Stone Works Wonders

If you’ve ever taken a shovel to the soil in Pennsylvania, you can understand why bluestone and brownstone are two of the nation’s great exports. The ground is filled with stones and rocks, ripe for crafting home designs. If you reside in a locale that is not chock-full of rocks, you are still able to get the rugged appearance by searching farther afield.

Designers and architects have produced all sorts of interesting ways to utilize rock furniture, artwork installations and flooring to get organic flavor. Some are practical, some are just amazing, and many others are both. Have a look.
