At Forte Stone, picking out the perfect stone for your kitchen or bath is like walking down the candy aisle at the grocery store, a visual feast of every color and pattern: greens, blues, golds, and grays. Richly colored and textured, the stone is imported from quarries all over the world. With names like Kashimir Gold, Rainforest Brown Marble, Bianco Romano, and Sienna Bordeaux, the many varieties of stone and marble will be sure to capture your imagination.

Rachel and John Tuttle founded Forte Stone in 2003 with the goal of supplying Santa Barbara’s homes with the finest imported stone products. “We are really excited about our new line of soapstone” says Rachel. “The soapstone has a very different feel than the limestone or other selections. Its composition is more subdued and contains simpler color combinations, a more minimalist approach.”

John and Rachel are proud to be personally involved in meeting the needs of each customer. From the moment you meet the Tuttles, it is obvious why homeowners and contractors keep coming back to Forte Stone.
