Monarch Stone International has proudly served clients since 1977. Anthony Van Liefde started his career as a masonry contractor and was highly regarded for his expertise with natural stone. Eventually his passion and knowledge paved the way to specializing in stone consultation and supply. Lisa Van Liefde joined the business in 1986, directing marketing and managing operations.
Since 2001 we have successfully imported cobblestone and curb nationwide, making us the leader in reclaimed, antique European material. We look forward to providing personalized service, an abundance of choices in cobblestone sizes and assisting in the selection, design and installation process.
Natural stone is non-toxic and lasts a lifetime. Not only is Historic European Cobblestone® and Historic Sidewalk Cobble® genuine stone, it is reclaimed cobblestone which meets green standards for reclaimed – recycled – salvaged material. For environmentally friendly sustainable practice we suggest installation on a natural base with permeable joints to assist with run-off and percolation requirements.

“My husband found Monarch Stone International online and immediately fell in love with the pictures of their product. We decided on the reclaimed granite cobblestone to complement our new Mediterranean revival home here in Naples, Florida. From the start, the communication with Anthony and Lisa was wonderful. With all of the stress that comes along with building an 11,000 sq ft home, we have to say Monarch Stone was one of the easiest companies to work with and it was a flawless transaction. They kept in touch with us throughout the shipping process and everything was delivered right on time. We are the first in our neighborhood to have the granite cobblestone and everyone who drives by has stopped to ask about the driveway. This has such a striking and unique look, much better than any concrete paver could offer. The quality of the cobblestone is superb, much more beautiful and substantial in person than one could imagine. We highly recommend Monarch Stone and would certainly use them again in the further for another build. “

“Monarch Stone Int’l had the 2 varieties of 150+ year old cobblestone we were hoping to find, and also provided sections of old limestone curb we used for steps. They were very fast in responding to us, gave us a good price and were very efficient and accurate in arranging for shipping. We highly recommend them.”
