Stone has played a role in traditional homes in New England since colonial times. While most colonial American homes were built primarily from wood, stone was a vital element used in these early homes. Stone chimneys were a major focal point and fireplaces were used for heating as well as cooking.

As the country grew in stature and affluence, stone began to play a role in interior design. Wealthy families could import and incorporate marble, slate, and brick into floors, mantle pieces, and exposed stone walls. Today, stone is an affordable design element with both indoor and outdoor use being common.

Stone Veneers

Natural stone has moved into the home from the more traditional use in patios and driveways. Today, natural stone veneers allow homeowners to incorporate stone into their home’s interior design easily and affordably. In fact, stone veneers are at home in any room of the house.

Living rooms

Stone offers a way to add a dramatic flair to your living space. Whether it’s as a fireplace surround, or an entire accent wall, Natural stone can bring the drama and depth of the outdoors into your home.

Wine Cellars

If you are looking to create an authentic look to your wine cellar, creating an enticing environment using natural slate, granite, or other natural stone veneer is a great way to accomplish this task.

Accent Walls

Create a unique dramatic entrance to your home with stone veneers.
Create a warm transition from the outdoors into your home with a stone entryway or accent wall.


Staircase walls can be a great place for a finishing touch of elegance, either with a classic or more rustic feel. An area often neglected in design plans can bring a such a beautiful accent on touch of style to your home.
