Imperial Danby Honed Dilemma, 2littlefishies?

Posted by Lorenza5064 (My Page) on

I have determined that I want Imperial Danby Marble, honed for my kitchen (white cabs, hardwood floor). The slabs that are available right now are very heavily veined/streaked. The samples that I have seen were much "quieter", very similar to the marble that 2littlefishies installed. She has posted numerous, beautiful images of her kitchen. I am uncomfortable with the slabs that are "on hold" for me. I would also consider other variants of Imperial Danby or other honed marble species that have subtle veining characteristics. Any suggestions?

Are you in a hurry? Will they be getting more in? I chose the slabs in the back of the stack which were quieter than those in the front of the stack. (If that makes any sense.) There are many Danby marbles (7 or 8?) but Imperial has the gray and gold veining. Did you look at their site? I'd also see if somewhere else has slabs you could look at. I wouldn't settle on ones you don't like!

Thank you!
I'm in NJ. We got it at PMI in Marlboro and our fabricator was Elite Granite- I in Englishtown.

2lf, I figured you would ask me those ??? Yes, I have been to the Vermont Danby website. There are others that r interesting, but I do feel that Imperial is "the pick of the litter", hence the name. I am about to "break ground" on the reno, so we are probably 6-8 weeks away from counter top. I will press my fabricator a bit on sourcing other slabs as I agree that I should not compromise, too important, focal, and expensive. I would say that your slabs represent the ideal variant of Imperial Danby and that was the look of the samples and examples I have seen. Thanks for the response. BTW, I am using your lovely corner detail, I call it "chamfered with larks tongue". My KD was quite impressed with the visuals you provided and it is always great to bring design expertise to the KD ;-o))).

We used PMI also. They have a website with current inventory. It is either PMI rock dot com or PMI stone dot com I think.
