Maestro Mosaics, a Chicago-based company by Granite & Marble Resources, Inc., has introduced “Stonewood.” Made of real stone and marking its entrance into the U.S. for the first time, “Stonewood” combines an enhanced, luxurious look of rich wood with the durability and functionality of stone, reports the manufacturer.

According to Maestro Mosaics, “Stonewood” offers an alternative to exotic hardwood. Just as there are many species of wood, there are now several species of “Stonewood” because of the different types of quarries found around the world.

“Simply stated: stone lasts forever,” said Robert Briggs, Vice President and General Manager of Maestro Mosaics by Granite & Marble Resources, Inc. “I found stones that were exotic wood-like in appearance, then took it a step further and manufactured it into ‘Stonewood.’ We are ecstatic to be the first to present it to consumers and the interior design trade.”

“Stonewood” is available in seven exotic colors: Mahogany, Pecan, Rosewood, Ebony, Lacewood, Bamboo and Cypress. The planks are available in four sizes: 4- x 18-, 4- x 24-, 4- x 30- and 4- x 36-inches, and can be installed in thin-set or mud-set, as in all natural stone. For coordination with countertops, Maestro Mosaics will offer available matching slabs in ¾- and 1 ¼-inch thickness.
