About our swatches and materials
All the materials used in the production of our fireplaces are exclusive to Montpellier, which makes your fireplace even more unique and special. Samples of the different marble colours can be viewed at your local Montpellier stockist.
Marble is a natural material and variations in colour, veining and texture must be expected. These features are natural characteristics and must not be considered defects. Stops and fills are a normal part of the production process and where necessary are carried out by expert stonemasons, so they should not be perceived as faults.
In the interest of continuing product development, we reserve the right to make changes at any time, without notice, to prices, colours, material, specification and to discontinue models.
Colour and shade reproduction in our images are as accurate as processes will allow and are intended as a guide only. Always request a current sample as stone varies from batch to batch.
All sizes are approximate. E&OE.
- Bianco Persiano
Bianco Persiano, a white marble with grey veining has been Montpellier’s signature marble now for many years. With its supply now severely restricted, it is rare and costly and any fireplace made from this material is the ultimate luxury.
- Crème Classico
Creme Classico marble features warm honey and caramel tones, rich veining and touches of onyx. A more exciting alternative to the ubiquitous Crema Marfil, it is polished entirely by hand in order to achieve the unique finish for which Monpellier is renowned.
- Persiano Limestone
Persiano Limestone is a robust creamy white material which is more a dolomite than a limestone. It is characterised by a soft grey bloom and occasional speckles, and does vary from one batch to another so you are advised to request a current sample.
- Desert Cream
This is a new material from Montpellier which we have managed to secure from a recently discovered quarry. It is a soft cream colour with very light gold thread veining and, as with our other marbles, entirely polished by hand. Desert Cream does have variation in veining from one batch to another so you are advised to request a current sample.
