Home News Marazzi launches Marble Obsession

Dallas, Texas—Marazzi launched its Marble Obsession porcelain and ceramic tile collection. The new collection is a marble-look assortment featuring an array of three marble visuals for floor, wall, countertop and shower floors.

The collection’s color palette ranges from a classic white with dramatic gold veining to a grey featuring white striations, the company said. According to Marazzi, Marble Obsession’s mosaics include a 2 x 5 picket, 8-inch hex and a 6-inch arabesque and is made in the USA.

“Being surrounded by a beautiful environment makes us feel better and contributes to our well-being, but it is interesting to note that the concept of luxury is changing,” said Shelly Halbert, director of product design, Dal-Tile Corporation. “Luxury in 2021 does not mean opulent and redundant luxe but rather creating harmony and class. Luxury is being expressed through high-end materials such as marbles, precious woods and expensive fabrics combined with good-quality craftsmanship to add sophisticated warmth to a space and sense of intimacy.”

Halbert added that marble looks over the last three years have become a mainstream trend as white marbles appeal to the traditional segments while designers and consumers are choosing colorful and high-pattern material choices. “The reason for the popularity of marble is due to its timeless elegant visual and its versatility in both modern and traditional interiors,” she said. “Why choose ‘marble-look porcelain’ such as Marazzi’s new Marble Obsession? It wonderfully brings the look of luxury into a space at a more affordable price and greater with durability/cleanability than natural marble.”

The following are the visuals from the collection.
