April Graves appointed Partner and COO of Aria Stone Gallery
DALLAS, November 1, 2021 / PRNewswire / – After seven years with Aria Stone Gallery and as vice president of the company, April Renée Graves was named a partner and COO of the luxury brand which prides itself on raising stone to the rank of fine art. Graves, who holds a bachelor’s degree in textiles and interiors from Seattle Pacific University and a master’s degree in design from Central Saint Martins in London, has taken this once male-dominated industry to a new level.
During his tenure at Aria, Graves opened a new design showroom in Houston while managing the anchor showroom at Dallas and has managed an online showroom that rivals all others in the industry as the premier online stone store. In addition, she goes to Italy and Brazil regularly with customers to help them select their own unique pieces.
In addition to selecting the collections of materials that will be presented in the gallery, Graves enjoys traveling the world by bicycle in the cities where his work takes him. She says: “To me, cycling is a kind of freedom coupled with personal expression through both mental and physical challenge.” Often this is where his creativity ignites.
Aria Stone gallery is a unique stone shop where selections are made based on the uniqueness of each stone. The company seeks to provide the imagination, challenge the status quo, and expand the current limited perception of ways to use natural stone. Aria’s philosophy is to truly appreciate the works of art that nature has created so slowly over the centuries.
