Stone Manufacturing Company is a small company that was founded in 1957. It has been nurtured under the aegis of hands on family ownership for six decades.

Because of the dominance of the fireplace wall, the treatment of the fireplace has become an important aspect of design in the home.

Our goal has been to create, develop and continuously improve a line of proprietary custom made fireplace furnishings that, while enhancing the beauty of the home in a sometimes transformative way, also provides practical solutions for issues of scale, balance and proportion in problematic fireplaces.

It is here where Stone Manufacturing Company excels, since many of its design elements are created to resolve issues with fireplaces. These designs can be incorporated to correct undersized fireplace openings, to screen large fireplace openings, to anchor raised openings to the hearth or merely to hide ugly openings.

Equally importantly, we are committed to producing safe products for the home, including some that are specifically child and pet friendly.

The products are hand-made to order, one piece at a time, under our roof in California, USA. From initial design, through fabrication and finishing, to final assembly and packaging, the process is distinguished by meticulous attention to every detail. In fact every item is individually bench-tested and signed off for quality assurance to meet our high expectations of performance and appearance.

Created in a traditional workshop environment by our artisans, who are master craftsmen in fabrication and finishing with decades of experience with our Company, the broad range of coordinated accessories are fully customizable for style, finish, size, shape and fit.

Made of the finest materials such as solid brass and bronze, stainless steel and hand-wrought iron, whether for indoor or outdoor use, unique and innovative designs are offered using proprietary molds, dies and even finishes and textures.

At a time when there has been a flight of manufacturing to foreign countries and an influx of cheap and sub-standard goods from overseas, Stone Manufacturing Company is proud to stand virtually alone in continuing a six decades tradition of offering custom fireplace accessories made in the U.S.A. in our own manufacturing facility in sunny Southern California.

We are proud to say that innovation as well as the preservation of time-honored techniques is alive and well at Stone Manufacturing Company.
