Bentley interiors have always been rather luxurious and elegant, but the furnishing of vehicle interiors with stone veneers is enabling the brand to take its fabled interiors to the next level.

These gorgeous interiors are made from slate and quartzite stone obtained from India, specifically quarries in the northern desert state of Rajasthan and the southern state of Andhra Pradesh. The stone materials are broken into smaller pieces, with each piece being refined with resin and glass fiber, before the finished veneers are applied to Bentley interiors.

These Bentley interiors are a true design triumph in that they manage to take the most rustic and earthy of components -- stone mined from the Earth -- and turn it into a modern and luxurious design component for a luxury car.
