Inspiration Monday #8: Marvel at Marble

Monday, 14 September 2015

Like with many of the trends I feature on this series, marble has very quickly become a design element I'm seeing absolutely everywhere. Not only is the physical stone making waves in home design, but imitations are just as highly sought after- It seems you can get just about anything printed with this trendy design! 

The use of marble in the design world dates back thousands of years. It was a highly favoured material in ancient Greece and Rome for structures and sculptures due to its durability- Something evident in the fact that many of these pieces are still around today.

Doesn't the marble in each imagine just create this great sense of sophistication? I just love it! I believe as a whole, the design world has moved away from the big 'handmade/reclaimed/vintage' movement and entered a more premium, simplistic style that truly embraces the use of natural stone. Here's hoping that marble will continue to grace us with it's presents through 2016.

What are your thoughts? Please leave your comments below.
