ABC Stone entered the world of furniture, and chose interior designer Cara Woodhouse as their first collaborator in this new space. It’s the Classic Rock capsule collection, the first partnership for the two brands. You will find nine pieces in five marble colors – Grand Antique, Calacatta Viola, Arabescato Corchia, Pink Onyx and Silver Travertine. When paired with Italian stone blocks, the unrefined meets the refined.
In fact, the collection is an ode to Woodhouse’s personal obsession with stone. “Each piece definitely has a bit of my signature design style, very curvy and high. I’m always drawn to the circular, curved edges rather than the sharp edges. It’s more inviting to me and a feeling of luxury having a smooth feeling,” she shared.
The rock and roll theme juxtaposes the playfulness of the music with the elements of real rock. The Rock & Roll freestanding bathtub is probably the biggest statement, with marble and solid brass legs. The Rolling Stones solid vanity and the Solid Sound vanity are incredibly chic in their functions. Two other vanities – the Brass on Marble Styx and the Brass on Brass Styx – bring together curvaceous basins and hard angles of their surfaces. Pieces from the collection that could find a home outside of the bathroom are also included. The Soft Rock Sheepskin and Marble Side Chair, Rock Out Bench, and Rock Out Stool all use soft and strong mixed materials for a sleek aesthetic. Finally, the Beat side table is a great companion to just about any room mentioned above as it continues the conversation between materials.
Lyndsey Belle Tyler, Vice President of Marketing and Chief Creative Officer of ABC Stone, said, “Cara brought such a fun and instinctive air to the process. She just ran with the idea and we ended up with something that really elucidates the magic of stone as an element and really highlights its transformational qualities. This collection is literally stone art. We want those who incorporate these pieces into their projects and spaces to understand that they are investing in a bespoke sculptural object meant to spark wonder and joy. There will never be two identical pieces, because the stone from which they are created will never be the same.
