LE SUEUR, Minn., May 5, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cambria, the only American company in the quartz surfaces business, announced today it is launching 12 new colors this spring, bringing the company's total color palette to almost 100. This comes on the heels of a major 21 color launch last fall, 2010. The new designs feature revolutionary new looks for quartz.

Influenced by the natural movement of water over stone, Cambria presents the WaterstoneCollection.  These trendsetting looks range from neutral to vibrant tones that are reminiscent of granite and marble, yet offer the benefits of Cambria, such as greater strength than granite or marble, and its maintenance-free non-porous surface.

"Cambria strives to lead the industry in style and innovation as it relates to stone surfaces, and this, our latest collection, is in that spirit," said Marty Davis, Cambria's President and CEO.  "We are pleased and excited to provide our partners and consumers never before seen looks in the quartz category."

"We relentlessly push the technology limits to give homeowners the eternal beauty of stone with all the performance benefits of Cambria," said Summer Kath, Director of Brand.  "Just months after we launched the Cambrian Collection, we had a breakthrough discovery now seen in the Waterstone Collection.  Our entrepreneurial drive gave us the freedom and ingenuity to create colors that seemed impossible for quartz.  Our game-changing colors will send shock waves through the industry."

Each new color boasts the names of locations in Wales and England, which are the inspiration for the spectrum of Cambria colors.  For example, Buckingham, named for the London palace that is home to the British Monarchy, is rich and versatile with just enough unexpected flare of browns, golds and grays.  Torquay, a posh, continental feel much like the English Riviera town itself, has a pure milky nature that is complemented by swirls of gray and tan.  And Braemar, pebble-like and sporadic like the banks of the River Dee which runs through the most mountainous village of Braemar in the UK, contains gray, black and cream quartz crystals that create a playful, contemporary mix.

Cambria will now offer almost 100 colors, the largest and most exceptional selection of quartz surfaces in the world.  To view Cambria's colors, visit www.CambriaUSA.com or visit a local independent kitchen and bath dealer, which can be identified at www.CambriaUSA.com/dealer-locator .

Cambria is a stain resistant, nonporous natural quartz surface that is harder, stronger and easier to care for than other stone surfaces because it does not require sealing with chemical-based conditioners, polishers or wax.  Cambria is committed to environmentally friendly business practices.
