Current Obsessions: Our 9 Favorite Stacked Stone Installs

October 26, 2016

If you want to design a space with textural details and visual interest, consider using stacked stone. This natural material adds a tactile and stylish element that can't be created with any other product. Stacked stone comes in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and colors, so you’ll be sure to find something that best suits your style. For an even more powerful impression, you can combine it with other materials, such as metal, glass, and wood. 

MSI’s collection of stacked stone panels covers a wide range of projects, from rustic retreats to modern rooms. So, to inspire your next project, we’ve rounded up our nine favorite stacked stone installs. 

#1 A Fabulous Bathroom Fireplace

What’s more spa-like than soaking in the tub while enjoying the ambiance of a fire? This contemporary master bathroom takes luxury to a higher level with the addition of a stunning fireplace clad in Arctic White Marble Stacked Stone panels.

#2 Amazing Accent Shelving

A modern bathroom that’s both functional and pretty can make you want to pamper yourself for even longer. Rather than a small storage niche, opt for a beautiful built-in next to the bathtub, and back it with a gorgeous material like Golden Honey Pencil Stacked Stone panels. Use it to keep crisp white towels and a jar of bath salts nearby and also display other delightful items such baskets and vases. But be careful not to overfill your shelves, or you may block these stunning strips of gold and gray quartzite. 

#3 Incredible Indoor-Outdoor Living

A mix of metals, wood, stone, and textiles create a cozy, homey feel. The fireplace and outdoor kitchen are textured with Rustic Gold Stacked Stone panels. With its earthy tones of grays, golds, greens, rusts, and blues, this slate stone adds a dash of color to the otherwise monochromatic space. 

#4 Subtle Outdoor Accents

Instead of wallpapering your room, take texture and style one step further with stone. This traditional seating area off the kitchen includes the rustic beauty of Sierra Blue Stacked Stone panels. The cool blues and grays of the stone contrast the warm woods and furnishings, while hints of white and dashes of rust tie the look together.

Transform a fireplace into the ultimate focal point by cladding it in stone from floor to ceiling. This transitional living room blends many styles. The natural split face finish of the featured Silver Travertine Stacked Stone panels have a rustic element to this put together space.

#8 A Detailed Dining Room

This delicious dining room is full of dynamic texture, from the warm woods and stone to the hard metals and soft fabrics. The floor tile cleverly serves as a rug beneath the dining set and draws the eye upward to the wall tile of soft creams and warm beige tones. The Casa Blend 3D Multi Finish Stacked Stone panels infuse character with its staggered mixture of split face and honed finishes. 

#9 A Backdrop for Furniture

Just because you’re a minimalist or lover of modern design doesn’t mean your living space has to be cold or sterile. This sleek space features clean lines that are warmed by the Charcoal Pencil Stacked Stone panels. Because the walls are covered with thin strips of slate, they become the perfect backdrop for contemporary sofas and side tables, as well as your choice of artwork.
