With the minimalist look becoming outdated, we predict a resurgence of the nineties in natural stone slabs. Expect to see a return of coloured slabs of greens, pinks and browns amongst marble trends. Taking a turn in looks, plain cabinetry is now being complemented with statement bench-tops.
These are the predicted marble trends.
Melbourne-based interior designer Lauren Li of Sisällä Interior Design attended the 56th year of Milan’s Furniture Fair and noted,
“Marble continues to be the preferred material for kitchens, however, the look is now decidedly more discreet, with little Carrara seen this year. Instead, we saw green and brown marble used.”
“Instead we saw green and brown marble used. Gone is the 40 or 60mm thick stone bench. Marble benchtops were as thin as possible, often using a shark-nose profile to appear to float over the cabinets. Sometimes the edge wasn’t visible at all, with the bench sunken into the cabinetry,” Li says.
Here at Victoria Stone Gallery, we are excited to bring you some new and exciting coloured marbles in the new year.
