Marshalls has this month launched a collection of four carefully curated black granite ranges, developed to provide unprecedented variety in the sought-after material colour, when added to the brand’s existing Proteus range.
Watch Rory Kendrick, Marshalls Natural Stone Sourcing Director, explain more about the new ranges here.
In keeping with current design trends, black granite continues to rise in popularity due to the aesthetic and contemporary finish it brings to modern design schemes.
Calling on an extensive supply network, Marshalls has sourced the new ranges from across the globe, working only with long standing suppliers who are committed to consistent quality, guaranteed supply longevity, and Marshalls high standards in respect to sustainability and ethics.
The four new ranges offer the best quality stone produced with unique natural patterns and shades:
Altair is a fine-grained granite with a tasteful, subtle sparkle and is capable of producing anything from unique radius kerbs to large-scale furniture.
Vela is a medium to coarse grained granite, with a desirable uniform appearance and undertones of bluish-grey. Quarried in large blocks it can be used for an array of applications from paving to water features.
This basalt granite range offers stunning rich, black tones for smaller element paving and setts.
Kreuzberg is also a basalt granite, adding further deep black shades to the collection and is available for paving, tactile paving and kerbs.
Each of the granites is available in a range of finishes including; flamed, fine picked, polished, and honed, as well as a new, unique clear blast finish – exclusive to the Altair range – providing vast design options for specifiers.
