Covering with natural stone - statuary & calacatta marble - are forever
Let's be honest and recognize that natural stone covering is the most beautiful.
Natural stone, well worked and installed is unique and forever.
Calacatta marble and Statuary marble are two ancient natural stones, which Michelangelo used for his works, but the greatest diffusion and application in architecture is quite recent, only a few decades, compared to other marbles such as Carrara White.
The Carrara white marble is extracted and known for a much longer time.
Nowadays there is a great demand for white marbles and great works of architecture around the world that use these marbles.

If you are the owner of the project and you are choosing a calacatta marble or marble statuary for yourself, or if you are the Architect - expert designer of natural stones, in either case, I hope this information is useful for you.
Of course, there are ceramics of high technological value that imitate very well the natural stones and these two marbles, calacatta, and statuary, but obviously, if you are reading this page, I suppose you do not want that, you want real natural stone, simply because you appreciate the natural products or because you feel and want the natural stone, especially a calacatta or statuary, currently considered two luxury marbles of high aesthetic value for a wall or floor covering and also for many other things if you wish and you can afford it.
The first consideration is precisely this: the calacatta marble and the statuary marble are especially today, two beautiful and luxurious natural stones with a high aesthetic value in the range of white marbles of Carrara, and their origin is the "Bella Italia".
They are very expensive because there is more demand than supply. The offer depends on the production in the quarries and it depends on natural factors that can not be totally controlled, you will not find too much offer, in the showrooms and deposits of the sellers of your country.
They can tell you that they will ask for them and they will take them there, and this is a possibility that you should evaluate.
On the other hand, the high demand for these marbles calacatta and statuary, from the last years to today, is because many architects and designers prefer white colors to other colors such as creams and beiges, where there are a greater world production and a much lower cost.
You may have all the money necessary to buy any of the luxury marbles you want, that is, money is not a problem for you and in this case, you have a great advantage to get and buy what you want but still, read on, please.
Or maybe you have an excellent taste and appreciate and want the best for you, but for this project, you do not have all the money in the world, and therefore you want to know if there is the possibility of getting a fantastic calacatta or statuary marble, with which you can cover your floors and walls, without having to make an exaggerated investment.
In other words, you want to know if there is a balanced solution that, on the one hand, takes into account the beauty and exclusivity of these luxury marbles and, at the same time, take into account the budget that you have at your disposal.
In mathematical terms, this is a very difficult equation to solve, because there are many variables that compose it. Here I leave some questions that will help you in the analysis and resolution of this equation that we can formulate in the following way:
"How to get and buy at the best price and quality, a calacatta or statuary marble, knowing that these two are luxury marbles, very exclusive, limited production, and very expensive.
These reflections are valid for a project with calacatta marble, statuary marble, and also for all marbles of extra quality, in the range of white marbles of Carrara, whether for a residential or commercial project.
Whom do I give the order to get the marbles?, What is the person or company more indicated to get these marbles ?.
How much time do I have in total and how long can I wait to get the slabs?
Knowing that marble is a natural resource, extracted from a mountain, not from a showroom. And knowing that once I find the marble slabs that satisfy all my tastes and needs, I must transport them to the workshop that will cut it to size and then install it definitively in the work.
What is the possibility of adapting (adjusting) the project to the slabs you find at a certain moment at a certain value? and not unlike ?, For example, I adapt the measurements of the pieces designed according to the measurements of the slabs.
In any project with many variables, when it is very difficult to reach the Optima solution, we have to sub-optimize in order to arrive at a final solution that will be very close to the optimum, so as not to idealize the solution in something too difficult to reach.
What is my maximum budget available for this project? I have a margin for maneuver?.
A very important factor is the speed of decision to not miss the opportunity, because if I find the marble calacatta, statuary, etc. that it satisfies in the best way to my project (equation) I must decide fast to avoid that somebody else buys it and I am left without it.
Recall here that we are buying a natural stone and that especially for these materials, there is no block equal to another, each block and slabs has a background color and a certain color of veins and design of its veins that make it precisely unique and so valuable.
A delay in making the decision, once you find the slabs, the slabs that satisfy almost 90 or 100% of my needs, I must decide, buy it now !!, otherwise I will have an opportunity cost if someone else arrives before me and buy it.
Many times between the architect-designer and the owner who decides, it takes a long time to decide, because you lose sight of the factor of "the opportunity", the producer who has your calacatta marble or your marble statuary, does not wait for you to decide, if another more determined customer arrives who buys the material, you can lose it and in this case, you should start the process again.
I say this from experience because to use a metaphor, it's as if the Project Owner and the Architect in their interactions, move at a speed, while the owner of the marble, who has here and now the slabs that you want, it moves at another speed and is offering its "magnificent and exclusive calacatta marble to more than one client, who may want to buy".
That is, if you want these marbles exclusive and scarce, on the one hand, you will have to have patience until you find what comes closest to your ideal solution, and on the other hand, when you have this opportunity at your fingertips, you must decide quickly, without hesitating not to lose the occasion.
It is hard work, for all of us, but I am sure that you will agree with me in saying the following:
The natural uniqueness of marble and other natural stones represented by its veins, renders the result of the composition original and unrepeatable, creating over the color of the background a plot of unparalleled beauty, which will last a lifetime.
There is no other type of material for coverings in the construction, with the beauty and the characteristics of the natural stone and therefore, all the daily work that we all do, from the extraction of the stone, the design, to the installation final, they are worth all the work, without any doubt.
