For centuries, marble has been used for many purposes like building construction (who doesn’t know Taj Mahal?) or sculpture (we can never forget Michelangelo’s Pietà). Not so far ago, especially in the beginning of the 20th century, marble started to be seen as a home decor element, bringing elegance and luxury anywhere it was, which made this stone an extremely desired one. Till the mid-century, it saw its pinnacle, but then its high maintenance and new design movements dictated its decay. Luckily, nowadays marble is back, transcending its primary use – even Macbooks can have a cover with this stunning print – and we couldn’t miss the opportunity to enlighten you on how to use marble in your vintage kitchen decor. Check our tips below.
