Talk about timeless!


Marble has been used throughout history as a building material, as well as being transformed into masterpieces by sculptors. Most varieties of Marble have characteristic swirls and veins, and it lends its refined elegance to classic and modern design alike. Travertine is Marble formed in ancient "hot springs" - the holes you see in Travertine were in fact air bubbles which became trapped in the stone as it formed. Limestone is Marble formed on sea shelves, which explains why so many varieties feature shells and fossils.

Marble, Travertine and Limestone require more preventative maintenance than Granite or Quartz. They are softer and more porous by nature, making them more susceptible to scratching and staining. Marble, Travertine and Limestone should be treated with a sealer at least once a year. It’s a simple and quick process – just pour on a liquid sealer and buff it off with a cloth. Any spills should be cleaned up promptly, and you should avoid acidic substances and sharp objects on these stones.
