Is there any material in the world of home design so spellbinding and coveted as marble? With its endless potential for mix-and-match styling, marble lends itself particularly well to modern interiors. One of our favourite places for marble is the kitchen, where its diverse tones, textures, and grains bring a unique, modern aesthetic with timeless appeal. From Calacatta, with its mesmerising veins of grey winding through pristine white, to Negro Marquina, moody and dark with lightning bolts of stark ivory, marble is some kind of magic.
