For over a decade, Cory Kroger, CEO, and President of Stone Artisans has collaborated annually with Hilari Goris, CEO, and owner of Hilari Goris Designs to complete dozens of projects. Both companies work alongside their clients to see them through every detail from the smallest of remodels, to the most ambitious new construction builds.

“One of the most important elements of our business is understanding our client’s lifestyle. Hilari has an amazing way of doing just that, all the while adding her special touch to the project. She is thorough and yet efficient,” says Kroger.

With her wonderful interior composition & architectural background, Goris helps each client design their project start to finish. Once the plans are drawn, Goris meets with the client, Kroger, and his team to discuss the material selections and layouts.

“Successfully working on any project takes a skilled team. No single person sees a job through completion. That is why having trust in my vendors is so valuable. Stone Artisans and I have created a partnership over time. I trust that my job and client are both in good hands,” says Goris.

It is beyond important to Goris that Kroger is also personally on every project. She continues, “He and the Stone Artisan team work through every detail to ensure the final touches of my design are executed. Stone Artisans truly has a passion for what they do which shows in their work and how they treat all their clients.”
