BUDRI EYEWEAR:
MARBLES WHICH REMEMBER SAND AND FORESTS FOR A SPECIAL SUMMER
Budri, Italian excellence recognized in the world for the marvelous marble finishes, proposes for the summer two eye-catching models made with unusual color variations.

 

The expressive, sculpted Canova model achieves an original character through the use of Serrancolin Versailles, a luxury marble quarried near the towns of Serrancolin, Ilhet and Beyrede-Jumet, high in the Pyrenees. This magnificent, elegant, prestigious stone has a cream-light brown-grey background colour and dramatic brick red, ochre yellow and olive green veins. The dappling of the bright colours across the plain background resembles the effects seen in French Impressionist paintings.

 

At the time of the Roman Empire, this stone was quarried for the production of massive columns. Between April 1686 and September 1689, four gigantic blocks of Serrancolin were delivered to Paris for use in the construction of Louis XIV’s royal palace at Versailles. From then onward, King Louis XIV awarded the quarries the title of “carrières royales” (royal quarries) and the marble became known as Serrancolin Versailles. In 1887 Serrancolin Versailles was used to make thirty monolithic columns for the Palais Garnier (Paris Opera House) and to decorate sumptuous rooms in the Château d’Écouen.

Rain Forest – the variant of the Palladio model – recalls the typical luxuriant, bright green colours of tropical forests. The material, obtained from the Udaipur quarry in India, features a range of stunning greens running from olive and forest green through to acid green, with pronounced brown veins covering the surface like tree roots or fossilised branches. Tactile and thrilling to the touch, this stone brings its wearer into contact with untamed nature. Nowadays this beautiful, elegant material is also widely used in contemporary architecture.
