Our cabinet maker's countertop experts installed our kitchen counter today, and it looks gorgeous. We're using Richlite, a solid-surface material made from thin layers of paper bonded with phenolic resin. The Richlite has a dense, matte finish which will become even more lustrous once we apply the finish coat after its final sanding. The black surface works really well with both the bamboo cabinetry and the painted metal finishes of the windows, walls and structural frame.

Richlite makes their countertops from recycled cardboard and pulp from rapid-growing eucalyptus trees harvested from managed forests. Their resin has no added urea formaldehyde, so their counters don't emit carcinogens. The material is even certified Kosher, which we didn't even know was possible.
