Award winning design and surfaces


This home works wonders by making the most of, and showing off all possible surfaces. The award winning design by Richard Cardy Design perfectly showcases the Staron surfaces in a colourful and futuristic way

“In the initial client brief, the homeowner expressed a love for curves and colour. The surfaces that would be used had to create show pieces throughout the home. Starting with the kitchen benchtop, I selected Staron® solid surfaces. Staron® provided design freedom to create something unique. An open 100mm-thick thermoformed curved island unit was created and is the stand-out feature piece as you enter the open-plan kitchen space. The Staron® solid surface on the island continues in one monolithic surface and flows into double Staron® integrated sinks. I designed an office desk that features a large ceiling-to-floor Staron® pole through the centre of it, creating a futuristic and contemporary feel to the space that is featured within the living area adjacent to the kitchen. The desk features Staron® Quasar White with an inlay of California Poppy for a pop of vivid colour. Continuing with the curved theme, I designed a Staron® dining table using the same colours and surface so it complements the entire open-plan kitchen-dining area. Staron® was also extended into the bathroom, with five thermoformed vanity units and custom-made vanity basins. The vanity units really create an art-like feature to the space, while creating a calm and tranquil bathroom that the owners can enjoy.”
