LASTS A LIFETIME!
Since antiquity, natural stone has been considered one of the highest quality materials in architecture. Wealthy Romans paneled entire rooms with natural stones, used them for benches and sinks or commissioned impressive sculptures for their enormous gardens. People fought passionately for the most beautiful and pure pieces of the eternally popular white Carrara marble, used by the most famous sculptors in the world, which explains why the lighter kind is called “statuario”, which means statuesque in Italian.
Natural stone is appealing not just for its natural beauty but for its versatility: The clouds, avenues and veins apparent in every polished stone awaken our fantasies by mirroring light and telling the story of earth’s ancient history.
The upsides of using natural stones are manifold: they are easy on the environment, are simple to process, are eminently durable and resilient, age beautifully, are fireproof, hypoallergenic and low maintenance. Any more questions?
Natural stone is the perfect material for RALF SCHMITZ’s elegant but always functional homes. So we are happy to use them frequently and generously in the luxurious master baths, as fireplace surrounds, in inviting foyers or as decorative elements on building façades – and we hope they last forever!
Natural stones and earth-toned marble are transformed into the highest-quality decor elements in the luxurious bathrooms of RALF SCHMITZ
