For thousands of years Marble has been sought after for buildings, monuments and temples. Some of the oldest Architectural Structures in Europe and Asia are made of marble. Marble also has had its place in the US. The most iconic structures in the US capitol are made of marble: the Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial and the White House.
Clearly marble is a high quality, enduring Architectural material. And yet more modern materials have been used in place of marble in recent years. While these man-made materials are the best choice for some projects, there are advantages that make marble the best value for other high-end projects.
Notably natural stone is very versatile and suitable for unlimited combinations of decorative styles. The properties marble has always had combined with modern stone cutting technology result in details in coping, borders and shapes that cannot easily or cost-effectively be achieved with other materials.
The bath tub in the featured image above was made entirely of one piece of stone with no seams, a detail that high-end clients appreciate.
For centuries, marble has been found in the quarries of Northern Italy.
