Take it for Granite: Exotic Countertops Take Center Stage

October 07, 2016

One of the most exciting characteristics of granite countertops is that they are a natural material that comes from all corners of the globe. Granite has many beautiful color variations and patterns, and there are plenty of options to choose from to suit a variety of tastes. MSI has embraced the trend of bold, colorful countertops by introducing a portfolio of exotic granite colors. 

Featured: African Ivory

African Ivory polished granite slabs are a fine blend of swirling creams and sepias with grey and jet black accents. This elegant granite comes from Namibia and is well suited for a variety of interior and exterior applications. The neutral color palette of African Ivory makes a statement while blending in with a wide range of design styles and decors. 

Featured: Aruba Dream

For a bold, eye-catching granite, check out MSI’s Aruba Dream. An alabaster background is intersected with deep, jet-colored veins that bleed out into a copper wash for a look that is both sophisticated and stunning. The dense veining and movement of this Brazilian granite makes it ideal not only for granite countertops but also large-scale flooring and wall applications. 

Featured: Del Mare

Another exciting granite option from Brazil, Del Mare granite slabs feature a cool green granite background with darker green veins. Perfect for a hint of soothing spa-like color indoors, or to blend in with the natural surroundings in outdoor projects, Del Mare granite is a beautiful choice for your next remodel. 

Featured: Dynamic Blue

Dynamic Blue may be MSI’s most striking granite color selection for those looking to make an impact. Hues of ocean-blue ripple throughout with veins of lighter blue accents in this granite from India. Dynamic Blue countertops can be dressed up with traditional dark wood cabinets, or modernized with white cabinets and stainless steel hardware for a clean, high-contrast look. 

Featured: Typhoon Bordeaux

Rich golds and beige tones with deep golden veining combine to form our last exotic granite selection, Typhoon Bordeaux from Brazil. This granite slab is tasteful and refined, yet manages to make an impressive impact. Use it with confidence outside (even in freezing climates!), or for a wide range of interior surfaces, Typhoon Bordeaux granite makes a statement in your home without being overdone.
