Friday, February 19th, 2010

Individual by nature and illustrious in its final shape, the use of stone in the home spa produces a captivating and tactile experience unmatched by other materials. Earthy, exotic, and sometimes extravagant, there are many beautiful types of stone that fuse effortlessly into home décor. The unique quality of these creations lies in the distinctive patterns created by the colorful veining in each piece of stone. No two pieces are alike – ever. Hand-carved using a hammer and chisel with respect to the nature of each piece, the designers delicately carve each form into a modern masterpiece.
