28 • February 2018 NEWS SCOPE VENEER STONE The producer that pioneered the manufactured stone veneer category arrived at the National Association of Home Builders International Builders' Show 2018 with a new Sculpted Ashlar profile in three unique color variations. The veneer unit's distinctive form is precision engineered to exhibit consistent joint lines within a unique, dimen- sional format that will complement a variety of regional styles. The profile debuts in three versatile colors: Silver Shore (light tones of green and grey), Grouse (medium tones of tan and brown) and Ferrous (dark tones of carbon blue, charcoal and copper). In addition to Sculpted Ashlar, the producer showed attendees at the Orlando gathering the Pro-Fit Terrain Ledgestone, the first precast concrete veneer product to have received National Green Building Certification. "Sculpted Ashlar represents the perfect intersection between nature and precision with a bold interplay between rounded ledge- stone features and more linear forms," says Cultured Stone Product Development and Area Sales Manager Emily Bonilla. "In showcasing our newest profile alongside Pro-Fit Terrain Ledgestone, we are excited to demonstrate the sophistication and innovation that have made Cultured Stone a leader in the market since its inception." Cultured Stone sculpts new Ashlar series veneer units Shown here in two of four initial colors, Artic and Trek, the Pro-Fit Terrain Ledgestone blends fine textures and patterns, while providing contemporary design options that meet Greenguard Gold Certification standards. ELDORADO STONE MIXES FIVE NEW VENEER COLORS Eldorado Stone unveiled five new color pal- ettes across four of its most popular brick and stone profiles last month at the Inter- national Builders' Show 2018. Inspiring and versatile new color options expand what the producer calls "the breadth of textural and tonal expression for the popular Modern Col- lection," which debuted during IBS 2016. "We listen to the architectural and design community because we're passionate about providing the most elevated colors and tex- tures possible in order to shape meaningful spaces," says Eldorado Stone Director of Mar- keting Sarah Lograsso. "Every new step we take represents a deliberate and purposeful response to the input we've received from our network of specifiers and artisans." With touches of ivory and gray over bright earth tones in a meticulously lay- ered, mosaic-like pattern, Latigo is one of five color palettes for TundraBrick (shown here) and three other series.
