Two Rivers Stone Boutique opens in St. Louis

Two Rivers Stone Boutique, a new St. Louis-based natural stone distributor, opened for business last month at 9215 Dielman Industrial. The showroom’s white-glove shopping experience is available to designers, architects, builders, and homeowners. 

With hundreds of stone slabs available—think onyx, granite, quartzite, and marble—Two Rivers offers a unique and diverse selection sourced from Italy, Brazil, and India.

“We bring all of those products into Two Rivers Stone Boutique so that people can come in and view and envision these products in their homes,” says owner John Howell, an experienced former marketing and sales executive with Fortune 500 companies. Clients work with their preferred fabricators on the cutting and installation of stone for projects for the kitchen, bathroom, laundry room and more.  

Through this new business venture, Howell is committed to contributing to the area’s growth and prosperity. 

“I believe in St. Louisans being offered the products and services here in their hometown,” says the St. Louis native. 

Having faced challenges with his own home remodeling project, and knowing how friends had struggled to source stone in town, flying to Dallas, Chicago, and even New York to shop, Howell set out to fill the gap in the luxury market.

“The combination of my own personal experience, along with what other people were telling me was missing in the marketplace, was the catalyst for starting this company,” he says.

Howell’s favorite part of the business? When a client loves the product so much that they decide to cancel a sourcing trip out of town.

The showroom is open by appointment only until the final construction phase is complete.
