T.H. Winston Co. of Florida.

For almost 40 years, Gordon MacPhail, owner of T.H. Winston Co. of Florida, has surrounded himself and others with the world's most beautiful natural stone. His vibrant marble and granite floors, walls, pillars and countertops fill the lobbies, atriums, hallways and offices in buildings from Boston to Miami -- and now grace homes in Sarasota, too.

Italy, France, Argentina, Taiwan, Spain and the United States. T.H. Winston Co. -- a top-quality importer, fabricator and installer of stone -- travels to the face of the mountain and uses the best quarry companies in the business, such as Pietro Dazzi Fu Enrico in Carrara, Italy, to cut and ship marble and granite.

The company's staff has years of experience in handling these special materials, and they are known in the industry for their quality work and experience. T.H. Winston helps architects, developers and builders, interior designers and homeowners select the stone that's right for them.

Take a look at some of his local creations: Visit the Sarasota City Center, the Sarasota/Bradenton Airport, the Barnett Bank Tower in St. Petersburg and the 35-story Landmark Development building in Tampa. These gleaming, elegant public spaces are made powerful and functional by their use of stone.

But marble and granite are also excellent materials for the home. Durable and exquisitely beautiful with their infinite variety of hues and markings, these stones make wonderful countertops in the kitchen and bathroom; shower enclosures; fireplace surrounds; custom furniture such as tables, desks, pedestals, planters, and of course, floors.

Dinise MacPhail, Winston's architectural and design consultant, is extremely knowledgeable about the company's products. She knows the mineral composition of these millions-of-years-old stones. She regularly visits the quarry sites to choose marble and granite; and she can direct clients to stones with the colors, movement and softness that work best, whether the stone is part of a kitchen desk or an immense lobby floor.

Winston's fabrication shop employs skilled craftsmen; some have been working 40 years cutting, polishing and finishing stone products. The technology in the shop is state-of-the-art, with top quality Italian-made machines.

The palette of colors T.H. Winston showcases is immense. Pure whites, veined Italian pinks and roses, burnished oranges, rich greens and jet blacks are just a few of the hundreds of samples T.H. Winston stocks.

From selection to education to designing and installing, T.H. Winston Co., can direct you to the wonderful world of natural stone.
