What does the name "Slate & Guild" mean?

Slate is a fine-grained, foliated metamorphic rock that is beloved in contemporary interior design due to its durability and elegance. It is also associated with the term "clean slate," which aligns with our mission to help our clients start afresh, without regard to the past, free of restrictions and commitments.

A guild is a medieval cooperative of craftsmen or artisans that guaranteed a high standard quality of its products. We envision ourselves as a modern-day collective of specialists dedicated to the craft.
