Garen Distelhorst, communications director for the Marble Institute of America, isn't necessarily surprised at the popularity of its natural stone swatch card. "We receive a lot of requests for the card because natural stone and all its different types, including granite, marble and travertine, are popular flooring and countertop materials for kitchen and bath designers," he says. "Our natural stone swatch card contains hundreds of different stones from around the world, organized by material and color. Customers can easily fan out the swatches for matching their cabinets and flooring."
The natural stone swatch card contains a sample collection of 330 swatch cards that feature a selection of marbles, granites and travertines. The natural stone images are showcased in an easy to carry swatch book.
