To mark the launch of our new Art Select Stones collection in the UK, we’ll be taking you on a journey through our inspiration destinations – so you can discover just where we found the original stones that inspired our latest designs. This month, we’re leading with the latest trend for marble in the home.
Inspired by the natural white and blue-grey marble quarried in the Province of Massa, Tuscany, they are available in 16” square tiles or 16” clipped corner tiles with complementary key squares.
For a modern twist on Art Deco design, consider using our clipped corner stone tile format with matching key squares (as below). There’s also the option to go one step further with a complementary diamond border.
In sharp contrast to our classic marble designs, Ashford stands out from the crowd and takes its inspiration from an unworked piece of Ashford black marble unearthed during excavation work in Ashford-in-the-Water, Derbyshire in 2009.
One of a kind and not a true marble in the geological sense, Ashford (pictured below) is referred to as marble, however the rock is of purely sedimentary origin. What’s more, this stone has been designed in a unique random panel format for a truly authentic look.
Design tip – Look to team the discreet acid marble effects of this stone with bright and contemporary colours and accessories.
