Vera Wang Venato Imperial
Venato Marble from Italy is a luscious white and grey marble perfect for modern and classic tastes. Marble is created from limestone or dolomite rock which has recrystalised. The characteristic veins are created by impurities in the limestone such as clay or silt which are present when the limestone recrystalises. The resulting marble rock is extremely hard and versatile. It can be polished, precision cut and sculptured. While refurbishing her New York Kitchen Vera Wang travelled to Italy in search of the perfect marble to complete her design. She travelled to a number of quarries and was captivated by the diversity and beauty of this impressive material. On her return, she decided to recreate the stones unique pattern on a dinner service which could be enjoyed and used every day.
