I first spotted porcelain slab countertops in a European cabinet showroom in West Hollywood, either in 2009 or 2010. I didn’t know what they were, but I loved the sleek look. Fast forward to my first European trade show, LivingKitchen, in January 2011 and I spotted more of them around the show floor. In fact, one manufacturer had a slab set up on a stand and let visitors stand and even jump on it. I did. It didn’t break. I was impressed! I included them in my first and second books. They’ll definitely show up in my third, as well!
