A Dark Real Stone Worktop: The Natural Choice

Characterised by a lightly structured finish, making the dark material appear even more natural, the Lundhs Emerald Silk worktops create a smooth look that allows the exquisite crystals to shine through. The ideal surface for kitchen prep as well as flower arranging, Lundhs Emerald is the natural surface choice for the kitchen, delivering a stunning backdrop to both floral arrangements and the overall interior design of the property.

A Combination of Dark & Natural Materials

An old farmhouse dating back to 1860, the renovation to this property required a certain balance between introducing a modern aesthetic whilst honouring the building’s past. Carrying out the majority of the work themselves, the homeowners removed a fireplace and an old staircase and fitted a new window above the sink to create a beautifully open-plan, contemporary kitchen.

Opting for all black kitchen cabinetry from Ikea’s Kungsbacka range, the homeowners chose to keep the upper walls free of cupboards to ensure the feeling of spaciousness was maintained. Complemented by a brushed brass tap, light wood flooring, traditional wooden furniture pieces and the dark Lundhs Emerald worktops, the end result is a perfectly balanced, welcoming space.

The Versatility of Dark Natural Stone

One of the world’s most popular natural stones for kitchen worktops, Lundhs Emerald is the perfect marriage of stunning style and exceptional high quality. The darkest in the Lundhs Real Stone collection, Lundhs Emerald is a beautifully classic surface choice for the kitchen and is the visual embodiment of how natural light and materials can combine to produce an impressive visual masterpiece. Bringing both character and elegance to a space, the blend of the glistening blue feldspar crystals and the intense hue of the stone will sit just as perfectly in a stripped-back modern setting as a more traditional scheme.
