Opustone now just a stone’s throw away


Designers and architects in Broward and Palm Beach counties looking for unusual natural stone products often flocked to Opustone’s showroom in the Miami Design District. Their commute and yours has become shorter with the opening of Opustone’s new showroom and warehouse in Fort Lauderdale.

The new high-end designer showroom, which is open to the public, features an extensive collection of premium natural stones. Opustone is the exclusive Florida distributor of several lines:

Antoini Luigi Precioustone Collection includes Petrified Wood, Wild Tiger’s Eye, Gemstone and Black Obsidian Volcanic Glass as well as rare colored and naturally translucent agates and quartz crystal.

Benetti Stone Philosophy MOSStile Collection is a nontoxic, water-based resin that is the base for a vertical maintenance garden created by a natural lichen. It does not require irrigation, fertilizing or pruning. It comes in Menta (deep green), Liquiriza (slate gray), Vanilla (creamy ivory) and Wasabi (bright green). Custom colors are also available.

Pepetua Terrazo is a low maintenance and long lasting material made from a combination of marble and granite chips bound together by cement and smoothed to a polished finish reminiscent of vintage Art Deco floors.

Quintessa Mosaics includes more than 70 designs made of marble, limestone, basalt, glass and ceramic that can be used on floors and walls.

Santamargherita is made of agglomerates, which are engineered products made from natural marble chips and bound with resin. They are uniform in color, have superior technical characteristics and are affordabale.
