Lagos Azul pairs really well with other natural stones, maybe it's because it isn't a really busy stone. It looks so beautiful with the Honey Onyx vessel sinks in the photo below from Maldona Tile & Marble.
Lagos Azul is available in 2 cm and 3 cm slabs as well as tile, exterior cladding, and sinks.
