A solid slab of stone packs organic flair with pattern and texture.
Tip: There's a way to do this if you're on a tight budget: Call your local stone and solid surface showroom, then ask them to put you in touch with a fabricator. When speaking to the fabricator, ask if you can visit their "boneyard." Sounds morbid, I know, but it simply refers to an area packed with solid slab remnants. Many times, these leftover parts have been paid for in full; it's likely they'll cut you a great deal for the materials, then you can apply the savings toward the fabrication.
