    I am so sorry didn't answer your question. It is a slate stone in front of the fireplace as code requires non-combustible material. The two benches on either side of this slate are wood stained.
    Thank you for your question.

    It's a beautiful piece of slate - I thought it was poured concrete. Nicely done!

    Hello this was a custom sized sofa from the manufacturer, TCS. We increased the back height so that it was more comfortable for the homeowners. Thank you for your question.

    What did you use on the floor to match the tile but be more pleasant to walk over? I like this look for the fireplace but also have a hearth that is floor level so have been struggling to know what to use there to match the fireplace tile. Thanks.

    The stone is a stacked slate. Thank you for your question!
  • kvancura
    Is the stacked slate a real stone or a veneer?

    Hello. I believe it is extending into the room by approximately 28-30". Thank you for your question.

      Ledge on bottom. Run from windows to left side of fireplace?

      By the kitchen looking out a window instead of a sliding glass door.
