Exterior stonework projects can often require a leap of faith—It’s not always easy to imagine how a whole fireplace will look just from seeing a single piece of stone.

Get some peace of mind at the new Stove and Stone Gallery in Fairfield, which showcases a variety of concepts and pieces (an outdoor shower here, a wood burning stove there) to help inspire your next exterior project.

Of his inspiration, owner Patrick Mobilio, who also owns New England Tile and Marble, says, “I wanted people to be able to come in here in a clean environment—not a dusty yard…and see the different options.”

And talk about options: You name it, they’ve got it. Mobilio’s brother cuts and processes the gallery’s stone from a plant in Oxford, CT, so they can be especially flexible on stone cut and color. Need the name of a good contractor? Mobilio’s happy to give you a recommendation. So if you’re thinking of embarking on an exterior project this spring, make the Stove and Stone Gallery your one-stop shop. Go to newenglandtile.com for more.
