Classic Marble Tiles and Slabs That Will Never Go Out of Style
Updated: Nov 18
Trends will come and go, but some marbles never go out of style. Natural stone marble has always been the most favored stone in architecture for centuries. If you are looking to remodel your kitchen, bathroom or living space, and want it to stay current years down the line, Marble and Tile USA has the finest marble tiles and natural stone slabs for you.
Bianco Carrara (Carrara White), Michelangelo’s material of choice, is your classic veined white marble. Very similar to stones like Bianco Venatino marble, Bianco Carrara is known for its cool white and grey coloring, and has been a favorite stone for centuries. Carrara White can be used as a marble kitchen countertop or as a marble backsplash.
If you are looking for a neutral beige marble, similar to Taj Mahal quartzite and Crema Marfil marble, White Sand marble is a fantastic choice. The stone has very soft veining, and is stocked in a variety of honed and polished finishes.
Statuary is a quintessential Italian marble, used to carve many of Italy’s most famous sculptures. Known for its black and grey bolts cast upon pure whites, Statuary Classico is a true classic marble and can be found in a variety of home styles due to its versatile nature.
Calacatta Macchia Vecchia or Calacatta Rust
Calacatta Macchia Vecchia, or Calacatta Rust, is for the homeowner who is looking for a truly unforgettable natural stone. Sourced in Italy's grandest quarries, the exquisite marble is distinguished by grey accents and veins swept across creamy whites & mellow ochre.
If you ask any interior designer, contractor, or developer for the perfect grey marble, they will most likely recommend Bardiglio Nuvolato, or Bardiglio Gray. Quarried in Tuscany, Bardiglio marble is a fine-grained, deep grey, cloudy natural stone. Available in field tiles, and bookmatch slabs, Bardiglio is most commonly used for walls, countertops, mosaic patterns, and floors. To achieve the classic checkerboard marble floors, pair Bardiglio Grey with Carrara White marble.
Also known as Nero Marquina, Negro Marquina is a true classic. This black marble with striking white veins has quite a rich heritage, and has been used for decades. Negro Marquina marble is extremely versatile, and can be mixed with a variety of stones like Thassos White, Bianco Dolomiti or materials like terrazzo, ceramic tiles, wood and more.
Cipollino, or "little onion" in Italian, is named for its exquisite layers of green, beige, white and grey tones, making for a truly unique marble. Quarried in northern Italy, Cipollino marble has been widely used throughout antiquity for its fine ornamental quality. Due to its striking nature, this stone works beautifully for a kitchen island as the focal point.
Calacatta Gold, or Calacatta Gold Extra, are highly sought after Italian polished white marbles, and are best known for their soft grey and gold veining combined with stark whites. Calacatta Gold marble slabs can be applied in any home style including, traditional, modern, mid-century, Scandinavian, farmhouse, transitional and more. This stone can also be used for kitchen countertops, backsplashes, shower walls, floors, and more.
A beautiful blue-tinted version of Calacatta, Calacatta Bluette marble is for the homeowner who wants to add a striking cool tone to their space. Bluette's smooth swirls and pale blue tones are considered an Italian classic, and bear a close resemblance to other traditional Calacattas.
