Stones that Rock

The natural trend is here to stay, and stones are making a design impact. Stones are a great source of inspiration because they are readily found, beautiful, and sturdy. The photograph above is from a trip I took to South America. These stones were purposely placed on a mountain in Peru for religious offerings. I thought these stone stacks were an amazing resemblance to the stone items found in the market today. I believe stones offer a sense of peace and calm, which may be the reason designers continue to use them. What other stone items have you seen?

Items from Bleu Nature - pebble candlesticks, towels and bath poufs, ceramic dish, and pebble lamp.

VivaTerra stone designs - Stone Cairns and Vases, Stone Towel Hook, and River Stone Mat.

Spa Stone Soaps, in scents Green Tea and Ginger & Mint, from Gianna Rose Atelier.

Livingstones designed by Smarindesign - over-sized pebbles used as practical floor cushions for indoor and outdoor use.

Brown Wooden Stone Print from etsy seller smallstump.
