Marble is a naturally occurring metamorphic stone that has been around for centuries. Ancient Greece and Roman civilisations extracted and used the stone in architecture and interior design, creating ornate colonnades and pediments with intricate detailing. In the later centuries, it was used to build temples and wonders of the world, such as the Taj Mahal, along with adorning interior elements like flooring and wall cladding. Painter, architect and sculptor Michelangelo used marble to create his masterpiece, David, which inspired generations of designers. Today, marble remains one of the building industry's most versatile materials for the following reasons:

Versatility: Marble is one of the few materials that can be adapted across different project scales, be it residential, offices or retail. It is clad on the facades of luxurious residences and in the interiors, marble finds its place as a luxury flooring material, wall-cladding, door and window frames, and furniture pieces like tabletops, TV consoles, and mandirs. In landscaping, it often features in water fountains and art elements.

Durability: Structures made from this naturally occurring material have withstood the test of time for centuries. Even in interior design, a good quality marble with 20mm thickness can last for decades and be repolished periodically for a renewed look.

Multiple finish options: The naturally occurring marble is rough in texture and is treated with various styles for a finished look. It's available in an array of finishes such as mirror shine, honed finish, leather finish, butter finish, tumbled finish, and more. Each finish is unique and changes the appearance of the marble, enabling dynamic aesthetics with the same material.

Timeless aesthetics: The material is found in various colour and texture options that never go out of style. Its aesthetics and application can be used for both traditional and contemporary spaces, testifying its adaptable qualities.
