From selection to execution The Quarry Gallery is your one-stop solution.
We at The Quarry believe in empowering our clients to make a choice of their own. And the right one!
TIP 1: FIND OUT THE ORIGIN
Marble, granite and onyx come from different areas across the world and the origin plays a significant role in determining the quality of the stone. It is also very fascinating to know where your chosen slab came from and its history. If you are looking for white marble like the Carrara, Statuario, Bianco Lasa, you have to go no further than The Quarry Gallery. Each slab is handpicked by the Chief Curator and a team of experts. It is then cut to the world standard 20mm thickness and polished by generations of experienced Italian craftsmen, in Italy.
TIP 2: UNDERSTAND YOUR TASTE
Initially, you can look at various marble colours, patterns and types that are available in the market. Find out what are your likes and dislikes. But make sure to keep an open mind as you look at several marble slabs. Are you more inclined towards heavy veins or something lighter? Do you want a slab that is consistent throughout or one that has striking differences? Remember, the marble colour and texture you choose will be a part of your decor for years. Understanding what you like will guide you through the process with ease and clarity. The Quarry Curators can take you on a personalised tour of the 12,500 sq. ft. gallery and take you through our handpicked collection of over 33 marble colours.
TIP 3: TEXTURE AND FINISHES
The next big thing that ensures the beauty of a natural stone is the texture and finish. These features make each stone look distinct. Texture ranges from roughly fragmented to fine-grained and smooth. The Quarry offers a wide range of finishes from polished, lether, honed, hydro and more. Both havea major impact on the aesthetics and ambience of a space.
TIP 4: WATCHOUT FOR DAMAGES
While marble and granite are some of the hardest substances known to man, they are affected by shifting weight, heat and sudden impact- that causes natural fissures. Fissure is a part of the natural beauty of the stone that sometimes reveals a layer underneath. Whereas, a crack is thin but expands over time and may cause structural issues and instability. They begin as tiny hairline cracks that may eventually break off. If you see a marble slab with cracks, it may have been mishandled or even dropped.
The Quarry has invested in technology to offer you innovations like the bacteria resistant BactoFinish and QVAC - a special ultra-strengthening technology to increase the durability and longevity of your chosen white marble slab.
TIP 5: TRUST YOUR INSTINCTS
Go with what feels right while choosing a marble slab for your home. Admire the details and overall look of the stone. After making sure that its properties are suitable for your application, ifa marble appeals to you for a specific reason- we say go with it and there’s no reason to doubt that it’s the right piece. Finding beautiful marble slabs is easy but finding one that touches your heart is rare and special.
