A stone benchtop in your kitchen has many advantages. This natural material is resistant to knocks and scrapes, offers a solid work surface, and brings a sense of permanence to a design. In addition, the rich, varied look of rugged stone never goes out of fashion.

Stone Warehouse has a broad range of granite and quartz for kitchen benchtops, bathroom vanities, fire surrounds and hearths. Sales and marketing manager Ross Jennings says the company sources granite from different countries around the world, principally from outlets in Latin and South America, Scandinavia and the African continent.

Casting a wide net means Stone Warehouse offers surfaces that stand out aesthetically. The Fyfe Kitchens-designed kitchen seen here is a case in point.

"We created these Antique Brown granite countertops in two layers, with a stainless steel feature inserted between them," says Jennings. "The detail is only part of the story this unusual granite has a significant quartz content that sparkles and catches the eye. The owner installed extra lighting especially to take advantage of its singular properties."
