Contrast is a fundamental principle of design

Using two contrasting textures or patterns adds visual interest to more easily catch the eye.

This works best when the two contrasting elements are used in close proximity to each other. In these photos from Infinity Porcelain, the neutral base white of Absolute White contrasts beautifully with the natural stone look of Milan Stone.



Inspired by the coveted Statuario marble of Italy, Infinity Porcelain – Classic Statuario captures the timeless allure of this striking, bold pattern. And because it’s porcelain, this beautiful surface is non-absorbent and food-safe, resistant to heat and frost, and requires very little maintenance to keep looking it’s best.
