Calacatta Destino is part of Artscut’s new luxury range and is a brand new addition for Spring 2022. Replicating and blending the looks of various Calacatta marbles, such as Calacatta Borghini, Calacatta Oro, Calacatta Betogli and Arabescato Corchia, this piece is an elevation of the Calacatta marble range that Artscut already offered.
With thunderous grey veins storming through the soft white of the stone, this quartz stone worktop perfectly emulates the regal luxury of bold Italian marbles whilst maintaining the invaluable practical nature that quartz worktops offer. Marble, although an intensely beautiful stone, is simply not able to withstand the tests of a modern lifestyle and is vulnerable to wear and tear from the chemicals in cleaning products and acidic ingredients in food items. This means that although it is much sought after in terms of its look, it is simply not practical for a kitchen worktop.
This is where quartz stone comes in. Being made up of 93% natural quartz and 7% resin, this material is extremely durable and hard-wearing. It has very stain resistant and scratch resistant properties and stands the daily wear that you require from a worktop. It is even resistant to staining from highly pigmented liquids and materials such as red wine, turmeric and other spices.
Marble has dominated the trends in the kitchen and interior design space over the past few decades, but marble as décor is something that dates back for many centuries and millenniums. The beauty of Artscut Calacatta Destino is how it demonstrates how far technology has developed in the engineered stone space with the level of likeness of natural marble that it is able to achieve. When seeing this stone, people may be forgiven for thinking that this is indeed a natural marble. The veins that contour the stone are blended into the stone with depth and intricacy that mark the luxury nature of this stone.
If you are looking for a white marble style quartz worktop with thick grey veining, then Artscut Calacatta Destino could be the affordable luxury quartz worktop option for you.
