Oberlin, OH, November 1, 2018—Use Natural Stone was featured on a recent episode of TLC’s Make This Place Your Home.

This segment was a result of the Natural Stone Institute’s Natural Stone Promotional Campaign, a program designed to promote the use of natural stone to consumers, designers, architects, and builders. The program is funded by donations from Natural Stone Institute members and industry partners.

“We were thrilled to have this opportunity to share the story of natural stone with TLC’s impressive audience through Make This Place Your Home. This is just one example of what is being made possible through Use Natural Stone. We are excited about the future of this program,” stated Natural Stone Institute CEO Jim Hieb.
