The stone Artscut Laval Grigio is suggestive of the glitter of moonlight in the reflection of the water in the blackness of night.
The bone-white flows in like lava through the dark grey tones and black accents.
It is a beautiful stone that exudes drama and glitz, and it will enhance the decor of any home.
Pierre Honoré Lefere was born in 1948 in Pouilly-sur-Loire, France.
His father’s knowledge in architecture influenced his appreciation for the earth
and how it was used to create magnificent monuments.
Pierre had always been fond of his village’s mountains and hills, so when he saw limestones used for kitchens,
he thought how different mountains throughout France would vary the appearance of the kitchen.
His adventure began at home, with the establishment of a family company that began by installing limestone tiles.
Pierre progressed to granite and marble worktops after acquiring the necessary instruments.
Pierre began to go to neighboring settlements, where he discovered exquisite materials.
With this, Pierre founded Artscut, a firm that thrived because to
the range of natural colors in France.
Pierre’s stone selection spanned from granite to limestone.
However, when it came to the kitchen worktop, the ever-changing Artscut chose to adapt with it.
We couldn’t let go of our tradition while providing our clients with the toughest, most robust materials available (quartz).
Our vibrant hues helped to shape our firm. So, with the assistance of skilled engineers,
we began sculpting quartz materials to resemble the stones that inspired Pierre.
This is how we came up with our color palette.
Our job has taken us from our home in France to Australia and the United Kingdom.
With approximately 2,800 employees worldwide and 26 manufacturing lines.
Because of our success, we have earned a reputation as forerunners in stone innovation
and the combination of classic and modern hues.
Grey, sometimes called gray, is a color that is halfway between black and white.
It is a neutral or achromatic color, which meaning “without color,” because it may be made up of black and white.
It features a hazy sky, ash, and lead look.
A polished finish has a glossy surface that reflects light and draws attention to the stone’s color and veins.
This implies that the intricacies, colors, tints, and vein structure of the stone stand out more, emphasizing the stone’s inherent qualities.
Because it reflects light and appears more saturated, a high-polish treatment will bring out the stone’s inherent color to its maximum potential.
A sharpened finish This matte or flat finish has a
smooth surface but little to no shine and is
created when the finishing process is
stopped before the granite is polished.
Its velvety texture and softer appearance provide a more informal,
warm atmosphere, and because the color is less vibrant than a polished finish,
it is more suited for lighter hues, while it is more visible on black granite.
You may also pick from other subtypes of honed granite with differing degrees of honing,
such as diamond smooth, machine smooth, satin, velvet,
and gold finishes.
Marble has a smooth, velvety look with a variety of veining patterns that range from subtle to strong and dramatic.
While white is the most common color in marble, it is also available in a range of different colors.
Marble is a metamorphic rock made up of recrystallized carbonate minerals,
the most common of which being calcite or dolomite.
There are certain exceptions to the rule that marble is not foliated.
The term “marble” refers to metamorphosed limestone in geology, but it is also
used in stonemasonry to refer to unmetamorphosed limestone.
Marble is still the top option for many homeowners when it comes to kitchen countertops.
It’s no wonder that marble countertops and backsplashes are
so popular—the material has a long history of garnering admirers.
According to Russell Groves, the lead architect behind Groves & Co.,
marble is a natural material with a wide range of variations depending on
which species you choose and how it’s cut.
It produces a really attractive natural pattern, which is not
found in many manufactured materials.
