Our Story

Where it all started

25 years ago, a patented process of printing images onto natural stone was invented by an artist and single mother in her makeshift garage studio.  Since those early mornings in 1994, Melinda Earl has transformed her humble rooted business into a popular decorative tile manufacturer whose products can be found in homes all over the US.  Her keen design talents and self-made spirit have been the driving force of StoneImpressions through the years.  When you ask Melinda what her favorite part of running a company is, she will tell you it is running it alongside family.  It was during the early days of experimenting in her garage and printing wedding invitations onto pieces of stone that she met her soon to be husband, Greg.  After seeing what she was capable of, he pushed her to expand her business and together they grew Stonelmpressions.  Fast forward 24 years, to find her daughter, stepdaughter, and stepson all working together under one roof.

After settling into their different roles at Stonelmpressions, Greg and Melinda’s daughters’ saw a growing need for a sustainable and eco-conscious decorative tile.  They wanted to create a line that reflected their deep commitment to sustainability that didn’t sacrifice aesthetics.

Imagine a world where art meets sustainability and recycled materials are at the forefront of every home. That's the world LIVDEN is creating.

The concept was to create fresh and innovative patterns in a way that utilized upcycled post-consumer materials, giving people an easy option to choose green.  For the last year, Georgiana and Hilary have combined their complimentary skill sets to design an in-house tile line that is made from 65-100% recycled materials.  While potential company names have changed, their core values for the brand have not.  Since the creation of LIVDEN, its mission has always been based around three things: sustainability, accessibility and originality.
