Step It Up
Selective use of a manufactured gray limestone veneer by Glen-Gery helps tie together this house's varied exterior cladding materials, including red brick and traditional siding. The stone veneer sets a natural-looking outdoor color palette to complement materials that might otherwise clash.
Consistent in the Kitchen
From far away, this finely cut natural marble veneer looks like a single hue, but upon closer inspection you can see all the natural shades emerge. The stones are cut, tumbled, and acid-washed, resulting in a warm and luxurious material that is perfect for creating a spa-like setting in a bathroom.
Down the River
Large river rocks pose a minor cladding challenge in their natural state. A manufactured stone variety, however, re-creates the look of the large, round rocks—in sizes up to 15 inches—without the heft, resulting in a product that allows the visually weighty material to soar above a fireplace mantel.
