European Stone Trends Now in Canada

European technology and elegance is now available in Canada through Quartex Surfaces Inc. Providing quality grade products imported from Spain, Quartex specialises in premium Quartz and Porcelain slabs, with a natural and unique approach. Nevertheless, the main focus of this article is the emerging demand and development of large scale Porcelain slabs in the interior and exterior design industry.

When it comes to design trends and the latest fashion styles, Europe is typically always ahead of everyone else. This goes without saying that building materials are also much more advanced in European countries such as Spain and Italy. In the town of Briñas Spain, stands the palace founded in the 18th century, a building today known as Tondón Palace. Recent renovations implemented a transitional look that combines the austerity of its public front with the Mediterranean vitality of its private facade.

A sustainable hotel in contact with nature, the landscape and its history is the core concept underlying this project, intended to preserve the building’s identity whilst adapting it to its new function of providing service and comfort. Quartex’s X.I Crema from the MCD° Porcelana Line was a perfect fit for the flooring of this project, inspired by natural stone, giving these spaces a natural, seamless and functional finish.
