It’s Like Marble … But Better! It’s Cambria.
Countertops have come a long way due to its old, fragile contingencies. Marble is a stunning surface, don’t get us wrong, however it unfortunately is not recommended for a kitchen countertop that will be used day after day and wear down.
Marble is a rather soft stone that is prone to scratching, cracking, staining and chipping. Thus, making it a very unpractical surface for your kitchen or bathroom countertop. If you live a lavish life and often find that these damages will not occur, we root you on and say go after that beautiful marble stone you’ve always dreamt of! However, we definitely recommend to our customers who love the look of marble to opt for something more durable – marble-looking quartz!
Quartz is a manufactured stone that is extremely durable (more so than granite) and is resistant to heat damage, scratching, chipping, staining, etc. Therefore, it is a fantastic alternative for your kitchen countertops AND with the trend of time, quartz has now replicated the beautiful look of marble that we all love so you can now receive both beauty and practicality all in one!
This year, Cambria released 20 new designs for 2020 that each resemble a stunning and unique composition, a lot of which appears like the features you would find in marble materials. Here’s a few of our favorites:
What do you think of when you think of marble countertops? Let us guess … a white backdrop of high gloss and shine, with dainty and elegant marbling designs that vary from light grey to dark? Mhm, us too! And Cambria’s Colton is exactly that!

In addition to the marble-look, Cambria’s new product line also features unique designs such as the Brittanicca Block and Buxton that offer a different look and feel than the rest of the product offerings within this collection.
The Brittanicca Block is a rugged surface that appears both elegant and worn. Its light hue makes it sleek and classy, but the intriguing mosaic design adds spunk and diversity. The horizontal blocks provide a modern farmhouse vibe and feel, as it resembles a lot like a natural, man-made wooden table or countertop.
Buxton is a very creamy surface that entails faint design and speckles that resemble a concrete-like material. This surface is perfect for a contemporary style home that incorporates natural lighting, greenery, and brass accessories.
