The secret of success is to love what you do, to follow a dream, a vision, to do nothing for the money Tetyana Kovalenko
Elite Stone GroupAn ever-evolving story
Leader in the global luxury stone sector, supplier of the most prestigious projects, point of reference for the most important architectural firms, synonymous with “Made in Italy” quality and beauty, Elite Stone S.r.l. was founded in 2007 by the creativity and inspiration of Tetyana Kovalenko in Carrara.
Among the Apuan Alps white mountains, a true love for the most luxurious marble in the world blossoms.
Here relationships and collaborations are established and developed with the quarries of the Tuscan territory, in particular with one of the most important quarries in the area – Calacatta Borghini.
From Carrara Elite Stone supplies fine white marble to international distributors for projects of great value, including the Mariinsky Theater with its 4,000 m2 of backlit onyx facades, shopping malls, presidential palaces and many private projects.
In 2013 the head office moved to the Verona area, the second largest Italian center in the stone sector, which offers interesting opportunities to meet artists, architects, craftsmen and interior designers operating in the world of stone. The new headquarters opens new opportunities on the European market and brings Carrara to Verona.
Elite Stone in fact, since 2013, boasts the largest collection of Italian white marbles at its headquarters.
The continuous collaboration with architectural studios and the involvement in ever more important projects make it necessary to create a new project department.
In 2015 ES Atelier evolved a company of professionals and craftsmen with the aim of designing and creating marble projects of great value. In these years, several important high-tech projects such as Kotel Sinagogue Jerusalem and many others are being implemented.
At the same time, the refined showroom dedicated to luxury projects, high technology applied to marble and sublime interiors was also born in Verona. In the same flourishing year, ES Atelier creates a line of backlit furnishing accessories, perfect for delightful and luxurious environments, characterized by a high tech system, presented for the first time at the Salone Del Mobile in Milan.
A constant growth of Elite Stone’s presence on the London market leads in 2017 to the inauguration of ES Gallery, a new luxury showroom in the heart of London created by the collaboration between Elite Stone and the Calacatta Borghini quarry.
The unprecedented project combines pure design with marble production, creating an unforgettable location where “Marble” invents a new language to talk about elegance and ultra-chic living, a place to discuss, gather and present the latest innovations in the world of marble.
Here Tetyana Kovalenko, as geologist and marble expert, teaches the master’s course in ornamental stone for RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects).
In 2020 the headquarters moved to a new single location in the Verona area – 17,000 m2 of internal exhibition space and 50,000 m2 of incredibly suggestive external area.
Here one of the largest collections of Italian marbles, slabs and blocks is exhibited, gathered in one place to be admired and selected for prestigious projects, yachts, private jets or luxurious villas. In this space open to all creatives and lovers of beauty, it is possible to admire the most beautiful and precious slabs, dream and imagine.
New OpeningDubai showroom
Another new challenge for ES is the opening of the new headquarters in Dubai in 2023: for the first time a direct Italian manufacturer opens its own showroom and warehouse containing about 50,000 square meters of slabs rigorously produced by the parent company in Italy, an exhibition space of the most beautiful and luxurious slabs destined for valuable projects in the Middle East area.
