Using Stone as Art

When most people think of granite, onyx, soapstone, etc. they usually envision countertops, showers, fireplaces, and floors. But there’s a new trend out there that is opening peoples minds to the possibility of using stone as and art piece.

Yes, the very same picture that hangs on your wall could be replaced with a beautiful piece of stone! I’m actually surprised we haven’t been seeing this for a long time. People always say that stone countertops are like a work of art, and with all the colors and patterns, most stone slabs really resemble some of the most famous and praised art pieces. Pictured below is a piece that’s actually named after a very famous artist, you may have heard of him, its Van Gogh (this piece is also known as Blue Louise)!

If you have large space you’re trying to fill (maybe in a stair well, behind a bed, or over a fireplace mantel) this could be the perfect solution for you! Because all stone slabs are one of a kind, you can be assured that no one will have the same piece as you.

Another option is to use book-matched slab’s to cover a wall. Below is an example of someone using a few slabs like wallpaper. This is a beautiful and original idea that could raise the value of your home tremendously!
