By the end of 2020, marble will have replaced the white marble countertop in nearly every home in the United States.
Marble counters, however, will be replaced by a new marble-themed color: White marble.
According to The New York Times, the new marble is designed to complement the iconic marble counter in the lobby of the Trump Hotel in New York City.
Marble countertops will have a “marble look,” The Times reports.
Marble will be used to “adorn marble counters and counter tops in high-end homes, restaurants, retail stores and other public spaces.”
The Times also notes that the new color is being “designed to appeal to consumers in a new era of the post-white era,” which has seen the rise of high-fashion, designer, and upscale brands such as Hermès, Dolce & Gabbana, and the designer-turned-fashion mogul Ralph Lauren.
Marble was first introduced to the public in 2003, and now appears on approximately 1.5 million marble counters around the world.
The new marble color will be available in all marble styles, including the white, the light gray, and other colors.
The Times notes that “there’s no word yet on when and how marble will be phased out in the U.S.”
But the new white marble is already being used on some marble counter tops, including at the Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Florida.
In May, Trump reportedly bought a marble counter at Mar-A-Lago for $12.5M.
It’s unclear if the new Marble color is part of the sale or if Trump is going to use it in the future.
The Marble color also appears to be a major draw for a new line of marble counter kits, which will be made available in 2018, the Times reports, and are expected to be used by consumers to decorate their marble counters.
