The Marvel of Marble

It’s always quite wonderful when we discover that one of our designs has been chosen for publication.

Just last month, we were thrilled to share on Twitter that our Wandsworth Kitchen had made it into May’s edition of the Essential Kitchen Bathroom Bedroom magazine.

And even more recently, we received word that our Felsted Kitchen had been chosen alongside some other incredible interiors for a Houzz ideabook editorial piece all about marvellous Marble:


Marble isn’t exactly what you think of when it comes to modern design – from Roman Palazzos to sculpted works of art – this cool veined stone has been a popular choice for centuries. But just as this article suggests, it’s this timeless appeal that means that even in the most contemporary of spaces, marble is at home.

In reference to our Felsted Kitchen design, this article picks up on how we mixed ‘n’ matched our kitchen surfaces with practical stainless steel for the main worktops combined with a marble worktop just for the island. This made a real feature of the island and added a touch of luxury to the overall design. And as suggested here, marble isn’t always the best all-rounder for kitchen worktops as it’s not quite as hard-wearing as granite or composite surfaces. But if you’re a keen baker, it’s cold, porous surface creates the perfect conditions for rolling out pastries and dough. If that’s not enough, it’s also wonderful to look at and even better to touch.
