When it comes to creating striking organic designs, nature reigns supreme. The classic and stunning beauty of Italian white marble is a perfect example, showing the passage of time and its mountain origin in its distinctive layers. But even nature can be improved. The newest addition to our Supernatural Collection, 5114 Calacatta Maximus takes the classic style of marble to the maximum, with the unparalleled durability for which Caesarstone is famous. Launching across North America for the first time, it’s a big, bold statement and a look that’s ready for its close-up.
Back in a Big Way
The magic of the marble look is due to the prominent Calacatta veining, which is seeing a revival in today’s trendiest residential and commercial spaces. With complex details revealing the story of the natural stone’s source in the Apuan Alps in the Carrara region of northern Tuscany, it’s a look that turns contemporary surfaces into strikingly graphic works of art. Calacatta Maximus improves on the trend, capturing all of the beauty of marble with the enhanced durability and superlative performance of Caesarstone.
Calacatta Maximus immediately impresses with oversized veining moving across the intricate terrain of the slab. Artfully designed with fluid veining to showcase the beauty of the stone, it enables you to utilize two slabs of the same stone and line up the edges to create a long, seamless look. This breakthrough in design and production means that, for the first time, slabs can be lined up to create a “super max” length for large islands, countertops, backsplashes, shower walls and feature walls – effectively creating a statement piece of art within any space. Adding stunning natural decoration and contrast to its pure white background, these soft greige veins are intensified by fine copper-gold outlines, perfectly replicating the mineral deposits found in nature. These prominent, directional strokes bring a dramatic and stylish look to kitchen countertops, backsplashes and islands alike.
With its strongly expressive and emotive appeal, Calacatta Maximus makes a bold statement about modern luxury, and takes a starring role in any space. However, every star needs a supporting cast. Brushed steel or chrome accessories add to the refined look, bringing a further touch of glamour to the scene. Complementary flooring helps to balance the room. Try oak parquet for a more understated approach, or concrete to introduce a bit of the industrial trend. Choosing black cabinetry and tiles will create a sharp contrast to the dramatic white base of Calacatta Maximus.
The striking white marble look of Calacatta Maximus can be part of a warmer kitchen environment when complemented by a natural wood like American walnut, a high-end alternative to white. To bring additional contrast to the room, consider color-blocking with vibrant feature walls or appliances in bright hues to avoid an overly white expanse.
The Finishing Touch
Looking for a dramatic, glossy look or something a little more subtle? Calacatta Maximus is stunning either way, with your choice of two available finish options. The Polished finish gives it a more defined, luxurious appearance that retains a brilliant gloss. The Natural finish showcases the organic beauty without the shine, with a subtle texture and a warm, sensory experience.
Marble Elegance Without the Headache
Unlike natural marble, Calacatta Maximus is nonporous, as are all Caesarstone surfaces. That means no waxes or chemical sealers are required. When it comes to maintenance, an environmentally-friendly cleaner or simple soap and water is virtually all you need to care for your Caesarstone surface and keep it looking beautiful for years to come.
