Connecting our homes to nature is a basic fundamental of life. Before modern times, there was no other choice. And now, with the increasing awareness of sustainability and green design, we are witnessing a return to the use of natural stone in our personal living spaces. It is durable, ages gracefully, has no off gassing, and has an enduring life cycle – all qualities that make it an ideal environmental choice.
Natural stone also provide limitless design versatility with the flexibility to manipulate the texture, size and cut to create your own design personality, often within the same stone variety.
When only the best will do, natural stones are the natural choice. What better way to bring nature back into our homes than sustainable, locally sourced natural stone veneer? After all, Mother Nature is the ultimate designer.
Our natural stone collection includes many styles of locally quarried native stone.
This month we are highlighting Edenhurst natural stone veneer. It is from the same Ontario family as last month’s sister stone Essex County, but with a more balanced colour palette of buff, taupe, warm grey and soft tiger striping. The result is a soothing presence that is harmonious in any design aesthetic.
Edenhurst features an ashlar style cut, which means it is more or less cut true on all sides to allow for a tighter fit and minimal mortar joint. This has a tendency to present a more formal look while still maintaining the rustic appeal of stone. It is truly a timeless classic.
