From hotel lobbies and bars to the living rooms of residential properties, fireplaces are a central area where people come together. Revered for their luxurious and timeless feel, characterful marble surrounds are ideal for making a beautiful design statement.
There is a range of different marbles to choose from, offering ultimate flexibility when it comes to designing your fireplace. It’s important to make sure your material choice will suit and complement the rest of the décor, from colour palettes to modern or classic styles.
Full-height Feature Walls
A more contemporary take on fireplace surround design, a full-height feature wall in a striking marble is guaranteed to make an eye-catching statement. Filled with ripples of gold, white and black, Confusion Dark is ideal for a hotel master suite. Seen here with a matching mantel in the same material, the gold veining is complemented by the décor to create a truly opulent scheme.
A popular feature of many modern homes, a woodburning stove can also be framed by a beautiful feature wall. Elegante Grey sits behind this woodburner, creating a cohesive backdrop that suits the aesthetic of the interior.
Surrounds and Hearths
A more classic surround can also add beautiful visual appeal. From hotel receptions as seen here with the Marron Polished surround to calming and inviting living spaces using a lighter stone such as Rosso Limbara, a characterful fireplace surround will add interest and intrigue to any interior whether in a modern or traditional setting.
Full-impact Colourful Marble
Nothing says luxury like a bold colourful marble, and a fireplace is the perfect place to make a statement. Ideal for those with a more confident approach to interior design, a stone filled with colourful veining and detailing will encase a fireplace beautifully.
If you’re looking to make heads turn, consider a beautifully detailed coloured marble such as Rainforest Green, seen here on a corner installation, or Verde Luana. Rosso Luana is also guaranteed to make an impact. A stunning marble that could be mistaken for a piece of art, the red, orange, cream and blue shades combine in this unique stone to create a truly mesmerising wave-like pattern.
