Staron – a solid surfacing brand of Korea-headquartered Lotte Advanced Materials – has introduced two new finishes to its Urban Series collection.

These include Aspen Misto and Sanded Goose to create a feeling of subtle urban style.

“Designed with modern living in mind, the Urban Series collection from Staron introduces an effortless urban character into interiors. Inspired by the wave of contemporary, industrial design trends that have captured the interiors world, 2019 sees the introduction of two new finishes to the collection,” says a spokesman for Staron.

Inspired by the sights, sounds and energy of a vibrant metropolitan environment, each of the Urban Series surfaces offers a modern, refined finish that will enhance any residential or commercial setting. “With 10 colour options to choose from, opt for Steel to evoke an on-trend industrial feel or select the softer and more detailed Sanded Goose,” he says.

As with all other solid surface products from Staron, the Urban Series collection has been developed especially for use in residential and commercial applications. Combining a stunning appearance with outstanding practical qualities, the award-winning and revolutionary solid surface is a sophisticated blend of natural minerals and thermosetting acrylic polymers.

“Both hygienic and durable in equal measure, Staron’s exceptional practical features offer total flexibility when it comes to design. A non-porous material that is impervious to moisture, Staron provides a seamless finish on any shaped surface,” he adds.

Vincent ... art deco inspiration.

Essential Home, an innovative Portuguese modern furniture brand, intends to make a statement with the launch of Vincent, a mid-century sideboard with an art deco inspiration.

“Vincent is a timeless example of good taste,” says a spokesman for the company. “With a white marble base and a body handmade in solid walnut, it is the amount of detail that went into building this mid-century credenza that makes it unique. This modern sideboard would look great in an art deco living room, as well as a modern dining room with a classic twist.”

Essential Home is a mid-century modern furniture brand that takes important historical and cinematographic references from the 1930s and 1960s and turns them into unique furnishing pieces. What started out as ‘Essentials’ in 2015, a furniture collection by the mid-century lighting brand DelightFull, quickly grew to be an elegant representation of mid-century modern design, thus creating a new name, and a new brand, Essential Home.

“Soon we understood that this collection had a life of its own. Essential Home’ eclectic style inspired us to create more and more,” says one of the designers involved in the creation of Essential Home.

Essential Home’s alluring designs are present in the most important interior design centres around the world, including London, Paris and New York.
