Turkish Stone Shapes

Last Updated On

Shape, and it’s cousin form, are intrinsic concepts in architecture and interior design.  The legendary architect Louis Sullivan, did after all, pen the august axiom, “form ever follows function”, as an elemental approach to architectural design. His former employee, Frank Lloyd Wright, heard him loud clear and the history of twentieth-century design began to be written. Our point here is the relevance of simple shapes in an overall design plan. That is where Turkish Stone Shapes from Tureks enter the picture.

One of the easiest, and most expressive shapes that natural  stone can deliver is the elongated rectangle. For our purposes, let’s define this as being a rectangle where the longer leg is more than 2X of the shorter leg. A good example would be 4” x 12”.

Versailles Pattern

As you can see directly above, elongated shapes contribute mightily to this classic Versailles Pattern. At the very top of the post is another fine example incorporating green stone.

The general idea of this post is to call attention to both the existence and utility of Turkish Stone Shapes. Thanks for reading and please let us know how we can help.
