ONYX AS A TRENDING STONE

ONYX AS A TRENDING STONE

Onyx is one of the most beautiful and luxurious natural stones, it often looks more like a gemstone. This greatly under-utilized material is versatile and elegant allowing it to look good almost anywhere. As opposed to other natural stones onyx is used more frequently for creative applications rather than functional ones.

Over the past few years, designers and architects have rediscovered the exciting effects that can be done with this stone, turning it into their stone of choice. Here we tell you why it has become a trending stone and why it is so artistic and edgy.

1. It’s available in multiple colors

Onyx comes in various shades which range from light gold to deep red. No two slabs ever look the same so the exotic colors and vein patterns give onyx a very distinctive look. Onyx slabs have some of the most unique movement and pattering giving them great value, beauty, and intrigue. Some of the most popular colors are yellow, jade, pink, tan, tangerine, and pale blue.

 

2. It’s translucent

Onyx surface can be backlit to illuminate a space and create a warm ambiance. Light penetrates through the stone radiating a soft ethereal glow that enhances the color and veining patterns of the stone.

3. Has multiple applications within a space

Onyx is generally used to accentuate a space including walls and countertops. Some of our favorite applications include wall accents behind the bed, as backlit decor in lobbies or entrance foyer, to create a spa-like atmosphere in the bathroom vanity or mirror wall, to highlight the treads of a staircase, within the design of a bar counter or kitchen island or as furniture applications with or without backlighting.  

 

4. It has a luxurious look

Onyx, whether lit or unlit adds a touch of modernity to any home style influencing it with a touch of luxury and glamour
