There’s a reason marble is popular in interior design. Many developers and designers use white Carrera or Calacatta marble in their buildings to appeal to the widest possible audience, however, some designers are thinking outside the box by incorporating unique colored marbles. Here are three properties in New York that are using rare and colorful marbles and stones in their new properties to charm potential residents.
Designed by David Chipperfield Architects, this penthouse in The Bryant is listed for $16.3M and has a double-height loggia overlooking the Empire State Building, however, it’s the fiery red jasper marble fireplace that is turning heads. Making a bold statement in the living room, the warm and inviting material features a dark red background, blushes of dark grey and crisscrosses of gold and cream colored veining.

Marble in a bathroom goes together like black and white, but this subtle purple-veined marble used in this residence is the combination you have been looking for.
