Italian marble – The classic and timeless choice for your space

Italian Marble, renowned for its opulence and elegance, stands as a testament to timeless beauty in architectural design. Quarried from Italy, this marble has been coveted for centuries, gracing iconic structures and sculptures with its exquisite allure.
Italian marble is used in some of the world’s most famous structures and sculptures. Some of these include:

Michelangelo’s David

Michelangelo’s masterpiece, David was carved out of a single block of Carrara marble and showcases the unrivalled craftsmanship of Italian sculptors. Having been in storage for around 25 years, this sculpture underwent exposure to harsh conditions when it was moved to different countries but it is known to have held onto its structural integrity quite well.  What sets this piece apart is the way in which Carrara’s characteristic luminosity, smoothness and (intricate) delicate veining truly shine through, bringing Michelangelo’s vision to life! 

The Pantheon

Located in the heart of Rome, the Pantheon stands as a testament to ancient Roman engineering, with the exquisite use of Carrara marble. Completed around 126 AD, the massive dome is a stunning display of Italian craftsmanship.The oculus, positioned at the dome’s summit, introduces natural light which is accentuated by the Carrara marble’s intricate veining and lustre. The remarkable quality of the Pantheon is the durability of the Carrara marble and how it has stood the test of time despite being exposed to intense weather conditions.

The above-mentioned pieces and structures hold immense historical and cultural significance, but what adds to their essence is the material itself.
