Ceramique Internationale sets new marble trend with dramatic Capraia collection

September 2021

Ceramique Internationale has taken the white marble tile trend to the next level with the launch of the visually stunning Capraia range.

Inspired by the rare, precious marble quarried from the Apuan Alps in Italy’s beautiful North Tuscan landscape, Capraia offsets heavy veining in commanding hues ranging from dark grey and brown to distinctive black, against an elegant white background in a unique mat finish.

Available in 300 by 600mm and 600 by 600mm, as well as 600 by 1,200mm to special order, Capraia has the gravitas to perfectly complement on-trend black shower cubicles and accessories, so is an ideal choice for bathrooms and wetrooms. But its subtle matt finish can also provide a visually compelling backdrop for kitchens, hallways, fireplaces and conservatories.

Director of Ceramique Internationale, Peter Vann, said: “White marble is undoubtedly the style of the moment and the striking heavy veining and mat finish of Capraia adds a dynamic new dimension to this trend.”

“Elegance and sophistication are the hallmarks of the marble that has inspired this collection, from Italian manufacturer Marazzi.  The Apuan Alps and their famous white marble quarries provided the perfect location for a car chase in the James Bond movie Quantum of Solace.”

“Marble quarried from the Apuan Alps has been a key architectural feature since ancient times but modern printing technology means we can achieve this classical look in sustainable porcelain,” added Vann.
