Stone Age Designs announces plans to introduce Scagliola Stone™ to architects and designers of high rise construction projects. Stone Age Designs, an Atlanta-based maker of Scagliola Stone™ Fireplace Mantels, and Kitchen Hoods has opened a new commercial division targeting upscale office buildings, financial institutions, apartments, hotels, and retail centers that demand the beauty of Hand-Crafted Scagliola Stone™.
With the soaring number of buildings under construction nationwide, the high rise buildings market is definitely a hot niche within the slowing construction industry. According to Emporis (2007-08), there are 22 high-rise buildings under construction in Atlanta alone, and another 16 high rise projects have been already approved by city officials. Most of these upscale buildings are clearly aimed at a high-end clientele who know quality, craftsmanship and want the best. Clearly it is the same clientele who know and seek out the Scagliola Stone™ Fireplace Mantels and Kitchen Hoods from Stone Age Designs for their fine homes.
Founded in the late 1990's by Thierry François, Stone Age Designs offers a significant product portfolio that ranges from Hand-Carved Limestone and Scagliola Stone™ Fireplace Mantels to Hand-Crafted Scagliola Stone™ Kitchen Hoods and Architectural Accents. Superb craftsmanship is the trademark that brings people to the Stone Age Designs Showcase, and the reason more and more discriminating architects and homeowners select their designs over a cast stone mantel, kitchen hood, or concrete products.
Inspired by his work over the years with architects and designers, Thierry François has brought his masterful eye and unrivaled expertise to the creation of both the Scagliola Stone™ Fireplace Mantel and Kitchen Hood collections. Thierry and his team have drawn from a variety of historical periods and styles, adhering to authentic architectural standards and proportions, to present exquisite lines of Scagliola Stone™ fireplace mantels and kitchen hoods that provide elegant alternatives to designs like those in pre-cast stone.
With a variety of scales and styles, from grand and majestic to delicate and understated; from classical to country French; the Scagliola Stone™ Fireplace Mantels, Kitchen Hoods, and Architectural Accents from Stone Age Designs are sure to enhance any room whether in a grand mansion or a penthouse apartment. In little more than a decade, the Hand-Crafted Scagliola Stone™ products of Stone Age Designs have become market leaders and are well-known among homeowners, as well as the design, architectural and builder communities.
