Our Carrara marble has unique characteristics: only thanks to the craftsmanship is transformed into pieces of furniture that combine elegance and refinement, and that give your home that inimitable touch.
There are seven main varieties of marble: the White, the Statuario, the Venato, the Arabescato, the Calacatta, the Bardiglio and the Paonazzo. All of these types are produced by the Zona Mossa quarry and the Poggio Silvestre quarry.
Today we recommend some combinations for your home: our furnishing accessories perfectly represent our passion for this unique and delicate material.
Calacatta marble has creamy yellow veins, on a background paste that can vary from white to ivory. The coloration of the veins is due to the presence, in the texture of the rock, of very small crystals of white mica or muscovite. This variety of marble is considered an extremely precious marble, whose availability is rather limited. One of the most suitable combinations involves the use of natural wood such as oak or Canaletto Walnut.
Imagine having in your kitchen a corner dedicated to special preparations that will amaze the family, such as our mortar, or the cutting boards, or the small and pretty bowls for aperitifs.
Bardiglio marble is composed of a grey coloured paste. This coloration is given by the widespread presence, in the texture of the rock, of impurities, that is very fine crystals of pyrite. This type of marble is mainly used for the creation of precious floors and coverings, especially for domestic use thanks to its resistance to atmospheric agents.
With this variety of marble you can create combinations with the light-dark, for example with a light wood such as fir or pine. For an environment furnished with this gradation of colors, the furnishing elements with gold, rose gold, silver and chrome details favor the creation of an accurate and fine atmosphere.
Think for example of our bathroom beauty set, which combines elegance and robustness, for a neat and pleasant environment.
The Paonazzo variant is an extremely valuable marble; its peculiarity lies in the fine-grained lithotype of ivory color, sometimes towards beige and purplish red. The veins mark the material in a discontinuous and irregular way, with shades that vary from black to purple. The material is further coloured by more yellowish areas, caused by the presence of limonitic oxides and hematite.
This variety is perfect in an environment such as the living room, where you can play with shades of color that reflect the same veins of marble. The ideal is to find them in accessories such as our lamps or vases, both able to give the right light to the environment.
