Humans have used the natural resource of stone as a decorative element since prehistory. From humble cave drawings to sleek backlit quartzite counters, the decorative use of stone has come a very long way.
Stone remains a popular design choice because of its durability and beauty. Style and color continue to change, of course. Let’s look at a few of our favorites stone applications.
The leathered finish almost eliminates reflective glare, further grounding these earthy tones and establishing warmth and comfort. The copper banding provides just enough visual contrast to highlight the shape and depth of the fireplace.
Stone furniture is gaining a strong presence in furniture designs. This side table is available in marble and two travertine finishes. Its strong modern presence is tempered by the elegance of marble. For a modern aesthetic, feature it as a solo piece or top it with a lamp, books or picture frames for a more traditional flair.
Stone doesn’t need to be formal or stuffy. These travertine bookends are great example of the playful forms that are gaining in popularity.
