MEET ARABESCATO MARBLE
Arabescato is a type of marble that originates from Italy and is quarried in the Carrara area. It is considered a rare and highly sought-after marble.
Arabescato is extremely unique due to its soft white background coloring with bold dusty grey veining across the slabs in distinctive patterns. The perfect word to describe the veining found across the slabs of Arabescato would be “guilloche”; a pattern made by interlacing curved lines.
The two most well-known quarries that produce Arabescato are Corchia and Vagli Di Sotto, both in the Carrara region. The Arabescato marble quarried in Corchia is a heavily granulated marble with rounded veining patterns in a greyish-blue-like pattern. The Arabescto quarried in Vagli Di Soto has a straighter veining in comparison to the Corchia one and is a dark grey color with some hints of green.

Arabescato is commonly used for stunning applications as its veining allows the creation of different and unique patterns and shapes. These aesthetic factors are the primary reason why this particular marble is commonly used for statement pieces in kitchen countertops, walls, flooring panels, backsplashes, and bathrooms.
