Quarella  is a leader in defining the new colour trends and offer a good selection of more than 90 colours in its marble and quartz tile collections. This year ,six luscious new colours will be introduced to Quarella marble and quartz range, showcasing at Saturday in Design Sydney 2007, a two-day event to be held Friday 27 July and Saturday 28 July.

Three new colours in marble – Rosso Levanto, Nero Portoro and Rosso Asiago. Ardesia, Beige Dresda and Ametista make up the new additions to Quarella quartz, while existing colours New Rubino and New Diamante have been updated and refreshed.

“Full-on colour always existed in our ranges and is updated to reflect global trends in creativity and design,” says Stewart Macciolli, managing director of Quarella.

“Consumers want to be part of the creative process, to be visually stimulated and emotionally inspired by their personal space, so they are immersing themselves in strong colour more and more. Whites, neutrals and earth colours remain constant, with dynamic new takes on basic black enjoying the design spotlight.”

Get a grip

Quarella will also showcase its new products focussing on safety. r ten plus (R 10+), a surface treatment that is activated by moisture such as from the sole of your shoe to create an effective non-slip tile or slab.

DIY kits will be available for shower recesses as well as enamel and porcelain steel bathtubs.
