Torquay Quartz Cambria – YK Stone Center in Denver

In this kitchen, on the island- we used Torquay, a quartz product from Cambria . The overhangs had to be supported by metal brackets underneath the slab. This island lit up the kitchen very well.

Calcutta Gold Marble Kitchen – YK Stone Center Fabrication in Denver

Beautiful stone, Installed in a kitchen for island & Perimeter countertops. This is a honed- Calcutta Crestola Marble from a local distributor “Granite Imports” in Denver. Due to the soft stone and the surface being honed, we had to put an extra strong sealer on it, this will prevent any penetration of small stains and dirt. Although a daily cleaning is suggested for a stain-free countertop. The Island consists of two slabs, which are mirrored for a butterfly effect- it is a 3cm thick slab.

Caesarstone Supremo Collection. Granite In Denver

Caesarstone Supremo Collection is a new line that YK Stone Center is offering to our clients. The material is clean, fresh and timeless. It has a different kind of mood and flair about it. To expand on that, Queen of Hearts is actually a translucent stone, meaning you can back-lit the slab and make it stand out even more, creating that ‘wow’ effect in the room. Another- is that you can mix and match the materials within your room, but be at ease that they compliment eachother! This quartz material looks completely different than the quartz surfaces you normally see, this supremo collection is more of a subtle smaller shapes movements- where it doesn’t distract from anything, but adds a dimensional  look to your countertops weather you want it to blend with the room, or contrast it.  Caesarstone warrants the quartz material to be -scratch resistant, stain resistant, crack resistant, moderate heat resistant, low maintenance, nonporous->nonabsorbent, mold and mildew resistant, and maintain the consistency of color. The application of this quartz material is endless, you can use as countertops and backsplash in your kitchen, you can put it as a fireplace* (electric) surround, make it a unique bathroom with this contemporary vanity top, you can also create custom furniture pieces, such as small tables, wall art, seating area.

The Supremo Collection offers 8 unique color designs:
Fair Lady 1650

Ocean Palace 1550Black Night 1620Queen of Hearts 1420Queen of Sheba 1150Shining Armor 1050Maharaja 1350Swan Lake 1600

Please take a look at the official page of Caesarstone Supremo Collection here.

Please stop by our Denver showroom to look at the Caesarstone Supremo Collection samples.

YK Stone Center has just finished a project at 4Seasons hotel, (40th floor)  in Denver Downtown, with the ‘Fair Lady’ material, and it look absolutely amazing!!!

Surfaces 2013, Las Vegas. YKSC

I’m waaaay late on this post, but i thought ‘better late than never..’ .
So here it is again.
Ilya, his beautiful wife Anna, Val, and I- took a trip to Las Vegas for the Surfaces 2013 tradeshow. It was once again, a great experience, learning, experimenting with new stone, products & materials, building relationships, and catching up with current vendors- whom we have a successful business with already. My main mission was not the tradeshow, but the educational classes. I’ve learned some key elements that I’m slowly implementing into my job- which is a great thing, change is always good!

Aside from the tradeshow and education, my other favorite part was eating at the ‘Gordon Ramsey’s Restaurant‘. it was TOP NOTCH, I mean- crazy amazing taste… this was my favorite restaurant by far, I recommend it 100%! Ilya indulged himself in steak, just melts in your mouth… ahhh make me hungry just writing about it.
Then at night we went to see the Le Reve at the Wynn, also one of my fave shows…
We did lots of walking as well, but this time i remembered my flat shoes.. hahaha, and a good thing I had them!!

met MJ :)Gordon Ramsey restaurantGordon Ramsey

Abstract Wine Bottle Holder from Stone

Wanted to introduce a new idea for us. This was brought up to our attention from one of our good friends in the business, we tried out the concept and it turned out to be pretty rewarding. We had to make adjustments to make sure the bottle and the stone holder will balance and not fall. We have had so much positive feedback from people who received it and they all love it.
This works with a full bottle of wine only, do not place bottle-holder in reach of children or if you have pets (cats). The stand is fabricated out of left over pieces from granite, marble, and quartz. Other stands are available, such as the 3-bottle holder, but that one is secured at the base- these may stand alone and may hold bottles that are empty as well. Looks absolutely beautiful, and for sure will have your home guests talking about it!!!

YK girls at the KBIS 2012

This post is long overdue. But, i thought I’d share the experience with you anyhow. This time it was only Kate (our permanent designer at YK Stone Center Showroom) and I (Gina) who decided to go last minute and attend the KBIS show. This was our first trip by ourselves to the windy state, it was a great experience. The trip was short, but we did get some time after the show to walk around the city a little- i love the elevated railroads next to the buildings and residential windows… I love it! At the show- established relationships with couple of new vendors, as well as spent some time with our current vendors to see how the business is going.

Cambria Natural Quartz Surfaces at YK Stone Center Inc.

I wanted to add a post about Cambria quartz. We started carrying Cambria a little more than a year ago, and it has really impacted our business, and I will tell you why. Cambria is made up of 93% pure natural quartz, it is one of the hardest and most common minerals on Earth- which is why Cambria is the number one choice for a countertop.

The pros about Cambria material are that Cambria slabs are nonporous, do not stain, do not collect bacteria- FOOD SAFE, do not scratch, heat resistant (although the use of a hot pad or trivet is always recommended to prevent heating the product- as the direct and sudden high temperature change on the stone may damage it), certified by GREENGUARD, virtually a maintenance free product that is available for any home. Cambria is an excellent surface choice for a wide variety of uses, including kitchen countertops, bathroom vanities, shower and tub surrounds, furniture tabletops, fireplace surrounds, desk tops, wet bar areas, and window sills- not recommended for outdoor. Cambria slabs are available in 1cm, 2cm and 3cm thicknesses, and offers more than 100 designs to choose from. The natural quarts design goes all the way through the material thickness.

YK Stone Center is one of the few carriers of Cambria Quartz material in Denver, you are more than welcome to come down to our Denver showroom and look at the samples, some full slabs and done projects. You will love the product, as many past and current clients do. It is more popular in contemporary homes, downtown, and urban lofts, but the different shades and character of the stones are suitable for any home and any style that you may choose.
Most popular edge on Cambria Quartz is the ‘flat polish’ or have it thicker ‘mitered edge’ which looks absolutely amazing on the island- give your kitchen a big statement! see more edge options

To see some online inspirations, please go to Cambrias official site, the designs are endless!

Fall of 2012 Cambria introduced 6 new breathtaking quartz colors: (shown in full slab size)

Custom one-slab-tabletop

This was a cool custom project that we finished earlier in the year. Basically the client wanted a table top, but could not find any support that would work to hold up the giant granite slab. So our welder custom made this table support out of steel. the table is being supported by half oval shaped plates that the granite material sits on, and the steel legs hold up the weight of the heavy material. Table top is from a very beautiful, very exotic granite stone called “Stonewood’.. The edge around the table is ‘upside down radius chamfer’. This turned out to be such a great project, Looks very clean! definitely an eye catcher for guests, and a statement for the whole house.
