Exclusive to the Italian Porphyry Company – a range of stunning kitchen worktops in Porphyry – something the neighbour’s definitely won’t have!
Italian PORPHYRY is renowned for its durability. Due to its fine grain composition and treatment, porphyry doesn’t absorb water which makes it ideal for use in a tough kitchen environment. Its hardness, strength in bending and compression, scratch, heat and chemicals resistance (it comes from volcanic activity after all) all add to its longevity. Due to its high compression breaking point, porphyry resists wear which means that kitchen worktops made from Italian Porphyry don’t lose their finish.
Italian PORPHYRY is available in seven eye-catching colours that range through blues and greys, to greens, browns, reds and purples. Our ‘Viola’ colour porphyry similar to the deep purple the ancient Romans used to covet.
Many Finishes are also available including polished, honed, flamed and brushed as well as new kinds of edging finishes. Because porphyry is extensively worked by hand, our worktops can be supplied with a special hand chiselled edge finish that creates a unique rustic feature within the aesthetics of your kitchen.
