Carrera marble is one of the most desirable building materials in the world. Quarried in the mountains above Carrera, a town in northern Tuscany, its beautiful white or blue-gray color is highly sought after in part because of its elegant, clean aesthetic.
Carrera marble has a lovely natural beauty that provides a timeless, classic look. It fits in flawlessly with virtually any type of architectural style. Carrera marble is used for many purposes in the home, including countertops, backsplashes, floors, fireplaces, and tiles.
Like other natural stones such as granite, each slab of Carrera marble is unique since it is formed through natural processes. Because of this, each slab varies slightly in appearance.
The selection of Carrera marble by discerning homeowners has a long history. Used since ancient Roman times, this gorgeous stone has been cherished for millennia for its classic, luxurious appeal and spectacular natural beauty.
Carrera marble was utilized in many of the most highly regarded buildings in ancient Rome, including the Pantheon and the Temple of Proserpina. It was also used in many sculptures of the Renaissance including Michelangelo’s David.
Notable occurrences in modern fine architecture outside of Italy include London’s Marble Arch, the Oslo Opera House, the Glasgow City Chambers, the Manila Cathedral, and the buildings of Harvard Business School.
