The trend for marble in interiors really took off last year, and in 2016 it continues to be an important look in all aspects of design. For opulence and elegance, it is a clear winner. To avoid lugging cartloads of the precious but oh-so-heavy and surprisingly fragile material around your or your client’s home, it is time to take a lesson from fashion and embrace marble print.
Here’s how to incorporate marble into your interior with textiles:

The Marble Sea rug from Knots Rugs brings out the variegated colours of natural marble, and creates a harmonious field for the eye to lose itself in on the floor.
This Marble cushion from Ross and Brown is a back-to-basics interpretation of marble that captures the cool surface of the stone perfectly in textile.
When Martyn Lawrence Bullard designed the Romeo fabric for Schumacher, he did so with a twist, turning the veins of the rock into painterly swirls. Something for those who want to try out this pattern but desire a softer feel.
