design world, we are also seeing bold wall colors, painted cabinets, and bronze appliances. The perfect compliment is a neutral surfacing material. Choosing from either Oyster Grigio and Geo Grigio will give your space a geologic look as they both have beautiful deep veining coursing throughout.

Gray: Whether it’s on your counter top or cabinets, grey is in! From the light colored, Ashen Gray to the dark and sleek Slate Geo, these two colors both show simple veining that helps to add to the movement of the quartz.

Any one of these high-gloss colors will allow for endless design possibilities.

The 4 Leathered Texture Aesthetics

All of these new leathered colors should seem familiar as they were selected from existing popular Corian® Quartz colors. The low-sheen finish and subtle pebble texture catches the eye while providing a surface that invites a new type of style and design.

Venetia Cream Leathered, Coarse Pepper Leathered, Storm Grey Leathered, and Dove Grey Leathered are the four colors in this aesthetic. All of which are ideal surfaces for a home, retail space, or office space.

To learn more about the new colors of Corian® Quartz, please visit http://www.coriandesign.com.

Why Corian® Quartz?

This surfacing material is made with extremely hard quartz crystals allowing it to survive nicks and cuts from daily use. This composition also helps to reduce both the short-term and long-term maintenance. Additionally, you’ll never have to seal, polish, or recondition the surface. All that’s needed to clean it is soap and water – it’s as easy as that.

Corian® Quartz is also nonporous which means it doesn’t allow liquids to penetrate the surface which means mold and bacteria have no where to grow. This surface is also heat-resistant; however, it is recommended to use trivets and heat pads when setting a hot pot on your surface for a long period of time.

Lastly, Corian® Quartz is stain-resistant and will stay beautiful for many years.

At H.J. Oldenkamp, we’ve been a proud distributor of Corian® Quartz for over 45 years. Our territory includes all or portions of Michigan, Alabama, Florida, Kentucky, Mississippi, and Tennessee. For questions or to request samples or literature on Corian® Quartz, please contact our team today.

Aggregate Collection: Encompassing four new colors, this collection showcases the use of an industrial look. Neutral Aggregate, Ash Aggregate, Weathered Aggregate, and Carbon Aggregate express the modern and timeless look of Corian® Solid Surface while being able to transition between different design styles and applications.

Terrazzo Collection: These three new colors are the perfect combination of classic and angular. Featuring whites, grays, and blacks, these colors were inspired by mid century design. Teasing, calming, and contrasting – with either Domino Terrazzo, Pebble Terrazzo, or Basalt Terrazzo, you’ll be able to find a dramatic, dimensional, and stylish look for any space.

Linear Collection: Where parallel lines meet, two calming and cooling colors form this collection. With both Silver Linear and Sepia Linear, variegated lines of each color streak through a pure white base. Sharp, modern, and defining what parallel veining should look like, these linear colors can be created with uninterrupted lines or staggered for a staccato effect.

Nuwood Collection: Showcasing one of the earth’s most gorgeous natural resources, wood, this collection allows you to create a space in a whole new way. From rich Mahogany Nuwood to the sun washed Beech Nuwood, with this collection, you can let your imagination run wild.

Onyx Collection: Bold. Unique. Colorful. The swirls of green or gold emulate energy and beauty. Able to be illuminated from either below or above, the two colors in this Onyx collection (Jade Onyx and Golden Onyx) help to create a multi-layered classic and unique look.

Solid Collection: Vibrant and rich, the two colors (Verdant and Laguna) make a bold, clean, and harmonizing statement. Celebrating a new direction for blues and greens, these two new solid colors are perfect for both residential and commercial applications both inside and out.
