White It Is…



Well—we finally got our first snow storm of the year, here in Minnesota. In honor of the white stuff, I thought we’d look at some more white—countertops that is.  Maybe these whites will be more appealing to you than the white outside? They are at least to me.

Let’s take a look at some inside whites:

Granite Countertops—Spotlight On Sorella



In this blog, I wanted to focus on the color Sorella, which is quarried in India.

Sorella Granite

Sorella contains tones of brown, black, cream, and gray that provide interesting flowing pattern that can be seen throughout the stone. Sorella also contains areas of quartz, that give the stone some depth and character. Sorella would work well for a kitchen island, or countertops, as well as a bar top, or fireplace surround. Sorella is one of our exclusive colors.

Here’s a photo of our current stock:

The show was held Thursday, February 24th at the Minneapolis Convention Center.

Following are a few photo’s of the event:
