Hard Beauties: Cambria Surfaces at 2013 KBIS

Cambria natural stone materials bathroom counter | The Decorating Diva, LLCThough several of the Cambria vignettes at the 2013 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show were styled in a more traditional style than is my liking, and to be honest, I had a difficult time overcoming their less than stellar choice of wall coverings, I was able to overlook those style transgressions and focus on Cambria’s beautiful natural stone materials. Their stone products are truly stunning natural beauties, and I would have liked to see them showcased in a setting more befitting of their beauty.

Retro Bar topped with Torquay by Cambria | The Decorating Diva, LLCI enjoyed viewing the natural surface materials used in different fashions – not just as a bath or kitchen product. In the photo above – Cambria’s Torquay is used as a counter top on a retro-style cabinet bar. In the photo below – Cambria’s Hollinsbrook quartz used as a tabletop surface to create an expressive and rich dining experience.
