Don’t find customers for your product. Find products for your customersSeth Godin
Such a strong statement. It’s one of the main reasons Buechel Stone expanded past Wisconsin. At the end of the day, we are at the mercy of design trends and Pantone’s love of new colors . Our natural stone is exactly what it is, NATURAL.STONE. We can’t just sprinkle new color pigments and paint colors on natural stone the way fake stone guys can (you know who you are) and that’s ok. We have a coloring palette only mother nature can paint.
Which brings us to our new offerings for 2022. A lot of new products are coming from Buechel Stone’s Kansas location. When we started fabrication in Kansas we were well aware there was the potential for a much larger offering, but also knew it was not realistic to try and do everything at once. I honestly think there’s a good chance we’ve only scratched the surface (no quarrying pun needed) and will have even more in the future. Here’s what’s new this year!
Ginger Sands Castle Rock
Ginger Sands Castle Rock is a subtle blend of soft tan tones to a fiery copper that gives a beautiful contrast. Being in the Castle Rock line, the random squares and rectangle bedface pieces will give you subtle color variations along with a wider range of textures.
Jute Cloth Siena and Webwall
The Jute Cloth color has been a great addition to our natural stone offering. Not only was it our most popular Kansas stone launched so far, in 2021 Jute Cloth Ashlar was the second most sold full veneer for all of Buechel Stone!
The addition of Siena and Webwall were the next obvious addition to our line. Jute Cloth colors lend well to the Tuscany look popular with our other Siena offerings and add a smooth, velvet beige to our Fieldledge line. Webwall gives Buechel Stone a Mosaic option that is uniform in both look and texture.
Misty Grunge Tailored Blend
Like the music of the 90’s, the grunge movement for design went from obscure to mainstream. The worn and utilitarian look replaced the vivid colors used in many designs found before. Grunge design uses subdued, dirty, and dull colors, often combined in an abstract way. Adding the look and feel of a spring mist melds Misty Grunge Tailored Blend into a mix of beiges, creams, browns, and blue/gray. Consider accents with grunge fabric from Moda.
Oiled Nubuck Castle Rock, Fieldstone, & Siena
As one of the most highly regarded and durable leathers available, Nubuck has a history of being associated with aristocracy and luxury items. Oiled Nubuck stone is mined from the top layers of the quarry, similar to its leather counterpart that comes from a hide’s top grain. It also has a soft velvet-like look and feel fitting for a cigar lounge or expansive craftsman mansion.
Silverdale Country Squire & Siena
Silverdale has been the backbone of our Kansas products, so adding additional Silverdale colors to our lineup was bound to happen. When quarrying Silverdale blocks there are layers that create nice Ashlar heights. The linen-like tones of Silverdale fit well with a wide range of design options from farmhouse to a Chianti villa.
White Marigold Tailored Blend
White tones in natural stone have always been a sought after color. The beauty of White Marigold is the hints of gold and occasional cream and yellow veins that lend to a wider range of accent colors. Being part of our Dimensional line makes for a great linear appearance that contrasts beautifully with dark trim and accents in modern home designs.
Highland Gray Ashlar, Castle Rock, Ledgestone, Siena, Tailored Fieldledge, and Webwall
From North Carolina we would like to introduce you to Highland Gray. While quarrying for Highland Scotch, we came across a new vein of stone that deserved its own love and product category. The Highland Gray color palette ranges from a salt-and-pepper grain to a full-striated face allowing people that want some color consistency but love natural stone’s mixed imagery and genuineness. With occasional hints of rust and browns, it is a distinct addition to Buechel Stone’s product offering. You may have to be patient as our current North Carolina stone demand has outpaced our capacity. Knowing the life-cycle of product selection to actual use we felt it was still worth launching for the customers who have time to wait.
That wraps up Buechel Stone’s new products for 2022.
