Project featuring Fieldstone from the Desert Collection – Design by Kimberley Giancaterino Interiors
“Form follows function,” renowned architect Louis Sullivan declared, and it’s often vastly misunderstood when it comes to interior design. When I choose a brand to work with, there are some key elements I always look for to ensure I’m not just working with a brand that’s all aesthetics but no function. Cambria Quartz encompasses just that.
For starters, Cambria is a company that has over 15 years of experience in the quartz business. They first opened in Minnesota where they started as a tile manufacturer and vowed to commit to product innovation, first-class customer service, and leading-edge quality control. From then on, they’ve developed more and more designs. They grew to be named #4 on Entrepreneur magazine’s “Hot 400” list and this eventually led them to expand across the border to Toronto.
Cambria’s attention to detail has always resonated and aligned with me. The strength and durability of their products go beyond that of granite and marble. It’s less likely to scratch, chip or stain. It is non-porous and non-absorbent which is what you need to protect against harmful bacteria being trapped in the material. The fact that it’s less likely to scratch or stain brings peace of mind for a healthy, functioning home.
A second plus is that maintenance is super easy. You simply clean the surface with warm water and, what I like to use, is a soft cloth with a bit of mild dish soap. The best part is that Cambria quartz will always retain it’s beautiful finish without the need for any sealing and/or polishing. This is usually required for granite and marble. If you want to look deeper into maintaining your Cambria products, they also provide a list of approved cleaners on their website!
Last but not least, Cambria is environmentally conscious. In a world where we’re advocating for environmental transparency and responsibility, I find this one of my top motivators for choosing Cambria. Not only will I have peace of mind with the reasons I’ve listed above, I will also have peace of mind knowing the brand I choose is doing their part for the environment. They have initiatives in their manufacturing and mining. During processing, all water is recycled within their fabrication shops like their Bolton, Ontario location.
True to their word, Cambria has created a vast and extremely stunning selection of designs that are suitable for any project. They are reliable and their customer service is one of the best in the industry. The same amount of quality is poured into each and every product they have produced. If you don’t believe me, take a look for yourself!
