Marble is a material that each of us know very well. Used since antiquity in sculpture and in architecture, nowadays, it has taken very well to the field of design. Marble is a material that I believe we all feel is beautiful and refined.
I don’t know if you know this, but marble is mainly composed by calcite, which is a material characterized by a low refractive index, causes the light to penetrate into its surface before being reflected, and it is this gives the marble its special brightness.
The word “marble” derives from the Greek language that means “shining stone.”
I bet you’ve already come up with your dream floors, immense and beautiful, typical of the architecture of the great past, right?
MARBLE IN DESIGN
One of the main uses of the marble in design, is precisely that of being a precious coating material, for both floors and walls. The final effect of this application immediately gives off an atmosphere of luxury and class. Am I right?
HOW TO USE IT
You can choose marble whether you prefer to coat entire surface, or just specific area.
Choose marble it if you want pure material background, or if you want marble that is characterized by geometric patterns, which is available in infinite combinations.
Furthermore, you can choose between many varieties of marble which differ, from aesthetic reasons to color and grain. You can have a lot of colors: stones ranging from light colors to black, through shades of beige, pink, gray, orange, yellow, red, green… there are really all kinds for every taste and project you have in mind. 😉
Another way we can put marble in our interior is to use it to compliment the furnishings.
Here too we have a wide variety of products that we can get: tables, coffee tables, lamps, consoles, vases, picture frames, hangers, storage, and even bathroom furniture.
How can I not mention the “star” of marble? Obviously, it is also Italian: white Carrara marble. Beautiful. Highly requested and used in decorative coatings.
If you like this material, then you can’t miss the exhibition dedicated to it! The Marmomacc in Verona. It is celebrated every year in September. 😉
What do you think of the marble? Do you like it used as a coating material or is it better to see it in small doses as an accent to the furniture?
