Modern geometry: Halo Edging from Island Stone

Island Stone has launched Halo Edging, which achieves a finished look by combining a distinct geometric shape with handcrafted beauty of stone mosaics.

The technique starts by defining a perimeter shape with placement of specially cut stones. With the outer edge established, the center is filled in by hand selecting and tightly placing individual stones to create the finished tile.

The pieces can be used for walls and floors, indoors and outdoors, and are also ideal for larger expanses and applications.

HOTEL OPTIMIZATION PART 2 | SEPTEMBER 10 & 24, 2020

Survival in these times is highly dependent on a hotel's ability to quickly adapt and pivot their business to meet the current needs of travelers and the surrounding community. Join us for Optimization Part 2 – a FREE virtual event – as we bring together top players in the industry to discuss alternative uses when occupancy is down, ways to boost F&B revenue, how to help your staff adjust to new challenges and more, in a series of panels focused on how you can regain profitability during this crisis.


The Halo Edging technique launches with Honeycomb, a hexagon shape measuring just under a foot, tip to tip. Each piece is made with natural Indonesian stone in Random, featuring tumbled shapes, and Cobbles, which has a pebble-like appearance. Both styles are available in six color blends: beige and tan marble mix, beige marble, sterling megamix, sterling grey, tan marble, and grey marble.

The mesh-backed hexagon mosaic pieces are installed by using standard spacers to create a ¼-inch grout joint. A contrasting sanded grout is recommended to highlight the design.
