Natural stone has been considered a luxury building material since ancient times. It was used by the ancient Greeks and Romans for their towering temples, public buildings, imperial dwellings, statuary and more.
Over time, marble and natural stone have come to be used across the globe; from exotic hotels to luxury homes. Natural stone is an ideal blend of elegance, durability and quality necessary for these structures.

Marble is perfectly suited to the more public areas of high-end homes. Gardens can feature any number of custom elements; like marble steps paving the way to an elegant flowing fountain. Other such areas might include formal entryways or an elegant drive to the house from a secure gate.

White marble (Carrara, Estremoz, etc) is the most common choice for these projects, but it is far from the only option available. Other marbles and natural stones like limestones (Ruivina, Moleanos, Moca Creme, Ataija, Lioz, Azul Valverde, Brecha Tavira, etc) are available in a broad range of colors and patterns, allowing for personalized applications based on each homeowner’s preference.

Bathrooms featuring natural stone are elegant, stylish and beautiful. Even a single stone addition – a pair of custom marble sinks, for example – can transform a bathroom into a tranquil oasis. Natural stone sinks are far from the only ways this material can be included in luxury bathroom designs. Marble tubs and showers, stone flooring, vanities and even wall cladding are simple ways to bring a classy feel to any home.

Custom Stone Furniture
Most people assume natural stone is limited to floors or countertops but is the perfect choice for custom stone furniture. Tables, benches, custom-designed chairs – all of these can be designed to reflect each home’s individual style.
Today, designers and homeowners aren’t limited to traditional design methods. Working with custom stone manufacturers ensures that any shape or form can be created; whether style leans toward classic elegance or sleek modernity.
