PINK ONYX

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Content -

Pink onyx has been used for cen­turies to make jew­ellery and dec­o­ra­tive ac­ces­sories – its nat­u­rally oc­cur­ring pat­terns make it a stun­ningly graphic sur­face ma­te­rial. And right now, de­sign brands are go­ing large on it. Ital­ian kitchen and bath­room spe­cial­ist Boffi has cre­ated a wash­basin for the ‘Bof­fi_­code’ col­lec­tion, made from a large stone-cov­ered plinth topped with a brushed brass basin – we love it in pink onyx ( be­low, from £11,820; bof­fiuk.com). Mean­while, Bax­ter has also dis­cov­ered the won­ders of the stone – it’s de­buted the ‘Tebe’ ta­ble (op­po­site), which is con­structed from just three slabs of pink onyx (from £2,182; bax­ter.it). Again, the less de­tail­ing, the bet­ter – this rosy gem speaks for it­self.

THE DEL­I­CATE PAT­TERNS IN PINK ONYX, FORMED FROM LAY­ERS OF QUARTZ, SILICA AND MOGANITE, MAKE IT A COVETABLE MA­TE­RIAL FOR STYLISH HOMES
