Stone Furniture Self-Assembled in Three Minutes

StoneLite Furniture Launches Line of Lightweight, Elegant Granite and Marble Tables With Patented "Quick-Lock" Assembly Starting From Only $299

EDMONTON, AB--(Marketwire - January 6, 2010) - Artisan Stone Furnishings, a business with over fifty years of experience creating quality stone working, today announced the launch of their new line of StoneLite Furniture products. The fresh offerings of coffee tables, end tables, dining room tables and pedestals combine the beauty of rich granite and silky marble stone with the ease of self-assembly. This is due to the patented modular design of StoneLite Furniture products, known as "Quick-Lock," that allow most pieces to be assembled by one person in about 180 seconds.

The new line of granite and marble furniture utilizes an innovative system of constructing stone panels through the use of the highest quality granite or marble stones glazed on top of a hardened lightweight core. The result is a light and exceptionally attractive stone base on which glass tops are laid. Whereas traditional stone tables were up to 25 lbs per square foot in weight, StoneLite Furniture tables are only 6.5 lbs per square foot. The lightweight and flat packaging makes drop shipping possible.

Each delivery of granite and marble slabs are personally sourced from only the top stone quarries from around the world by founder and President of Artisan Stone Furnishings, Mike Nickel. "Our half a century of experience working with stone has given us the unique expertise of understanding how to spot quality granite and marble," says Nickel. "Each StoneLite Furniture table uses only the finest stone which has been meticulously inspected for quality. The result is a stunning piece that instantly adds class to any indoor or outdoor setting."

Nickel credits the recent economic downturn for his inspiration. "Great ideas are often born from necessity," continues Nickel. "We saw a need in the market for affordable granite and marble tables that didn't break your bank or break your back. Our goal was to provide the finest stone tables at prices everyone could afford and could be assembled by anyone in about three minutes."

Videos on the StoneLite Furniture website indeed demonstrate how various pieces are assembled by one person within three minutes or less.

Prices start from only $299 for occasional/end tables, $399 for coffee tables, $599 for dining tables and $429 for pedestal tables.

StoneLite Furniture anticipates future releases of new products, including a new line of outdoor stone furnishings.

StoneLite Furniture will have limited quantities available towards the end of January 2010. Visit to place your pre-orders today.
