These unique sandstone pieces bring an old world, whimsical charm to any modern project. Our Modern Cobbles come in a collection of five colours, chosen to visually complement each other and reflect the variegated colours of antique European street cobbles. Modern Cobbles come with an authentic hand-hewn split face (aka “natural cleft”) finish.
- Sandstone has been used for domestic construction since prehistoric times and throughout history for temples, cathedrals, homes, and surface paving because it is resistant to weathering, yet easy to work with. Sandstone is one of the most common sedimentary rocks, composed of sand-sized grains and a cementing material that binds the grains together and occupies the space between them. Since sandstone beds often form highly visible cliffs and other topographic features, certain colors of sandstone identify strongly with certain regions (e.g. ‘terracotta’ of the Southwestern US).
