ABOUT THIS PROJECT
This breathtaking home, designed by our friends at Studio Gild, features Aria’s Calacatta Gold Borghini Extra marble in the bright and modern kitchen. Surrounded by fluffy green plants and luxurious gold accents, this space is a treasure to behold, as was an absolute honor to complete.

Borghini is the creme de la creme of marbles. It is the most exclusive, sought after type of marble in the world. One of the reasons it is so rare and highly sought after is because it is mined very infrequently. Anywhere from 1-2 blocks per week – roughly 50-60 slabs per block on average – whereas other larger quarries mine a lot more. For comparison sake, Bianco Carrara marble quarries mine 100 plus blocks of Carrara a week (all combined). Therefore, Borghini is a lot less common, making it very unique.
