REFERENCE: LEGACY NATURAL STONE SURFACES - SHOWROOM DISPLAY
1. What is the one thing you want people to know about you (your design)?
When you are a retailer, it is very important to display a few styles and layout options for your clients. It allows them to see a variety and to get the product and look that they want.
2. Tell us about the design; give a profile of your business and the project Viatera was used.
We are a natural stone gallery and specialize in design, natural stone fabrication and installation. We offer quartz, granite, marble, and soapstone to our clients.
3. What was the source of inspiration for your project?
Creating a contemporary style display in a traditional style community.
4. What was the concept behind your design? What makes it unique?
We wanted to show our clients a style that they are not used to seeing in our market. What makes the display so unique is the island. The island is a custom built, 3cm, mitered, free-standing piece of art that is one-of-a-kind.
5. What are today's design trends you witness? How were these trends conveyed on your design?
One trend we are witnessing in larger markets is espresso-colored cabinetry with light neutral countertops. We filled a market void in our area by providing a contemporary style for our clients to view. Many clients are visual people, so when they see a well-executed display they can then visualize it in their home and want the look.
6. What are the unique features/ characteristics you find in Viatera?
Viatera offers a unique design pattern in their surfaces that is not replicated in any other manufacturer.
7. Briefly explain your unique experience with Viatera.
It has been a positive experience with Viatera. It is great quartz product and many of our clients are attracted to the array of pattern options.
8. Is there any significant local public event or seasonal event that could correlate with the design?
We hosted a charity event in our showroom the end of November and found that design, style, and layout allowed us to display holiday themed décor, while allowing our guests to navigate the area easily due to the layout of the display.
