Leathered Antique Brown Granite and River Valley Granite in Vienna, VA

Leathered Antique Brown Granite on the perimeter counters and River Valley Granite on the island. Leathered granite is a matte finish granite that has texture (the amount of texture usually depends on the minerals in the individual granites). Leathered Antique Brown Granite is a black (then name is a little off) granite that is almost soft to the touch. It still has a good amount of iridescence to it, as you can see in the photos. The River Valley Granite on the island is gentle, lilting stone that adds brightness and motion to the balance the dark perimeter counters.

Yes, I think that would be a great combination! If you want to see how they look together, I recommend visiting a local granite supplier and asking them for a sample of River White. Then you can take it home and see it with the cabinets. Here is a great example of River White with white colored cabinets. I think it looks stunning!

The granite on the island is River Valley Granite! It pairs beautifully with the other countertops which are Leathered Antique Brown Granite.

This one on the island is standard polished (what you normally see). The black granite on the islands is leathered. Leathered granite basically has a matte finish. It still has some shine (depending on the minerals in the stone) and it has texture (again the degree depends on the minerals of the particular stone). It's hard to see in photos, but it's a really great way to have a softer look from a stone. It's called "Leathered," but it's still completely natural granite. The polishing process is just a little different. We made a video that explains more:

I'm not sure. The homeowner put those in after we did the granite. Sorry!
