Stone Trends 2020 is Here

We are delighted to release the fourth annual edition of the highly popular Stone Trends publication. Originally produced in 2017, Stone Trends, issued in both digital and hard copy versions, has become a much-anticipated event.

The intention of Stone Trends has been to provide both industry professionals and consumers alike with a brief insight into what is happening or anticipated in the masonry business, particularly as it relates to products and design.

In previous issues we have highlighted such things as the popularity of black and white, the increasing acclaim of west coast chic in architectural design, the move toward clean, linear lines and the growing acceptance of mixing and matching a variety of stone types and other exterior building products.

The 2020 edition of Stone Trends continues the tradition of featuring the latest and greatest. You can look forward to the Evolution in Masonry that places the focus on such things as precast, frogged units, and the combing of residential with architectural stone. We have also featured Smith Stone, a new product from Shouldice for those looking for the tradition of stone in a modern format. Stone isn’t just for houses. You’ll discover in Corporate Influence how the business, government and institutional sectors optimize the use of stone.

Thin stone veneer continues to be a popular choice for many applications. Read how Fusion Stone demonstrates this fact beautifully. The Residential Feature provides a stunning example of how breathtakingly our stone more than meets the exacting demands for contemporary elegance.

If you receive a hard copy of Stone Trends, we hope you enjoy it.
