Carrara Marble::

I think I am obsessed with carrara marble. I feel like it looks good anywhere you put it. From countertops and back-splash's in kitchens to bathroom showers or walls. I absolutely love its classic look and rich appearance. It even looks good on tables or as lamp bases.  Here are some photos of Carrara Marble used in different ways.
A brief history about Carrara
Carrara
city, Massa-Carrara provincia, Toscana (Tuscany) regione, in north-central Italy. It lies along the Carrione River in the foothills of the Apuan Alps, just northwest of Massa and east of La Spezia. Acquired by the Malaspina family in 1428, it constituted, with Massa, the principality (1568) and duchy (1633) of Massa-Carrara. The city's notable landmarks include the 12th- to 14th-century cathedral, built in the Pisan style, and the academy of fine arts, housed in the former ducal palace. The city is famous for some of the world's finest marble, called Carrara, taken from nearby quarries and used by sculptors from Michelangelo to Henry Moore.

  1. Finally I found something useful to me. I have been looking for information on this particular topic for a lot of time now. I can't believe it is this difficult to find something on the Internet like this. I must be looking for the wrong thing or I don't know how to use Google. Anyway, thanks a lot for making this post available to us.ere
