Meet the Owner: The Man Behind The Stone

Ever wondered who the man behind the Encore Stone Studio brand is?

Meet Vinny Tavares, a true visionary and innovator in the stone industry! With over 15 years of experience as a partner in Pacific Shore Stones, Vinny had a dream to create a company where customers could have a blast while shopping for their perfect countertops, vanity tops, and even stone-clad fireplaces. And boy, did he deliver! Not only is Vinny an innovator in the stone business, but he's also a talented musician who enjoys composing and recording music in his spare time. But when he's not jamming out, you can find him traveling the world hand-selecting the finest stone for our inventory. Vinny personally travels to Brazil, Italy, and many other places to find the most unique and high-quality materials, so you can trust that you're getting the very best when you shop with us. But that's not all - Vinny's got some serious athletic skills too! He's been playing tennis since he was just 11 years old, and even had the honor of being recognized on center court at the inaugural ATX Open professional tennis tournament. Talk about impressive! At Encore Stone Studio, we're passionate about bringing the best stone from around the world straight to you. And with Vinny at the helm, you can trust that our selection is second to none. So why not take some time to browse our online inventory and find the perfect stone for your project?
