Throughout our ten years in business, we have seen some truly stunning homes over the years. The ones that always seem to make us do a double-take usually contain some kind of unique stone or composite accents. Each stone is like its own little work of art – taking kitchens, bathrooms, entryways and more to the next level. Whether it’s a hint of quartz or a complete marble overhaul, we are wild about stones and composite, and always jump at the chance to incorporate them into our designs!
There are a handful of Houston showrooms we rely on to supply the highest quality materials for our clients, and we are so thankful to call them our partners. Want to know how we give our designs the looks that really pop? Keep reading to learn more about our favorite stone and composite showrooms in Houston!
Vivaldi opened its doors in Houston in 2002 and leaves no stone unturned (literally!) when it comes to bringing the finest collections to their showroom. They specialize in stone for countertops, flooring, backsplashes, custom mosaics and more – a truly extensive collection of granite, marble, travertine, onyx, semiprecious stones, glass and other unique materials to help us bring our clients’ interiors to life. They are also home to the largest collection of superior natural stone in Houston, which we rely on regularly to help elevate our designs. We love working with this knowledgeable group!

The Aria showroom looks more like an art gallery than a stone shop and that’s because its curated collection of luxurious, hand-selected natural stone is from some of the most exclusive quarries in the world. This group places a huge emphasis on the actual experience of choosing each and every stone, and as soon as you walk through the doors, you understand the origin and history of the materials are just as important to the team as the design. This space and style of working is so inspirational to our team, and we can’t say enough wonderful things about Aria.
