If your next project is a bar or restaurant you're already thinking how the overall design will reflect the food, drinks and vibe of the venue and customers, but if you want to make one statement piece, let it be the most photographed item in every restaurant space - the bar top itself.
Bathroom design trends are constantly evolving, but one thing remains constant: the desire for a knockout space. But what if your bathroom is lacking in the square footage department? No worries: it’s simple to add impact with a smart combination of countertops, flooring and cabinetry — the workhorses and focal points of any design. Vetrazzo's recycled glass countertops add color, character and one-of-a-kind appeal, proving time and again that you don’t need a big space to make a big impact.
Down on Lafayette Street in SoHo, NY there is Vietnamese restaurant where the sun pours in through a sky light onto the happiest of tables ever to serve a bowl of Pho noodle soup.
From neutral palettes to color spurges, Vetrazzo’s recycled glass countertops make their appearance on many mood boards and material selections. In love with the creativity of the designers who feature Vetrazzo, we gathered a few of our favorite finds and asked them for the backstory on their vision.
If there is one thing Erika Woelfel knows, it’s color.
For 20 years she’s been playing with color and building palettes, in graphic design, merchandising, color consulting, and for the last eight years, as the Vice President of Color and Creative Services at BEHR Paint.
She and her team design everything from the color card at the store and the home sets where the colors are showcased, to the actual paint colors you use, often test driving those colors in their own homes.
(Right now BEHR’s Polished Aqua lives in Woelfel’s kitchen where it’s paired with white cabinetry and earthtone granite surfaces.)
Out of all the questions I field about Vetrazzo’s recycled glass countertops - about color, texture, durability - it’s price that I’m most often asked.
Millefiori gets a lot of attention in our office. Not only is it a conversation starter but it is by far the most unique colors when it comes to recycled glass counter tops. There is nothing else like it on the market. So where does it come from and why is it so unique?
Vetrazzo® is a recycled glass surface comprised of 100% recycled glass. Vetrazzo is an exquisite surface material—truly a work of art—and it becomes the centerpiece for your home or project. So, what else makes it sparkle? A high glass content ( 85% by volume), expansive color palette, and story in every surface. From architectural to art glass, to beer bottles and jars, each mix is a signature blend of color and life that tells a story about you, too.
