When thinking of marble, associations with the old Greek and Roman empires and classical architecture may come to mind. Nowadays however, extensive use of building materials such as cement, steel and glass cause an urge towards refinement and detail.
Marble is finding its way back into our homes in, sometimes, quite different ways than back in the ancient times – even though some may argue that the marble has never left. In pivoting marble doors in your own home for example.
One of a kind
Marble expresses a timeless kind of luxury that no other material can surpass. Clay, silt, sand and other ‘impurities’ in the mineral cause the characteristic swirls and veins in colored marble, making available a large variety of colors and forms that can fit any type of interior or exterior. With such a long history of taking shape, every piece of marble tells its own history and creates a unique statement in your home.
