In a sea of neutrals, which white is right?
White marble has been at the forefront of architecture for centuries, but that doesn’t mean all white marble is the same. Trends are always changing, and many of the time-honoured neutral marble options are becoming less popular, while there’s been an increase in alternative styles. Many designers are pushing the boundaries and introducing more daring marble. That’s why Cote D’Azur marble has become some of the most sought-after white marble in the market.
Cote D’Azur is a bold statement in contrast. With stark grey veining, this natural masterpiece provides a unique design unparalleled by common marble. The bright white backdrop pays homage to the timeless designs of Italian marble with a contemporary twist.
Cote D’Azur adorns the benchtop and splashback in this kitchen and bathroom by GIA Bathrooms & Kitchens Renovations. The design’s minimalist features allow Cote D’Azur’s prominent veining and natural beauty to take centre stage.
CDK Stone director David Onesti explains why this marble has seen such a strong increase in popularity: “Designers are drawn to Cote D’Azur because of its unique beauty and versatility. Whether you’re designing a monochrome, greyscale, minimal or traditional interior, Cote D’Azur’s colour palette and veining integrate with current trends and architectural elements.
“Architects and designers are always searching for that impact, that statement piece, and they’ve found it in Cote D’Azur.”
This marble’s striking pattern and combination of thin and thick veining adds an unmatched sense of depth and is ideal for kitchens, bathrooms, floors and walls. “I’ve found that designers often use Cote D’Azur as wall features because of its striking patterns,” David adds. “There also seems to be an attraction to using this marble in less conventional areas, such as fireplace features and wardrobes.”
It’s time to say goodbye to subtler marble and create your next bold masterpiece with Cote D’Azur.
