No floor covering is older than natural stone, more beautiful or more earthy. Natural
stone was ancient man and woman’s design element, a primary material of construction
and an original medium of creativity.
We know stone and understand well its features, advantages and benefits. We know
how it is created and how to integrate it into your home and lifestyle.
Now, We want you to know.
We want you to know all about natural stone, to understand, learn and experience
this historic and versatile product so you can decide if it’s the smartest
flooring choice for you.
Why design with natural stone?
Well, for a number of reasons.
Natural stone is strong and stable to live with. It exudes a rich, organic, beautiful
surface and has a confident, timeless “presence” in any room.
Rub your hand across any natural stone product. Can you feel the eons of time it
took to produce this natural wonder of Mother Earth?
It’s a fact. The formative process for natural stone began millions of years
ago, deep beneath the surface of the earth.
A combination of heat and pressure created blocks of natural stone, including granite,
marble, travertine, limestone, and slate.
As the earth's crust began to grow and erode, it pushed minerals up from its core,
forming massive rock deposits, which we refer to as “quarries”.
Walk across a natural stone floor and tread on the same material quarried and constructed
by ancient people of nobility and notoriety.
From ancient monuments like the pyramids in Egypt and the majestic Greek and Roman
temples, to the great civilizations of India and China, natural stone has been an
important part of architecture throughout history.
