About Us

The Artistic Difference...

artistic stone design

We help people love being at home.

We custom fabricate and install granite kitchen countertops, marble vanity tops, travertine tub surrounds, onyx bar tops, quartz furniture tops, soapstone fireplace surrounds, limestone outdoor kitchen tops and other projects for our customers.

Artistic Stone Design has been serving the Richmond VA and surrounding areas since 2000.

We are locally owned and operated. What does this mean to you?  It means you get personalized service from seasoned professionals with extensive experience in fabrication, installation and repair of natural stone and quartz surfaces.

A bit of history…

Artistic Stone Design was established in 2000 by Tom Del Monaco, a local builder who saw the need for a quality fabricator in the Richmond area. Jon Rathke, became the owner of Artistic Stone Design in 2010. In addition to having an amazing facility, quality products, and highly-trained technicians, other contributing factors to our ongoing success include being well-established with area builders, working with a lot of designers, and supplying cabinet shops, but we are best known for dealing directly with our homeowners and doing incredibly convenient turn-key installations.

“Our mission statement at Artistic Stone Design is ‘We help people love being at home,’ and we truly believe that. Our clients make memories making cookies on those granite countertops with their grandkids, or entertaining, or they just like coming home to a nice comfortable kitchen. A client may have beautiful cabinets, but good stonework makes them look a whole lot better.”

Why Choose Us

Striking Collections.
Visit our showroom and slab yard to select from hundreds of natural and engineered stone options in a variety of show stopping colors, from tight-grained UbaTuba to exotic Fusion Extra.

Unlimited Design Possibilities.
Do you need a unique shape? Are you concerned about layout? Do you wonder how the grain pattern will appear at the seams? Our sawyer can lay out all cuts with your input, to determine the most pleasing seam position, turning you dreams into a work of art.

Same-Day Turnkey Service.
We want to help keep your kitchen… a kitchen, not a construction zone. Our same day turnkey service includes removal and disposal of old tops, sink(s), dishwasher and cooktop, installation of new, custom natural stone or quartz countertops, sink(s), faucet(s), dishwasher and cooktop, and hook-up of all plumbing by a licensed plumber.

Eco-Friendly.
The fabrication process requires a tremendous amount of water to cut & polish stone. We recycle 100% of our production water used in fabrication, saving the environment the equivalent of 150-200 loads of laundry per day. We also recycle our our scrap metal, such as old sinks and appliances, and we repurpose our scrap stone into tile and pavers.
