The benefits of Corian

Corian for furniture

With a smooth touch, solid feel and timeless colour palette, the material Corian has been used by FrancoCrea for more than a decade to create refined luxury furniture as beautiful as it is durable.

Corian Solid Surface is a dynamite high performing material that has proven itself to be remarkably durable and resilient since its introduction in 1967. Time and again Corian solid surface has proven its ability to withstand the forces of nature as well as it does a home filled with friends and family. Designed specifically to hold up across seasons and generations providing comfort with a 10-year material guarantee.

Built to withstand everyday living, colours and patterns run through the entire thickness of the material and cannot wear away or delaminate over time. Couple that with its non-porous surface that prevents stains from taking hold. With low maintenance cleaning, there’s peace of mind the material does not promote the growth of mould, mildew and bacteria. Composed of 1/3 resin and 2/3 natural minerals, Corian surfaces are 100% recyclable and environmentally friendly being nontoxic, nonallergenic and credited with GREENGUARD GOLD Certification. A wonderfully renewable material, it can be easily rebuffed in the convenience of your own home every 5 years to revive your designer furniture to as new condition providing superior value in the long term.

Corian is a hidden treasure being embraced by innovative furniture designers.
