We love weathered finishes. We also love materials that create a distressed look without having to wait half a century for the natural weathered patina. Neolith’s Iron Collection offers a great alternative to actual reclaimed materials, especially since it also offers a durability unmatched by most surfacing choices today.

The word Neolith literally means “new stone.” But ask manufacturer The Size about this ultra compact, super slim material, and they’re likely to tell you it could also be called “new and improved stone.” Formed from natural raw materials and engineered to astounding degrees of durability, Neolith is having a profound impact on the North American surfacing industry. As one of the largest East Coast distributors of Neolith in the U.S., we’ve watched the demand for this innovative material grow over the past year, reflecting the success Neolith is experiencing overall in the North American surfacing industry.

We’re stone and surfacing experts, not interior designers. However, our customers commonly ask us for suggestions when it comes to cabinetry and countertop color combinations. So we make it a priority to know the latest color and style trends so that we can make sensible suggestions that give our clients the beautiful end results they desire. One surface we’ve recently had fun “color matching” is ColorQuartz in French Tan.
