Calacatta Leon Quartz

Statement Calacatta Leon Quartz

If you love the look of classic Calacatta marble with its distinctive white background and attractive gray veining, you’re sure to appreciate the marriage of beauty and utility presented by marble-look quartz.

MSI offers designs that mimic the look of several Calacatta varieties. You’ll enjoy the distinctive appearance of marble, complete with the depth, dimension, and luminosity you expect, all in a package that includes exceptional strength and durability, not to mention low-maintenance appeal. 

When you want the timeless look of marble in a format designed to support a busy, modern lifestyle, Calacatta Leon quartz is just the ticket.

A Bold Addition to Your Living Spaces

This quartz design is both lovely and fierce, featuring a soft white background punctuated by chunky rivulets and delicate lines of dove-gray veining flowing across the surface. To say it serves up dynamic movement and drama is an understatement, but because of the soft, neutral hues, it still has the soothing appeal that many white marble varieties are prized for.

One aspect of Calacatta Leon quartz that’s sure to catch your eye is the addition of MSI’s patented LumaLuxe formulation. This innovative feature enhances the depth and dimension of every slab, creating a level of realism that makes these designs hard to distinguish from the natural stone varieties they mimic. 

LumaLuxe also adds the appearance of ethereal luminosity that marble is known for. As a result, this design not only elevates the elegance and sophistication of counter surfaces in your home, but it can also make for a striking statement piece when you choose features like a waterfall island or peninsula or a full-height backsplash.

Creating an Air of Classic Elegance

Marble, in general, is imbued with classic appeal. It’s the substance used to create timeless masterpieces like Michelangelo’s David and the Venus de Milo, but it also adorns some of the most beautiful structures in the world, from the Parthenon to the Taj Mahal to the White House.

It’s no wonder so many people want to include this gorgeous material in their interior design. But while you love the look of marble, you might be looking for counter surfaces that offer low maintenance and easy care. In this case, Calacatta Leon quartz is the perfect choice.

This surface will never require sealing; it’s highly resistant to staining, and it delivers the incredible beauty of popular Italian marble varieties. 

Calacatta Leon quartz offers a refined counterpoint to neutral cabinets in black or gray and looks absolutely stunning when set against trendy, saturated tones like cabinetry in navy, teal, forest green, or burgundy. It’s also the perfect transition between dark lower and light upper cabinets.

Manufactured Domestically

There is one more enticing selling point you may not be aware of when it comes to Q Premium Natural Quartz: It’s manufactured in the USA. MSI opened its massive production facility in Latta, South Carolina, in 2020 with the goal of becoming the largest engineered quartz manufacturing facility in North America.

Since then, this location has delivered quartz slabs via innovative technologies that create dimensional veining patterns and the appearance of luminosity to mimic natural stone characteristics. High-quality quartz from this facility is intended to benefit consumers who want to support domestic manufacturing while upgrading their home interiors.

Easy Maintenance Every Homeowner Will Love

In addition to resisting stains like a champ, MSI quartz offers practical benefits, including resistance to common damage like fading, scratching, etching, chipping, and cracking. This engineered surface is solid and nonporous, which means it’s not only food-safe but also resistant to the proliferation of bacteria, mold, and other microorganisms.

Easy to clean and maintain, quartz surfaces can be wiped down with a damp rag or a spritz of all-purpose cleaner. Even common staining agents and food splatter are easy to remove from quartz surfaces, and if you come up against tougher stains, scrubbing with a gentle cleanser like Bar Keepers Friend should return your countertops to pristine condition.
