Our Story

Stone Forest was founded by Michael Zimber in 1989.  Michael’s relationship with stone and water began in his early 20s when he worked as a climbing and river guide.  Fascinated with the beauty of the rock cliffs he was scaling, he began sculpting blocks of stone in his spare time.  After "living the life” as a guide for 10 years, his mother told him to get a real job.  Mike figured she was probably right and started thinking about how he could take what he loved about being in the wilderness and somehow bring it into people’s homes and gardens. Stone Forest was born.  

Thirty-two years later, Stone Forest is a group of artisans and designers focused on bringing the elegant simplicity of natural materials into the bath and garden.  We take our lead from nature’s blue print, emphasizing the quiet beauty of  stone, bronze, copper, wood, bamboo and iron.
