  1. Natural Stone

The earth-inspired aesthetic of natural stone brings an understated sophistication to any space thanks to its unique grains, and veining. The natural stones featured in the Essential Collection include marble, undoubtedly one of nature’s most luxurious materials, and limestone, which is formed in the depths of the ocean, boasting a unique, natural beauty.
