Rhodes Architectural Stone travels throughout the world salvaging historic stone that might otherwise be destroyed and lost. The ancient rock gets a new life as an architectural product, ranging from sinks to furniture to walls.

An example is the Three Gorges Dam in China, where this company recovered Yangtze Limestone in a village that was destined be flooded and forgotten.

This Seattle-based company cuts and fabricates the stone for a variety of architectural and artistic projects. Using 15th century tools and techniques, they can create large-scale pieces such as stone furniture, custom fireplaces, one-piece tubs, columns and more.
