The rare elegance of marble cannot be emulated by any other material. With exquisite softness, distinctive coloring, and dramatic veining, every slab of marble is completely unique. Marble surfaces result in an exclusive look that is both sophisticated and inviting. 

While some are hesitant to apply marble in the kitchen because it requires more care to prevent staining and scratching, natural stone experts will confirm that this is not a reason to refrain from using this gorgeous material in the kitchen. On the contrary, they will affirm that the extra maintenance is well worth the resulting beauty. 

Inspired by the 2012 High Point Market and International Contemporary Furniture Fair, here are a few of the new ways that marble is being used in today's kitchens to add unique elegance and warmth. 

Marble tops are being adding to existing dining tables to achieve custom looks in a wide range of styles.
