About Us


Our story goes back to 1996 when granite countertop demand was minimal. At that time other surface materials were overflowing the market, such as corian solid surface, formica and several others. We decided our main focus would be granite, marble and other types of natural stones and formed Artelye Marble & Granite.  We did this because we just loved the natural look of stone and our focus was, “Created By Nature, Custom Crafted by Artelye”.   The natural flowing veining, depth, unique and inconsistent patterns that only earth could provide. Other alternatives at that time were too plain, too consistent; they had no creative design to their patterns. Mother Nature is the master designer.  Over time, we learned that our name, Artelye, was hard to pronounce and even harder to spell.  Countertops Raleigh is easier to remember find and remember us!

Two things we believe distinguishes us from our competition:

  1. Our genuine passion for working with natural stone (granite)

  2. Our love for technology.
