purpose. beauty. inspiration.

April 26, 2018

It’s no secret that marble can add a sense of elegance to just about any interior. And while white marbles (especially Carrara and Calacatta) have come back in style with a vengeance over the last several years, colored marbles have also been starting to pop up again within the last year or two.

This isn’t the first time that the colored marble trend has come about, of course. In one of our design classes back in school, the professor made a comment that “all designs are inspired by something that has come before.” We couldn’t agree more. Just look through these photos from the floors of European cathedrals from the 19th and 20th centuries, and try to tell us that the colored marble trend wasn’t inspired by the past.
