Ivybridge is a stone that is made of beige backdrops and displays teal veins, streaking diagonally across a blank slate. The Ivybridge is typically used for a level of depth instilled into either the kitchen or the bathroom. While the incandescent contrast between the two palettes are frequently used for playful appeals, there are other pieces that accent the color scheme that homeowners can only conceptualize.
Artful with its presentation, the Ivybridge is a surface that uses vine-like patterns that follow an intangible path. The crackles that separate from the veins exude a vague display. One of the many advantages that the Ivybridge slab has compared to other stones is the creative interior space that homeowners can arrange through outdoor concepts and outdoor-inspired pieces. Using an indoor garden concept, homeowners can emphasize the look and appeal of the Ivybridge with accent pieces and grow a thriving interior ecosystem. Inspirations that come from the Ivybridge could include vanity tops and kitchen islands. Through an ecological set of eyes, homeowners can discover a whole new world of indoor gardening.
