Back in 2006, when I looked for a stone hood maker, I only managed to find the Stone Age Designs, where creativity of Mr. Thierry Francois was quite impressive. May be I didn’t look hard, but today there are several more American based stone hood design shops, that are likely to get your immediate attention for excellent craftsmanship, top notch technology and overall beauty of the stone hoods they make. These hoods give you yet another alternative for kitchen decor and clean air.
