Fresh designs from Wilsonart® HPL offer luxury countertops at a common-sense price point. Trends suggest homes are evolving into multi-use spaces with fewer boundaries and more potential for calming serenity. Furthermore, residential spaces are becoming more functional, adaptive and rejuvenating. With this in mind, the art of balanced design is the inspiration for this Wilsonart HPL launch. From muted marble with low-contrast veining to warm concrete with industrial textures, eight new designs offer the look and performance of high-end stones, without the maintenance or cost.
- Borghini Marble (5062-38) - A white marble with large-scale, directional warm rust to charcoal grey veining features.
- Aluma Marble (5067K-15) - A white textured marble with refined, directional warm bronze veining.
- Pietra Viva (5063K-22) - A neutral warm grey textured marble stone with multi-directional, thin intersecting white veins.
- Roca Bosco (5062-38) - A mid-tone, warm grey and richly textured marble with cream and bronze veining accents.
- Crystal Quartzite (5068K-22) - A white quartzite stone with medium-scaled, organic directional movement and accents of warm and cool quartz crystals.
- Terrena Soapstone (5059K-15) - A charcoal grey soapstone with a vibrant mix of cool blue and golden color vein accents.
- Midtown Concrete (5065K-22) - A distressed concrete structure that features surface cracking and fine textural particulate attributes in a light, neutral grey coloration.
- Midnight Carnival (5061K-15) - A dense, dark taupe granite structure featuring large-scale black, cream and grey accents.
These latest designs are elevated by low sheens and detailed finishes — including the new premium Fieldstone (-15) finish — that emphasize the look and feel of natural stone. Taking affordable luxury to the next level, the new Wilsonart HPL designs are also available with decorative edge options that eliminate the brown line traditionally seen in laminate countertops and provide a more polished look.
Wilsonart HPL is an excellent low-maintenance solution for both residential and commercial applications, and features AEON™ Technology. The advantage of AEON is that it dramatically outperforms traditional laminate on wear resistance, as well as scratch, scuff and mar resistance, and is more durable than competitive laminates by a factor of three times with similar finishes — meaning the surface keeps its good looks and performs longer.

“Whatever your vision, Wilsonart delivers with surfaces you love and service you can count on. Our latest designs offer finishes and sustainable options that are both beautiful and attainable,” added Mikesell.
