Timeless Trends: Countertops with Character

This is the first post in our “Timeless Trends” series, where we will share our favourite interior design trends. We're not talking about fads that disappear in a year, but design elements that will stand up to the test of time in function and beauty. Today, we're going to share our love of stone countertops that ooze character.
