Not just another pretty face

Author | Barbi Krass

Cambria, a player in the quartz solid surface category has found its way into the hearts of our clientele.

While Cambria IS certainly PRETTY, its’ attributes go beyond just looks. Granite and marble, we predict, will certainly not disappear from the marketplace, but the Cambria niche answers the needs of the client who wants predictability, low maintenance, economy of scale pricing and availability. What you see is what you get with no surprise fissures, veining, color variations, and discrepancies. Cambria offers consistency in pattern and coloration while still achieving the high end look of authentic stone.

When we were first introduced to Cambria as another solid surface product, we were skeptical, as we assumed we were going to find another FAUX stone surface, but Cambria stepped up to the plate with sophisticated design, current color palettes, and has expanded their offering exponentially in a short period of time.

For the client who wants the durability of stone without the busy pattern and range, Cambria has options. For the client who wants a dramatic look without the maintenance of natural stone, Cambria has options. The possibilities of edge treatments and surface textures rival natural stone in their variety as well. The practically maintenance free surface is an added bonus to be sure.

Our clients have been impressed with service, attention to detail and a beautiful product that stands the test of time. We expect the growth of the Cambria brand to be an important part of the solid surface marketplace.

The” feeling of living well” is the common thread our clientele share. Their design preference may be one of many styles, but the aesthetic is only part of a project’s goal. If we listen closely to a client’s vision, and bring experience and expertise to the table, then we have not only created award winning interiors, but we have given our client a space in which they love to live. We have been fortunate to collaborate with enthusiastic clientele who relish the feeling of living well.
