At the recent Dwell on Design conference in LA, I was pleasantly surprised to discover CaesarStone’s new Pure White quartz-based countertop. Unlike CaesarStone’s other offerings, Pure White is a completely fleck-free surface with a silky finish. But as with other CaesarStone nonporous, 93-percent-quartz surfaces, Pure White never needs sealing, is resistant to stains, and carries a lifetime warranty. CaesarStone countertops typically cost about $60 to $80 per square foot, installed. Go to CaesarStone for dealer information and to view their photo gallery.
