This edition focuses on three more marvelous marble surfaces. It is easy to overlook the incredible variety within a single category of stone but here we have three very different surfaces in their patterns, colour and affect.
The Emperador Light is a soft brown marble with very fine, busy veining. The lighter coloured veins give it fantastic character. Being on the softer and lighter side of the palette, this stone can also provide a great base colour for a room and could be a fantastic solution for kitchen and bathroom designs alike.
Fior Di Bosco
The patterns and colour combinations of the Fior di Bosco are ones that I particularly admire. The manner in which the cloudy greys mix and interweave with each other in the background of this stone give a wonderful canvas to the variety of white and sandy veining on each slab. As always, the frequency of veining in each slab can vary immensely between different blocks but in this particular block, you can find the best of both worlds, with a fairly clean and simple area visible in the main, next to the busier section to the bottom left portion. Utilizing these two sections in the same design could create something really special.
One look at the Grand Antique conveys all you need to know about this absolutely breath-taking marble. For anyone looking for a modern, monochrome interior style, this must be a strong contender. Black and white combine in quite a chaotic manner throughout this stone, which gives it a fantastic edge and a striking quality, effective as a one-off decorative piece or as the basis to the design of a room.
As always, you should always check with your fabricator whether you will require any treatments on stone for the position and purpose in which you intend to use it.
