It’s All About That Quartz!


Introduced nearly three decades ago, quartz is kind of like a fine wine if you truly think about it, “only gets finer with time.” OK! We really couldn’t resist making that comment…..because it’s true!

When first introduced to the market, quartz was known for its durability, but now it’s more recognized for its chameleon like ability to mimic the natural beauty of Marble, Granite and/or Limestone. Many will argue that nothing can imitate natural stone (and they are right) yet we have to say that Quartz comes pretty darn close.

What is Quartz?

Quartz is a man made engineered stone comprised of quartz, granite and/or recycled glass that’s held together with a pigmented binder. It’s nonporous, meaning it’s highly stain, heat and scratch resistant. There is no need to seal it or use special cleaners, soap and water will simply do the trick. In simpler words, Quartz is super low maintenance and basically indestructible, just what today’s busy homeowners are looking for.

Find the right Quartz for you!

Since individual tastes vary significantly, so do your Quartz options. Whether your personal style is traditional, modern, industrial chic or transitional there is a right Quartz out there for you. While Natural Stone is limited to Earth’s natural color pallet, Quartz is not. With Quartz, you can go as white and neutral as you like OR as bright and funky as your feeling.

Finishes do matter!

Did you know that Diresco Belgian Quartz, which is exclusive in the Midwest to T&M, offers Quartz in 3 finishes, Velvet, Anticato and Polished ?  I mean that is huge, adding a different finish to your countertop or backsplash can transform the feel of the entire look.




Velvet: Velvet surfaces provide a matte or non-reflective finish that is much softer to the eye and touch. The luxurious look and feel of our velvet finish evokes a relaxed and natural feel.








Polished: Polished surfaces provide a radiant finish with an impeccable linear reflection that presents a depth and sophistication to the material.Due to our use of optical grade silica sand, our polished surfaces provide an unmatched brilliance.






Anticato: Anticato surfaces provide a slightly textured finish for individuals wanting a non-uniform surface. Anticato is a muted textured finish that will provide an additional characteristic to your design space.




So now not only do you know everything that you need to about Quartz,  you are the biggest fan ever, right!?!

Explore the Luxury of Viareggio

Known as the “Pearl of the Tyrrhenian Sea,” Viareggio is an alluring and sophisticated city located in northern Tuscany. The silky, sandy beaches offer breathtaking views of the Apuan Alps, home to the most beautiful white marble in the world. Part of Viareggio’s appeal is its rich history and prestige, making this seaside resort one of the most desired places to visit.

The prestige surrounding this city is due in large part to its shipbuilding industry. The most luxurious cruising yachts that sail the seas of the entire world were launched from the shipyards of Viareggio. It is here that you will find some of the most skilled and talented craftsmen of these ships. The same craftsmen that, in the earlier years of the now famed Carnival of Viareggio, played a huge role in the creation of the floats.

The city’s rich history continues today with the renowned Carnival of Viareggio. This yearly celebration, dating back to 1873, is given by a parade of floats and masks depicting caricatures of popular people. The finest and most magnificent parade has brought and continues to bring different cultures and people together.

Terrazzo & Marble invites you to be a part of history and explore the luxury of Viareggio…
