The use of marble in architecture dates back thousands of years to ancient Egyptian and Mesopotamian cultures. Capable of bearing immense weight, marble was ideally suited for monolithic columns and supporting structures in public, private, and religious buildings. In days gone by, incorporating marble into your space implied a serious commitment (and expense) as people favourite large marble top benches and beautiful tiled floors. However, these days you’re more likely to find this highly versatile and elegant stone adorning stylish homes in smaller and more subtle accents - allowing you to test drive the aesthetic without having to commit to the price of remodelling.
So when it comes to introducing marble accessories into your home, focus on choosing one or two well made pieces to highlight the home. Whether it’s a beautifully carved pair of lamps, a decorative candle holder or some elegant cheese boards - there’s no limit to the way you can add a touch of luxury to your space.
