Living Room

This is a renovation of 1950's ranch home. The home was reconfigured in side to make for a wide open floor plan with a dramatic white marble slab fireplace that acts as an anchor and monument for the living spaces.

Please note that due to the volume of inquiries & client privacy regarding our projects we unfortunately do not have the ability to answer basic questions about materials, specifications, construction methods, or paint colors. Thank you for taking the time to review our projects. We look forward to hearing from you if you are considering to hire an architect or interior Designer.

How did you keep this safely vertical given how heavy the marble is? - Hi there, I LOVE what you've done with this and I'm exploring doing something similar, but the calacatta marble slab is 20mm thick and exceptionally heavy. How did you get it to stay safely in place? Many thanks, Bernice

I would recommend you hire a professional stone installer - this is a very specialized install.

No, because the fireplace is built into this wall. A free standing fireplace would be something that sits by itself, say in the middle of a room, similar to a gas stove almost.

I still vote Calacutta or Cararra.....would be really surprised to learn it's Statuary. It can't compete in my opinion with the other two. This fireplace is a work of art! Wish the contractor or the builder who did it would tell us for sure. Another alternative is to print the picture and take it to your stone source.....they'll be able to tell you/show you which one it is if they know anything about the stone. Also, Houzz had a "discussion" article on which is which .....that may help someone.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Wow, a marble interior wall with a fireplace set into it. I never would have thought to create it myself but as soon as I saw it wished that it was mine. Doesn't this look magnificent?
Becky Harris added this to Surrounding the Fireplace with Texture
This gorgeous hunk of marble sets the tone for the entire room–clean lines, and a palette of white and shades of soft gray.
Natalie Myers added this to Great Material: Milky Marble
We automatically associate marble with kitchen or bathrooms, but why not your fireplace cladding for a dramatic effect, too? More: Cararra vs. Calacatta Marble: What's the Difference? Browse: Photos of marble in home design Products featuring marble for the home
Erin Lang Norris added this to Beat the Heat: Escape to the Basement
A marble wall keeps the space feeling cool enough to carry out the thought of an indoor fire. Crank the a/c if anybody questions you once it's lit, as many people don't put "fireplace" and "90-degree weather" in the same sentence.
Calacatta: A slab with dramatic gray veining makes a stunning fireplace surround. Calacatta is rarer than Carrara and is considered a luxury stone.
Marble. The quintessential modern living room would not be complete without a dramatic all-white Carrara marble fireplace.Design tip: Should you desire a touch more flair, the mill can book match your stone — that is, put all the veins of the marble to form a design.
