Erth Coverings expands on extensive stone veneer collection
Erth Coverings is introducing two new styles to its extensive offering of stone veneer products for residential and commercial settings. The aptly dubbed “Rock Face” and “Mountain Ledgestone” veneers are a striking complement to the organic-modernist aesthetic that will be a defining aesthetic in 2019 and beyond.
Rock Face stone veneer features a natural split surface and sides, boasting a substantial visual weight that measures just one to one-and-half inches thick. Along these same “raw” lines, the new Mountain Ledgestone series features a rugged face and natural hewn edge that personifies a warm, cabin-inspired aesthetic.
“Erth Coverings is always on the lookout for new alternatives, new opportunities and new methods. Forward-thinking and smart ideas motivate us. With Rock Face and Mountain Ledgestone, we’ve landed on something new with staying power in the Canadian marketplace,” says Erth Coverings President Ivan Rapa. “Erth Coverings was a pioneer in the introduction of natural stone veneers and panels to Canada, and we continue to garner the attention of consumers and designers by being at the forefront of design styles.”
A building renovator by trade, Rapa lived in Australia before immigrating to Canada in 1998 as a young adult. On a return visit to Australia in 2002, Rapa discovered a lightweight stone veneer product that wasn’t available in the Canadian marketplace. Later that year, Rapa brought the first container of stone veneer to Canada. Since then, Erth Coverings has evolved into a North American leader of manufacturing and distribution of high-quality natural stone veneers that are recognized for their superior quality, versatile aesthetic and design flexibility.
“Natural stone veneers are extremely popular, and offer a great dramatic way to add in some textural interest to interior or exterior spaces ” says celebrated Canadian designer and HGTV personality Rebecca Hay. “Organic materials will continue to trend inside and outside the home. Erth Coverings’ new patterns and colour palettes are a simple and beautiful complement to finishes such as wood, iron and matte black, which are so popular today.”
