LivingStone Introduces Nature-Inspired Marble Series

Posted on 13 April 2020 by cradmin3

LivingStone Surfaces announced the addition of the Marble Series to its surface collection. Inspired by natural stone, the Marble Series consists of three organic-veined patterns including Calacatta Milan, Calacatta Amalfi, and Carrara Rinato. This expands the company’s total offering to 97 robust colors.

“The Marble Series is the next generation of solid surface,” said Ed Rogers, Executive Vice President of US Surfaces. “It has the handsome appearance of naturally-veined stone with the remarkable durability, low-maintenance, and seaming properties found in our signature solid surfaces.”

According to the company the LivingStone Marble Series is a unique solid surface product that is highly versatile and suited for both commercial and residential applications, including vertical wall cladding.

“Innovation meets function with this impressive series of veined products. It looks like marble, yet it cuts just like wood — The Marble Series is easy to fabricate and provides stunning results in any application,” added Rogers.
The Marble Series boasts the same dependable characteristics found in all LivingStone Solid Surfaces — it is non-porous so germs and odors do not penetrate, is easy to clean and maintain, and is impact resistant. Two of the directional-veined patterns in this series, Calacatta Milan and Calacatta Amalfi, are available in book-match sheets to extend its installation flexibility.

Fabricator Profile: Classic Marble Design Focuses on the Customer Experience

Posted on 06 January 2016 by cradmin

Solid-Surface-300x261Even though its closest competitor is 27 miles away, Classic Marble Design, Inc. in Clinton, Okla., places an emphasis on customer service. The sales manager, Esther Switzer, looks at customer service before anything else, whether it is improving the look of the showroom or adopting policies for less-intrusive installations.

Classic Marble Design estimates that 85 percent of the company’s business is through word of mouth. The only marketing done by the company are radio spots on a local station and an ad in a local classified newspaper, Penny News. Repeat customers are extremely common. “Virtually everyone we do business with eventually returns for an additional project,” claimed Switzer.

One of the tools employed by Classic Marble Design is the “goody bag.” At the end of each job, customers are left with a bag that includes brochures on care and maintenance, a $50 gift certificate for a future referral, a scented candle, a thank-you card and a survey about the products purchased and services performed. The goody bag serves a double purpose in that it also smooths the way for installers to ask for the check to cover the balance of the bill.

Classic Marble Design is located about 90 miles west of Oklahoma City and was founded in 1997 by John and Janelle Russell and Brett and Marci Russel. Most of the jobs done are residential, but some commercial work is also performed. The company works with a full range of materials and brands, including Corian and LivingStone solid surface, Cambria and Radianz quartz, granite and other natural stone.
