Inside view of Blue Marble Caves in Chile

A Blue Marble Must ‘Sea’!

With coloured stone on trend, and on our minds, we were in absolute awe coming across this natural stone beauty. Blue marble with hints of green, border these stunning caves in Chile.

The next place to add to your bucket list: Patagonia, Chile. In a freshwater glacier lake called General Carrera Lake stands a peninsula of marble caves called Capillas de Mármol. The natural wonder has multiple names, including the Marble Cathedral and Cuevas de Mármol, but visitors can agree that the magnificent site is worth the trip.
Blue Marble Caves Chile
The carving of the caves is a result of glacier movements millions of years ago. Reflecting the icy blue waters of the lake that’s shared by Argentina and Chile, the solid marble caves look almost unreal because of their swirling colours. The intensity of the walls change by water level and depending on the time of year.

Blue Marble Caves ChileThe journey to get to these caves isn’t the easiest, however. After flying into Santiago, Chile, an additional 1,287-km flight to Coyhaique and 321-km drive on rough roads are required. You’ll then need to take a ferry to the actual site. There are several combinations of transport you can take to arrive at the destination, including tours that can guide you the whole way. Regardless of how long the trek is, you’ll want to go through all that travel after seeing the photos ahead.

Natural Stone Furniture for your Home, 'River and Stream' by Kreoo

Natural Stone Furniture for Your Home – ‘River and Stream’ by Kreoo

 We found this article showcasing beautiful interior natural stone furniture for your home by Kreoo. We love the natural organic form of the furniture, it is very aesthetically pleasing. Stone can be a very flexible medium, it is not reserved for flat benchtops or vanity tops. You can make sink bowls, furniture, sculptures or use it as a wall covering. Use your imagination!

“River” and “Stream” represents Kreoo’s official brand offering to the American market. On the anniversary of Kreoo’s debut at Salone del Mobile in Milan 2010, designer Enzo Berti re-interprets and re-designs Pavè, the seating system for indoor and outdoor that has become the brand’s icon. Check out this stone furniture for your home!

Kreoo Stone Home Furniture Seating

The new seating “River” and “Stream” are comprised of marble seats. They are set on natural wood bases and offer two unique designs. Smooth, sculptural and with a dash of whimsy, River and Stream are the new seating for indoor and outdoor featuring layered marble and wood bases in two complimentary designs.  The first is streamlined and stretched with an extremely elegant effect. The second, a simple drop shape, perfectly rounded and graceful. The contrast of the marble’s intensity and the wood’s playful air provide a graceful and fluid aesthetic.

The two new models are independent,yet designed to integrate with one another.  Rivers’ elongated design compliments Stream’s rounded corner, working together to create a natural modular system with many seats. As in the entire Pavè Stone collection, River and Stream are inspired by the effect of natural river water gliding over the stones of the river bed: water flows, smoothes and polishes, forming nature’s great artwork.

The introduction of the new models offers new opportunities for designers, welcoming stools that are perfect both for contract and home.  Through alternate material options the Pavè Stone collection can be used both indoors and outdoors; seamlessly blending with nature or bringing its essence to an indoor space.

Marble Tables Packed With Surreal Resin – Check It Out!

Marble tables can pack the beauty of a pristine waterfront beach house

That is if it’s made by Caribbean-based designer Alexandre Chapelin. His furniture is sculptural in nature, as evidenced by the stunning new offerings he’s just added to his ongoing Lagoon resin and marble tables series. Combining sandy rock with a gradient of deep blue resins, he echoes the deepening azure of the ocean itself.

No two of Chapelin’s creations will ever look the same. “I refuse to make a manufactured product,” he tells The Creators Project. “Each model is unique. I cannot produce two identical tables, so neither will two people own the same table of my creation. I’ve always respected the difference between people, their personalities and characters. I believe this should reflect the interior design of their own homes. Therefore our concept is for no two people to ever own the same table.”

His latest work is Lagoon 55, a series of two coffee tables that look like an exotic Caribbean coastline meeting an aquifer, or underwater cave system. You can order your own bespoke version of the tables, created exactly to the measurements that make sense for your home from www.latable.house

Established in 2015, La Table have designed and created one-off tables fixed by a bespoke resin. Their selection of natural stones come straight from the Caribbean, providing a dazzling blue, unique and extraordinary architectural visual experience for the home. Each piece is made to order.
