Metal countertops with a warmer cast

If your eyes like metal countertops for their cool, industrial look, but the rest of you isn’t quite sold on their functional properties, Brookyln, NY-based Wüd Furniture Design may have a solution to make you whole again. Its Pb•R encases metal in a clear epoxy resin, resulting in a material that has the hipness of metal yet is smooth to the touch and resistant to scratches, heat and stains.

Available in zinc, hot- and cold-rolled steel, blackened steel, stainless steel, lead, brass, copper and nickel, Pb•R can be used in kitchens and baths, as well as a variety of other residential and commercial applications, and can be custom made to any shape and size. Following are images of a kitchen and bath in Brooklyn where the material was specified for the countertop and vanity top, respectively. Incidentally, the company also supplied the cabinetry.
