Marble has been considered a luxury building material since ancient times.  It was used by the ancient Greeks and Romans for their towering temples, public buildings, imperial dwellings, statuary and more.

Over time, marble has come to be used across the globe; from exotic hotels to luxury homes. Natural stone is an ideal blend of elegance, durability and quality necessary for these structures.

Common Areas

Marble is perfectly suited to the more public areas of high-end homes. Gardens can feature any number of custom elements; like marble steps paving the way to an elegant flowing fountain. Other such areas might include formal entryways or an elegant drive to the house from a secure gate.

White marble is the most common choice for these projects, but it is far from the only option available. Luxury marble is available in a broad range of colors and patterns, allowing for personalized applications based on each homeowner’s preference.

Baths

Bathrooms featuring luxury marble are elegant, stylish and beautiful. Even a single marble addition – a pair of custom marble sinks, for example – can transform a bathroom into a tranquil oasis. Marble sinks are far from the only ways this material can be included in luxury bathroom designs. Marble tubs and showers, marble flooring, marble vanities and even wall cladding are simple ways to bring a classy feel to any home.

Custom Stone Furniture

Most people assume natural stone is limited to floors or countertops. But Luxury marble is the perfect choice for custom stone furniture. Tables, benches, custom-designed chairs – all of these can be designed to reflect each home’s individual style.

Today, designers and homeowners aren’t limited to traditional design methods. Working with custom stone manufacturers ensures that any shape or form can be created; whether style leans toward classic elegance or sleek modernity.

Wall Cladding

The exciting thing about natural marble design is the variety coming from top designers. Even in wall cladding, today’s custom designs include three-dimensional images, unique color and style options. This allows homeowners to create a one of a kind living area that reflects their own personalities and sense of style.
