The legendary Waldorf Astoria Hotel made its debut to the city of Beverly Hills in the summer of 2017. The 12 story tower evokes classic Hollywood glamour and celebrates California style. SMG Stone was the stone installer and fabricator for the interior 170 rooms and 51 suites guest of the hotel. Inspired by the Art Deco and Streamline Modern styles of the 1930s and 40s, the design team resisted trends toward exotic materials and returned to classic tones selecting three natural stones: Bianco Dolomiti marble, Amarillo Negras marble and Crema Marfil marble.

Corona Del Mar, Calif. – People will put up with nearly anything to have beachfront property in Southern California. But, when one couple finally opted to replace what one of their architects calls a very small home," they didn't settle for half-measures. To handle installation of the structural travertine, which offered something of the scope of a commercial job in a residential package, the contractor chose a sub versed in both. The results, everyone agrees, are evidence of the best type of collaboration – and are, in a one word, magnificent.
