The Granite Gurus: Designer's Kitchen: Soapstone Island with Carrara


We Just love working with the Interior Designers at Alice Lane. They are so fun & Talented, plus they do such beautiful work. The jobs we do with them are always some of our favorites. When Interior designer Suzanne said she was redoing her own kitchen BJ was happy to help her with the countertops. 

We got lucky and had a really pretty remnant of Soapstone in our yard that worked perfectly for the Island. For the perimeter countertops Suzanne selected the Carrara marble from our stock with a honed finish.
Soapstone + Carrara = One of my favorite combos.
She did a Mitered edge detail on the Carrara because it was 2 cm.
On the island the edge detail is a 1 1/4" Square Polish.
Check out her island, isn't it a beautiful piece?
