The topic of Marble Tile Patterns is interesting for a variety of reasons. One of them is the manner in which you achieve the patterning. Let’s point a few things out for your consideration.
If you think about it for a minute, pattern can be achieved by simply taking advantage of the natural veining in the stone. The veins and swirling in most natural stones are a product of mineral impurities that have, over vast periods of time, formed layers and grains. The image at the top of this post and immediately above are from our Skyline Honed Marble Collection. Notice how the veins create a flow that can be used to a design teams advantage in the production of pattern.
Now please take a glance at the image above from the same collection. In this instance, pattern is achieved by the use of elongated rectangular shapes and is not reliant on veining.
We hope we have added value to your natural stone experience and thanks for reading.
