Agate Handles We Love

The Mercia Credenza is one of the best examples that exhibit the geode craze. This piece features pulls of pure agate! Upon closer look, you'll see that the nature of this stone is very distinctive, and no two will be the same. The pattern and color of the grain will differ on each piece, which is the beauty of this natural stone. We think these agate handles are a gorgeous way to demonstrate the trend. This piece is also available as a console and as an armoire.

Unique & Functional

Wow. These Crete agate coasters have been flying off the shelves, confirming that customers and designers alike love the trend. The colorful, naturally occurring patterns of blue and aqua within the stone make for a perfect coaster in a coastal setting.

Bookends and Fresh Beginnings

The Amiya bookends are another example of how the agate trend continues in interior design. This set of two bookends feature thick, gray stone with raw unfinished edges set atop clear crystal cube bases. These bookends would be perfect in a contemporary or transitional living room or office.
