When we think of sophisticated or elegant products, they generally don’t follow a trend. This season, Wilsonart released their Premium Laminate Series, called Madura, whose large scale variations in surface follows this movement away from the idea of it being seasonal and goes for a timeless effect.

New for 2011: Madura is the FSC-Certified, Premium Laminate Series by Wilsonart for the Kitchen or Bathroom Surfaces
The four designs that make up the Madura collection are notably different from other granites. Beginning with the Madura Gold - that comes as a light, golden beige containing sienna brown, soft gray, and black accents - it is the perfect compliment to warm wood tones. Then there is the Madura Pearl which looks great with lighter wood colors or contrasting hues of deep mahogany or walnut. Its warm white shade has light peach and pearl-gray accents. The Madura Garnet looks spectacular with stainless steel and black appliances since the dark garnet, soft grey and black combines with the mid-tones of mahogany in a dramatic fusion of dark colors. Finally, the Madura Citrine flashes a yellowish-gold tint into a warm white and amber accented surface that spins in a little soft gray and black. Ideal for maple and cherry cabinets with brown or spice stains, the Citrine lights up a kitchen island or countertop without taking it to the extreme.
The Madura granite is inspired by the quarried stone in Spain, India, and Brazil since it was historically held as the highest standard for both home and commercial projects alike. With the natural sheen “Quarry” finish along with AEON™ Enhanced Performance technology, the series looks and feels like real granite and is ultra-resistant to wear, never requiring a re-sealing.
