Azul Bahia Granite: A touch of the tropics in the dead of winter

 Azul Bahia granite makes a stunning focal point in this Boston kitchen by Archia Homes in Duxbury, Ma.  

As far as New England winters go, this year we can’t really complain much—yet. But who knows what Mother Nature has in store for us over the next month or so? Either way, we could all use an infusion of tropical warmth. Azul Bahia granite provides just that! 

Azul Bahia is a semi-precious stone that’s produced from a bedrock quarry in Bahia, Brazil. It’s a rich blue, often close to navy, which calls to mind the tranquil beauty of the sea. Some slabs feature hints of green in the background, though just like any natural stone, the variety is wide.

This award-winning, contemporary kitchen design by Reico Kitchen & Bath features a multi-tiered island in beautiful Azul Bahia

In the scheme of granites, Azul Bahia is a rare and exclusive option that is highly prized. In fact, celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse is even reported to have an Azul Bahia granite countertop on his home kitchen island. (Check it out, shown in this article from Veranda).

Also known as Blue Bahia or Brazilian Blue, Azul Bahia is a coveted material in both commercial and residential interiors. The stone makes wonderful walls and fantastic floors as well as beautiful blacksplashes, countertops, fireplaces, tub surrounds, showers, and vanities. 

Azul Bahia,, paired with crisp white cabinetry, is very New England…nautical and sophisticated. As a design anchor, dark blue is an elegant and refined color. Azul Bahia sells quite well here at Marble & Granite, Inc.. We are constantly looking for the very best Azul Bahia in the marketplace, in terms of blue and balance. Due to the nature of the stone, we reject many offers in order to only stock the best of the best. For example, we don’t accept slabs that have brown or grey blotches, or smaller slabs. We pay a premium to get the very best slabs, and we inspect each one individually. 

Are you looking for your own slice of paradise? We can help! Visit Marble & Granite, Inc. at either of our two New England locations. Or give us a call at 877-39-STONE.
