All of the quartz manufacturers have been looking to make good natural stone copies in lighter colors, as light granites tend to be porous and more vulnerable to staining. Most suppliers have attempted to recreate genuine stone as closely as possible, and some products have been very, very good.
What Cambria has done is to create stones that take their cue from the natural world, but without simply reproducing what is there. Cambria has life and design flair and fits perfectly into the kind of color and patterns that many of our customers are seeking.
The first stones that we have seen as full slabs have been the Berwyn and the Roxwell. Berwyn brings together green and cream tones, with a touch of sparkle, and a level of pattern reminiscent of some of the wilder green granites. Roxwell is very like a particularly linear Cosmic White, although with slightly more dark material. It also has some sparkle, though ‘sparkle’ in Cambria does not mean crude bling. These stones shine with a far more subtle and attractive look than generic mirror quartz. They are not cheap, but they are truly stunning.
