Marble

Marble is the reigning queen of elegance. It is the ideal choice for vanity tops, bar tops, furniture tops and other areas where elegance and sophistication is the objective. Marble is acid sensitive, so be aware of this when choosing marble in areas that will be subjected to spills from drinks, etc.
