In July 2016, Kitchen & Bath Business featured Eldorado Stone in an article titled, “Below the Surface,” discussing industry surface trends with two quotes from Ramsay Hawfield, vice president of marketing and product development at Eldorado Stone.
“What surface trends are you seeing in the market today?”
“For stone, we are seeing more long linear lines in stone shapes compared to the squares and rectangles of the recent past. Consumers are adding more accent walls in addition to a fireplace upgrade. They are now adding stone to accent walls and archways to create focal points and add color and texture to blank walls.” –Ramsay Hawfield
“What new innovations are you particularly excited about when it comes to surfaces?”
“Consumers are living in outdoor spaces more often these days, and they are taking their kitchen and living room amenities outside. The materials from the kitchen are transitioning seamlessly into the outdoor kitchen and the outdoor conversation space. The stone on the outside of the home is wrapping through windows and doors to the inside of the home to create full stone walls. Walking from your interior kitchen to your outdoor living space feels like a natural extension of your home.”- Ramsay Hawfield
