Soapstone’s Practical Charm Featured in Hudson Valley Restaurant

By | M Teixeira News, Soapstone Countertop, Soapstone in Restaurants | No Comments

As Brooklynites and NYC residents search for the best weekend trips to get out of the city, many fall in love with the rustic charm of New York’s Hudson Valley. Nestled into the hills of New York, Hudson is a chic little city with a warm and unique restaurant scene.

One of the cornerstones of Hudson Valley tourism is Wm. Farmer & Sons, a bustling restaurant, barroom, and café. During the two year renovation of a historic 1830s building, M. Teixeira was given the opportunity to provide soapstone for the bar top, dining tables, espresso bar, and fireplace hearth. M Teixeira Soapstone fabricated the dining tables and bar tops and also performed the installation.

Restauranteurs are continuing to choose soapstone for its universal appeal and tough longevity.

Universal Style

Soapstone’s aesthetic fits seamlessly with any design style – whether contemporary modern or barnyard rustic, soapstone has the look to blend in and stand out among any design elements.

Utilitarian Purpose

Don’t let its classy look fool you – soapstone is impervious to liquid, stains and acids and can withstand excessive temperatures. This stone is also incredibly hard and will not crack or chip against normal wear and tear.

Solid Soapstone Backsplash

By | Soapstone Backsplash, Soapstone Countertop | No Comments

A solid soapstone backsplash is often praised by interior designers for the stunning effect they have on a kitchen. While the effect is luxurious and customized, part of the appeal is that a solid backsplash does not require an extravagant budget. Many homeowners are looking for affordable ways to update their kitchen, and a solid backsplash can be the answer.

Contemporary Slab Soapstone Backsplash

The solid, unbroken surface of a soapstone slab backsplash creates a bigger and bolder effect than traditional subway tile. Homeowners can have the best of both worlds when using stone; it yields a contemporary look and timeless durability. Stylistically, stone marbling is a fantastic design element on a soapstone backsplash, as the eye is naturally drawn to vertical surfaces before horizontal.

When using veined soapstone as a solid backsplash, many designers have found success in combining simpler, more toned-down materials in the composition of a kitchen. For instance, you may pair a soapstone backsplash with grained wooden cabinets, a matching island, and a solid (un-veined) countertop surface. For this concept, designers recommend sticking to no more than three materials, to avoid clashing.
