Malachite: The New Marble

Creating a statement, malachite is on trend for 2015. It’s a bold call, but some have said that this luxurious green mineral is the new marble.

Marble is timeless, clean and inviting and one of my favourite materials in interior design. I don’t think I can be swayed but I couldn’t resist a closer look at what’s got the industry in a buzz.

Esteemed interior designer Joe Burns tells The Times, “Not only does it offer an intense colour for interiors that continues on from the deep blues we have seen this year, it also presents a wonderful, organic print.”

The naturally formed psychedelic patterns create intrigue and interest in a neutral interior and lend themselves well to glamorous Parisian design styles.
