This stone was capable of holding weight and supporting massive structures, all while giving off a beautiful sheen.  There’s a reason why building and designing homes and architecture with marble is still so popular today: it is as timeless as it is stunning.

Marble adds a touch of European splendor to any space and is a favorite for home owners and builders alike. If you want to transform your living space into a stunning architectural masterpiece like those of days gone by, look no further. We’re discussing at the best marble to create an ancient feel in your home.


Taj Mahal and Classic White Marble

The Taj Mahal was built between 1932 and 1953 by the empower Shah Jahan. This famous sight was erected as a monument to the emperor’s late wife Mumtaz Mahal. If you’ve seen the sights of beautiful and ancient marble Taj Mahal, you know that this ancient monument is made from marble, but not the deep veined marble you see today. The outside of the Taj is made of beautiful, smooth white marble. If you’re looking to replicate this classic look with a clean marble, consider using the creamy White Diamond slab in your next project.


Colored Marbles like the pink Marble Palace

The aptly named Marble Palace is a mansion in Saint Petersburg, Russia. This palace is made up of pink marble. Colored marbles are a stunning accent of focal piece to any design project. Get the ancient look by choosing marbles with colored undertones, such as the honey orange hued Breccia Damascatta or the shimmering Iceberg Blue.


Mixing Light and Dark Marbles

The Washington Monument was built between 1848 and 1884, with a 30 year hiatus due to funding issues. This American structure was created from a marble quarry in Texas, Maryland and another in Baltimore, Maryland. Because the marble used came from two different quarries, the structure was built with a mixture of light and dark marble. You can replicate this look by using our Naxos marble in your decor. This creamy finish is a mix of light and dark marble that will bring elegance into every room.

Ancient structures made with marble look rich and lavish. These looks can easily be replicated in your home and bring in an air of luxury to your space.
