Marble & natural stone

Our marble, concrete and natural stone are living natural materials that are affected by heat, cold and light. The difference between the three types of stone can be particularly seen in the appearance, composition and structure. All are durable materials that will last for many years if treated with proper and loving care.

Read more about the benefits of the individual materials, as well as their maintenance requirements below.

    • Marble

      Marble is a natural material, where large blocks are cut and divided into smaller pieces that are later transformed into your furniture. Marble is available in various stone types and colours. But they all share nature's own qualities, which provide a durable piece of furniture that is only enhanced by continual care and love.

    • Pros and cons of marble

      Every material has a number of characteristics that make it distinctive. These can be an advantage, a disadvantage or both. Here you can read about the various advantages and disadvantages of marble.

    • Completely natural

      Marble's natural quality is also its obvious advantage. No two pieces of marble are alike, so every piece of marble furniture will be 100% unique. Marble is also a solid material with a certain weightiness, which can withstand a great deal if given the right care.

    • Affected by its surroundings

      Marble's natural quality is an advantage as well as a disadvantage. The natural and vibrant material creates a dynamic and fascinating interplay, but it also means that no two marble slabs are the same, so there may be large differences in your pieces of furniture, even if you order a piece of furniture in the same marble. The structure, the appearance and the markings will vary from time to time, which is why you have to love the unique quality marble offers.

    • A porous material

      Marble is a porous and vibrant material that cannot withstand high heat. Therefore, despite the marble's solid surface, you cannot place hot items directly on the slab. Always use a trivet and if you spill any liquid on the slab, it should be wiped immediately to prevent the liquid from penetrating the marble. Furthermore, our marble is polished and therefore not completely sealed on the surface, which is why care products and maintenance are important for the marble to maintain its colour and attractive surface.

    • Caring for your marble furniture

      To protect the marble surface, we recommend using Bolia Marble Polish. Even if your furniture is pre-treated when you receive it, it must still be treated both before and after you start using it, as otherwise damage to the surface may occur. Please note that marble cannot withstand acidic foods or detergents.

    • Concrete

      Concrete is a natural material and each slab is different from each other. The different colours seen on the concrete surface help give concrete its characteristic appearance, which is so vibrant and unique.

    • Pros and cons of concrete

      Every material has a number of characteristics that make it distinctive. These can be an advantage, a disadvantage or both. Here you can read about the various advantages and disadvantages of concrete.

    • Completely natural

      Concrete's natural quality is also its most obvious advantage. No two pieces of concrete are alike, so every piece of concrete furniture will be 100% unique. Concrete is also a solid material with a certain weightiness, which can withstand a great deal if given the right care. If you apply Stone Sealer to your furniture, it will have an almost infinite life.

    • Affected by its surroundings

      Concrete's natural quality is an advantage as well as a disadvantage. The natural and vibrant material creates a dynamic and industrial look that gives furniture with a concrete surface plenty of character, but it is also a condition that you have to know and love when you're dreaming of furniture in concrete.

    • Caring for your concrete furniture

      To protect a concrete surface, it is important to treat it from the start. For Bolia products, we recommend Bolia Stone Sealer, which seals the surface and acts as a protective membrane. Please note that concrete cannot withstand acidic foods or detergents.

    • Terrazzo and quartz

      Terrazzo is a composite material, where smaller stones are combined and made into one large stone. Quartz is also a composite material, where we have designed the composition ourselves. Both types of stone are influenced by their surroundings, but they are both durable by nature.

    • Pros and cons

      Every material has a number of characteristics that make it distinctive. These can be an advantage, a disadvantage or both. Here you can read about the various advantages and disadvantages of natural stone.

    • Unique and exclusive

      Both materials are a composite material consisting of natural waste stones that are blended together into one stone slab, giving each material a distinct and exclusive expression. The natural quality is the obvious advantage, which is emphasised by the durability of both materials. Furthermore, the quartz is made specifically for us, and therefore has a completely unique character that you won't find anywhere else.

    • Natural with open surface

      Both materials contain elements that are sourced in and from nature, therefore they have a vibrant and organic expression that, despite their tough exterior, needs the right care product and maintenance to last. Terrazzo has an open surface that requires Stone Sealer, while quartz is polished and needs Marble Polish. Giving your furniture in terrazzo or quartz the proper care will ensure it almost lasts forever.

    • Caring for your furniture

      Terrazzo and quartz are both durable materials, but each require their own treatment. Terrazzo has an open surface that requires sealing with Stone Sealer, while quartz has a polished surface that needs Bolia Marble Polish. We recommend our own care products as they are specifically developed for our materials.
