Has anyone used Roxx Stone for their bench tops?

As above. I've seen this stuff around, but it hasn't worked out any better in pricing, then a 20mm thick top. It's really designed to sleeve over existing Joinery.

White Shimmer would likely be too cool for an Antique White, maybe try either Snow, Osprey or Organic White instead as they should be a better colour match.

Dulux White on White looks good with Calcutta as its more stark and blue/grey undertones. Natural white is more of a warm colour which would suit the osprey.
