Modern Stone Age Fantasy
When sleek modern design meets smooth natural stone, the results are often show-stopping. Contemporary design shows off polished stone and even concrete surfaces to their best advantage. Need some inspiration? Marble is a classic choice, offering sophisticated luxury in a range of style and colors. White marble makes a statement as the topper to this intriguing “puzzle” set of six tables, while dark stone defines the geometric facets of home accents like this Black Marble Polyhedron…and of course, the natural ripples and striations of marble inspired one of our favorite abstract pieces of accent artwork. Need a little more inspiration? Think onyx, slate, alabaster, granite, soapstone, quartz, limestone, even engineered stone and polished concrete have a place here. This elegant little concrete stool could easily double as modern sculpture, and is part of a line that’s specially treated for both indoor and outdoor use–proving that ultra-modern style belongs anywhere, indoors or out! Read on for more design inspiration using stone, and don’t miss our roundup of REstyle Picks for even more “rock star” style!
While we love the smooth, cool sophistication of classic marble in everything from floor tiles to tables to lamps, there are a whole world of other natural stone options out there waiting to be discovered! For a truly unique focal point, try something a little out of the ordinary. The REstyle team loves the way this White River Stone Stool finds an unusual way to incorporate rock by casting separate small pebbles in a larger block of resin. As another beautiful option, this Cheese Stone Coffee Table (“cheese stone,” aka deeply pitted travertine, offers an unusual and beautiful surface that’s sure to grab attention) is a perfect piece to start with.
