A Guide To MSI's Stacked Stone Collections In Different Styles And FormatsJuly 25, 2022
For some time now, homeowners have used stacked stone to bring the outdoors inside and to add a touch of stacked beauty to their home's exterior and beyond. This trend which delivers a timeless look, isn't going anywhere anytime soon, if ever. Using stacked stone creates conversation pieces, delivers a luxurious and sophisticated look, and heightens the beauty of any space. These premium surfaces will elevate your outdoor or indoor areas for aesthetic or practical purposes, both of which we cover further down.
So what is stacked stone anyway? Simply put, stacked stone is trimmed pieces of authentic stone fastened together to create segmented stone veneer panels. We offer stacked stone in four options, each of which we cover in this guide. Read on to learn more about our stacked stone collections in different styles and formats and how they can add amplified splendor to your design plans.

Each of these lines comes available in a wide-ranging assortment of styles and finishes. Take your pick from 3D honed to split-faced, modern chic to refined rustic. Choose from stacked stones such as slate, marble, quartzsite, and travertine.
Use the Rockmount™ Stacked Stone Collection outdoors for planter walls, barbecue surrounds, and architectural features.
