Marble has been used for centuries in it's pure white form. However, according to Marble Maestro, even though the term ‘marble’ hailing from the Greek origin ‘marmaros’ translates quite directly as ''a snow white and spotless stone'', it is available in a myriad of colours.
As a natural stone, marble is very tactile and versatile, capable of bearing immense weight. Recent years have seen a revival in the use of marble in various forms such as lighting, furniture, fireplace cladding, walls, tableware, splashbacks, countertops, cabinetry, flooring, decor accessories, soft furnishings such as bed linen, curtains, cushions etc, wallpaper, jewellery and even in the world of haute couture.
Furthermore, types of marble are equally variable, ranging from pure white or grey Carrara marble to limestone, mineral green, rich red Lepanto marble and cultured marble which is an amalgam of marble dust, colorants and polyester resins.
To celebrate the beauty of coloured marble, here's a visual feast of dramatic and subtle marble imagery that is sure to wow and inspire!
