Part of the Oceanic Collection, Cambria introduces the Roxwell and Oakmoor patterns to its natural quartz offerings. The bold designs call to mind rolling waves and driftwood with unique linear movements that are infused through the thickness of each slab, not printed or painted onto the material. Roxwell (shown) showcases smooth gray waves dappled with white, black, charcoal, and a touch of sparkle give the effect of surf on a beach. Oakmoor brings muted cream, tan, and caramel tones with an echo of graining for an aged wood look. cambriausa.com
