Stone Showcase: White Quartz and Marble throughout the home


So often we find ourselves moving with our customers’ projects not only from one room to the next room, but also from the old home to the new one.  Patti Adami and her husband Tom have worked with us for years, first starting with their home in Camp Hill.  Most recently they moved around the corner into a home that needed some updating and personalization.     Having had a variety of colored granite surfaces in their former home, the owners wanted something more sleek and minimalist, but also something to complement the theme of the expansive marble tile foyer, a focal point of the home.  During the photo shoot Patti had this to say about us, “I’ve always enjoyed working with Lesher’s.  Frank always has different ideas to consider.  The stone selection is outstanding and the pricing is always fair considering the degree of craftsmanship involved.”  Their new home is quite interesting in that it utilizes several of our products; quartz from Silestone, Cambria and Ceasarstone plus some chic marbles which are natural stone.

Here’s the foyer that existed in the home.

Starting in the kitchen you can see it’s contemporary in design with the cabinetry and the countertops.  The island is unique in that it has what we call a “waterfall”, which are the stone sides on the island that are mitered to the island countertop creating a smooth one piece look that wraps the base drawers of the island allowing the drawers on one side and seating on the other.  The quartz on the island is 3 cm on the countertop and then the sides are laminated with two 3 cm pieces being joined together making the sides thicker.


There are actually two different quartz products in this kitchen.  The island is made of a quartz by Silestone in a color called Ariel.  See the color close up from the supplier here.  It is white with some gray veining that simulates marble.




The perimeter countertop is made from quartz by Cambria in the color called White Cliff.  It is white in a more pure form.  The edge profile is called an eased edge profile which is typically used in a contemporary style kitchen.  The two quartz products look fantastic together.  You’d never know they were manufactured by two different quartz vendors,  Silestone and Cambria.


The powder room is right around the corner of  the kitchen area.  This marble vanity is unique in that it is free standing  and  the edge profile is mitered making it look like a thick slab of stone.    This marble is  more of a “white gray” with gray veining.


Not all marble is white and not all white marble looks the same.  There are many options to consider.  Some white marbles are more gray than white and some have tiny veins or very few large veins, etc.  You get the picture ;)


Stepping into the next room you see it’s wide open with an abundance of natural light highlighting the “star” of the room, the fireplace. This fireplace was strategically designed to hide what existed(painted brick and mortar) and show off the new marble with vibrant veining that flows where ever you look.  This marble is different than the powder room marble.  The fireplace is wrapped in Statuary marble which is more white with dark gray veining.


The quality is all in the details.  Knowing how to lay out the design on a slab of stone with crazy veining is just one key to the success of this design.



Realizing that lining up the veining matters in the finished look of the fireplace is just another detail that we know how to do very well.  Our years of experience combined with our desire to be experts make all the difference.  This is one of the things we call the  “Lesher Difference” .  You can read precisely what I mean here.



Moving into the master bathroom you can see Patti continued the classic marble look on the vanity top using another marble called Venatino marble with an eased edge profile.  This marble has a thickness of 2 cm.



Oh, and we cannot forget the Apple Martini quartz(discontinued color) in the laundry room. This is by Caesarstone another one of our many quartz products. This countertop color adds a splash of fun when tending to a mundane job :)
