Mt. Vernon has been a refined neighborhood, but now it’s attracting the retail stores to complement its chic style. Earlier this month Charles Luck Stone opened in the historic neighborhood. The store sells good-looking stone products — think sinks, desktops, fireplace mantels — that mix the fashionable with the functional for eye-popping effect.
The Richmond-based company has been around for over 80 years, first as a granite company and now a retail stone center, and is committed to environmental and social responsibility: “We feel profound responsibility to make certain that the excavation, transportation and labor that yield this amazing product are ethical, socially responsible and environmentally sound,” the website reads. We can get behind that.
With stores in Georgetown, Charlotte, NC, Charlottesville, VA and other equally snappy places, the company seems to look for brand expansion where its stylish inventory and edgy design will be appreciated. Baltimore, are you up to the challenge?
