Distinctive Granite and Marble, the Lowcountry’s largest provider and fabricator of natural stone, has relocated the Lady’s Island showroom. The newly expanded Gallery of Ideas and Showroom is now open at 39 Burton Hill Road off the Robert Smalls Parkway.
Distinctive’s showroom includes displays of natural stone and designer-created vignettes of kitchen, bath and other stone applications. The free-standing building resembles a rambling home rather than a commercial building, and affords the interior space for engaging displays of stone options, graphics and photography, and a wide selection of stone and tile offerings.
One popular new stone product available at the Beaufort showroom is exclusive to Distinctive Marble and Granite. The Quartz Series by PolarStone has quickly become a favorite of home builders, business and home owners. This stone captures the warmth and look of marble, with veining through the slab similar to the natural stone, and offers high-performance and low-maintenance. The sought-after translucent quality of marble is captured and the surface is scratch, chip and heat resistant.
A complete Fabrication Shop will soon open at the same location. Home and business owners, designers and builders will select their slabs and have their stone fabricated in Beaufort. Distinctive is proud of their reputation of offering expert fabrication, installation and customer service.
Distinctive Granite and Marble, founded by John Antunes over 30 years ago, is still family-owned, with showrooms in Beaufort, Hilton Head Island, and River Walk (Hardeeville) and Pooler (Savannah). Antunes and his son, John Jr., regularly travel to quarries in Europe and South America to hand-select stone for Distinctive and their sister company, AGM Imports.
