Decorative Marble is our term for marbles that we would normally use for centrepiece statements on feature walls and floors. Architectural details, columns or decorative furniture.
The majority of these stones are historic Marbles that have been quarried for centuries such as Nero Portoro, Belgian Black, Royal Blue, or Opera Fantastico. These amazing stones have been used in palaces, mansions and grand buildings over the years and are the stones that have created the image of Marble as the most luxurious of surface products available. New to this section are Marbles from China, Africa, the Far East and South America, which have developed as the market for colourful Marbles has expanded beyond traditional European quarries.
We do see many clients using some of these more fragile and beautiful materials for work surfaces and would encourage any user to follow their design vision to create a truly special room but would always advise caution if they are thinking that anything in this selection will fall under the durable and practical heading.
As discussed above, the majority of materials in this selection will be Marbles, but there will be certain materials without a pigeon hole as their geological make-up is unique compared to a broad classification. These may include Calcites, Sodalites, Haematites and semi-precious stone conglomerates.
