What stones do you think are trending right now?

Bold and Beautiful is what I believe is trending. Everyone is asking for that stand-out piece of marble. Something with a punch, something that grabs your attention. Whites, with navy and gold or black and whites. While these can be bold, beautiful, and elegant, they are also classic and timeless. You can’t go wrong with these stones. I say the Calacatta Paonazzo and Panda are still top choices everyone is interested in.

What stone are you really loving right now?

Wow, for me personally this is a hard question to answer. For me, there is no specific stone I can say I love over another. Stone is a passion for me and I love them all.

To me every stone is unique however in the end it all depends on the application. What makes a stone work for me, is how it seamlessly fits into a room with all the other materials and how it plays off the wood and fabrics. Your stone should be the crown jewel of the room, and for me, there are just too many to only pick one.

Have you seen any recent projects that show any of these materials beautifully?

Yes in fact I would love to share some of the photos of a couple of my favorite stones (all stones are my favorite!) But let’s start with these two: Calacatta Paonazzo Marble and Panda Marble.

Lapitec | For those looking forward

Imagine a surfacing material made of 100% minerals that contains no resin or petroleum derivatives and holds up to heat, cold, scratching, and etching while being both anti-microbial and hydrophilic. What if this material also served as a photocatalyst that cleaned the air by reacting with light to break down and eliminate harmful pollutants?

Welcome to the world of Lapitec.

Lapitec is a ‘green’ material both in its production and in its final form. It is completely inert and does not release any pollutants or VOCs into the environment. Further, the product life cycle is reversible, meaning that the material may be destroyed and turned back into the same mineral powder from which it was created, thus making it able to be reused in the production process and completely recyclable.

Lapitec is a full-bodied sintered stone that can be used for:

Interior and exterior cladding, flooring, indoor or outdoor kitchen countertops, pool copings, and ventilated façades. Available in a variety of thicknesses, textures, and extra-large slab sizes, Lapitec has through-body color and patterning, allowing for ease of use in countless applications and a multitude of creative edge options.

Lapitec – Innovation and design without boundaries.
