SECRET WEAPON SERIES: SLAB-YARD STEALS. 

by brittaneyelise

Often with my design projects, I face challenges beyond function and dimension or space restraints. My solution? If the budget allows for it: GO CUSTOM.

Custom furniture companies are everywhere, and I’ve designed some absolutely beautiful one-of-a-kind pieces with some of the best craftsmen and craftswomen across the globe for some of my clients. One of my secret weapons? SLAB-YARDS.

Marble, quartz, onyx, and other natural stones quarried from Italy, Portugal, Spain, Egypt, Greece, and so many other beautiful countries inspire and stun me — hence: stone slab-yards being one of my favorite places to visit for true treasure! I’ve built some relationships that have allowed me to take my picks on some brand new slab shipments for dining tables or countertops… and allowed me to poke around at some of the remnants that fabricators have left behind, to create my own custom side tables or book shelves out of what others were ready to toss as garbage once they got what they needed out of a large slab.

Natural stone is an incredibly beautiful source that I encourage in bringing the outdoors—in.

 



I promise to share with you another secret on natural stone soon… my personal spin on how I like to incorporate it into fashion and interiors in smaller ways and have witnessed its healing power qualities transform lives! (not kidding)…stay tuned!
