Our business owner was opening a new flagship retail store. The interior design was inspired by the owner's admiration for the Cotswolds' timeless appeal and also aligned with the vision of creating a store that embodies the essence of slow living. The vision aimed to craft a space that goes beyond retail, evoking a sense of tranquility and connection with nature, akin to the serene ambiance found within the Cotswold stone cottages.
Selecting the Stone
After meticulously examining more than 20 samples, the owner decided the Mojave natural stone veneer was the perfect choice for the retail store. It captured the essence of the Cotswold's rustic appeal with its blend of earthy tones and textured finish. This stone's warm and weathered appearance added a sense of history to the building. Additionally, the practical aspects of the Mojave stone veneer were highly appealing to the owner as its durability and resilience promised minimal maintenance and long-term sustainability.
Mojave is a timeless natural thin cut limestone veneer with a slightly rough texture. The veneer has beautiful color and texture variations and is amazingly all cut from the same limestone. Mojave’s cream tones show the raw or interior part of the limestone, whereas, the tans and browns show the exterior part of the stone slabs.
Completing the Flagship Retail Store
The owner loved curating the palette of soothing tones with the Mojave natural thin veneer to complement the retail store’s soaring ceilings. The stone helps bounce the bright light that enters the space to create an inviting atmosphere. The finished store features Mojave natural thin veneer, reclaimed woods, and raw finishes. It strikes a balance between the careful curation of hardware and fixtures found at every touchpoint throughout the shopping experience.
