Material Bank now offers exotic natural stone slabs and tiles in a variety of rare colors for a look that goes beyond ubiquitous neutrals. Imported primarily from South America and Africa, quartzite, marble and granite slabs enhance the luxury of natural stone by offering enchanting colors in both eye-popping and moody shades. Italian marbles such as Rosso Francia ― a stone very popular in Renaissance-era architecture ― offer a classical look, while richly colored blue stones from South America offer a vibrant contemporary sensibility. Pair colored stones with matching ceramic tiles or color-coordinate with fabrics and wallcoverings. Whether you are going for a traditional look inspired by Victorian, Vienna Secessionist or Classical architecture, or an unexpected contemporary aesthetic, these colored stone options are worth exploring.
