Yeah, I get it, we all LOVE carrera marble. But, do we have to use it on every countertop & in every bathroom (in about 300,000 different tile patterns, sizes & combos)?
I, too, LOVE this stone.
It IS all of the things I mentioned above. In fact, it is by far one of my favorites (close 2nd to Calcutta & Steel Grey Slate. I guess that is 3rd – but really, who is keeping track).
SIDE BAR: I have used it in “many-a-bathroom” in my career but rarely use it in kitchens. It has WAY TOO MANY maintenance issues & you know me…FUNCTION FIRST!
A project of Spacial Adaptation in 2009
I do, however, fear that it will become the “Travertine of 2011!”
Let’s think of more creative ways to utilize this stone…ways which appreciate the natural movement of the pattern, the subtle color transitions & add to the beauty which already exists within the material.
Slabs – How about floors and walls? LOVELY!
Maybe, a little sculpture? Seriously AMAZING!
Furniture? Not comfortable but maybe more of an art piece, this one.
