Calacatta Marble is one such marble – a gorgeous, high-end natural stone desirable for its distinctive look and precious rarity for a range of applications.
Calacatta Marble is distinctive with its thick, bold veining. Rather than the plentiful soft veins of a marble like Carrara, Calacatta’s hallmark is fewer but more dramatic and unstructured veins. Overall the color has a global appeal with designers and architects due to its soothing white background, veining, and color tone. (The whiter the background, the more expensive and desirable these marbles get.) The economy of Calacatta Marble’s veining is also suited to bookmatched installations which is less effective with other marbles that may have so many fine veins that there is no distinctive pattern to manipulate into a design.
The marble first brought to us by Michelangelo, Calacatta Marble is a luxury stone; therefore, it is often utilized in very visible areas. For example, Calacatta Marble Flooring is popular for entry ways in corporate offices. However, Calacatta Marble Slabs and tiles are recommended for a variety of indoor applications where elegance is desired, including in the kitchen as countertops and backsplashes. Calacatta Marble Countertops are found both in executive boardrooms as well as today’s designer homes.
