Black and white continues to be a key trend in interiors and marble is becoming the stone of choice. Specialists Stone Age are using heavily veined white and dark marble to create a dramatic finish that can be used on walls, floors and even basins.

Extremely hard wearing, marble is highly durable and less porous than other stones and easy to maintain with using a light stone soap and a damp cloth. Etna marble (black basin) from £83 sq.m. for tiles; Calcutta Oro (walls and floors) from £109 sq.m. For tiles, Stone Age 020 7384 9090 www.estone.co.uk
