Founder John Antunes started his company in New York in 1981, seeing an opportunity for a stone resource that combined old-world craftsmanship with cutting-edge technology.
In 1994, Antunes, taken by the beauty and possibilities found on Hilton Head Island, relocated his family here. The company now has showrooms in Hilton Head, Beaufort, Ridgeland, (SC) and Pooler (Savannah) Ga., as well as in New York.
Beautiful and unique kitchen and bath countertops, elegant floors, walls, fireplaces and outdoor areas throughout South Carolina, Georgia, New York and as far away as the Dominican Republic, boast beautiful stone from Distinctive Granite and Marble. The company’s showrooms are frequented by the area’s top interior designers and architects, as well as home and business owners.
Distinctive’s hand-selected, imported granite, marble, travertine and limestone grace buildings from upscale residences to hotels, restaurants and businesses including Godiva and Chanel. Distinctive has also emerged as the area’s large supplier of quartz, a fast-growing segment of the stone market.
With more than 20,000 slabs and 250 varieties of stone, including exotics from limited production quarries, Distinctive’s stone selection and buying power are simply unmatched.
