FrontRunners: Sit in Stone

A series of new pieces from Santa Fe–based Stone Forest blurs the line between art and function. The company’s Siena Collection (www.stoneforest.com), available since June through select dealers, comprises seven pieces crafted from Siena marble and priced from $1,600 to $22,000. The line’s bathtub, vanity, and bench are clearly purpose-built, yet, owing to their Japanese-influenced contemporary aesthetic, they are equally suited for show. The chaise ($7,000) also exhibits this duality: The 700-pound piece, cut from a single marble slab, is visually pleasing and shaped to cradle the human body.
