Natural stone is as old as the hills, but it still sits perfectly well in a contemporary home, both inside and out.

This waterfront house, designed by architect Vernon Pierce of Pierce Architectural Group, has a distinct nautical reference, reflecting the boating interests of the owners. It is anchored by soaring, three-story stone columns clad in Virginia Ledgestone¢ from Natural Stone Veneers International, Inc (NSVI) .

The Virginia Ledgestone columns extend through into the interior, blurring the boundaries between inside and out. They also give the home a dramatic textural presence, which contrasts the sleek modernity of the rest of the interior.

NSVI says stone facing is a technique that dates back centuries, but in recent years the company has developed and patented equipment that creates thin slices of stone and 90° corner pieces. Stone can be cut and installed in a fraction of the time it would once have taken.

Because NSVI natural stone is light, it also saves installation and shipping costs, and it negates the need for heavy structural supports. The stone is highly durable, scratch resistant, colorfast and weathers beautifully.

NSVI offers more than 60 product lines quarried from around the world. These are categorized into 11 collections.
