Plates and trays made of natural stone
An application of stone that gives an original touch to the table during special dinners and even day to day ones: plates made of natural stone. Apart from the varieties that exist in a traditional crockery set (sizes, colours, qualities), be it in slate, marble or granite, the possibilities of elaboration in forms and textures are unimaginable. Below is a small sample of this unique application.

The fair Rocalia, held last December, 2017 in Lyon (France), served as a window to creativity and new applications in natural stone. One of these applications is furniture in homes.

Stone dining / office tables
How many middle class homes exist on the planet? Perhaps difficult to calculate, since the definition of middle class varies from person to person, country to country. An approximate number, with ' middle class' being defined in the western sense, would perhaps lead to number somewhere between 300 to 500 million. Assuming every such home has a dining table, this would also be the number of dining tables in the world.
Turkish stones for gardens
Stones add that special look to any garden in any house. That rustic, natural irregular shape of every stone helps to make every home garden unique in its own way. From Turkey comes a new variety of garden stones: a dazzling range of diverse colours and shapes. Our thanks to the Turkish company Med-Sinai for the photographs.
