Showrooms are judged on their unique and interactive design. A prestigious jury of design and allied professionals have selected our New York City showroom, which was designed by STONEFOX Architects and planned in an exclusive partnership with RED Graniti Quarries, Vermont Quarries, and Colorado Quarries, from among dozens of entries received.

The Virtual Warehouse, combined with the award-winning, Ketra lighting system which precisely mimics the color temperature and intensity of light no matter the surroundings, enables our clients to accurately imagine the exact properties of their stone in the space for which it is being selected. The experience is further enhanced by our ongoing educational series “Cocktails and Conversations”. These classes provide continuing education credits for interior design professionals on a variety of stone-related topics. It is our intention for attendees to leave with a thorough understanding of the subjects covered and how they can be applied in the work going forward.

The awards were given out at KBIS 2019 on February 18, 2019 at the NKBA Design Competition and Industry Awards Show at the Encore Hotel in the Encore Ballroom.
