Since ancient times, marble has been used to adorn palaces and temples. Its ability to bear immense weight combined with its alluring, intricate texture made marble the obvious choice for famous buildings as diverse as the Taj Mahal, the Parthenon and the palace of Versailles. In fact, it’s so beautiful that one tends to forget that marble is actually solid slabs of rock cut from the earth.
Bringing marble into your home adds a sense of timelessness. Yet the use of marble needn’t be old-fashioned in any way. Underplaying the glamour of marble with contemporary, clean lines and combining it with steel and brass, takes this majestic material to a whole new level.
