From French limestone and Belgian Bluestone Flooring to French oak wide-plank flooring in solid and planks, as well as reclaimed Belgian veneer bricks and French reclaimed terra cotta tiles - architects and designers choose these formidable surfaces for their exceptional building and renovation projects.
Sharing a partnership with it's parent company, Pavé Tile, Wood & Stone, Inc., a by-appointment showroom is available where a client will receive our expert Design Service and installation recommendations. Visiting our showroom allows a client to feel and touch our incredible and highly vetted collection of French, Belgian and Italian stone and wood materials while receiving the design service to help marry materials to achieve the client's goals. A Design Service is also available for those who cannot visit the showroom that has proven to be extremely beneficial. With proprietary glazed wall tile collections developed in-house to specifically compliment reclaimed materials, architects and homeowners appreciate the ability to achieve design flow throughout the entire home.
DESIGN SERVICE is now available! The internet can be frustrating for our type of business if making an appointment with us in our showroom cannot be achieved. Samples of natural materials with inherent color variations and textures will never communicate the true product. This is why we have implemented a design service where a client sends images of their goals, materials they may already have, a description of their project - and we, in turn, create design boards that hone in on what they are looking for. This goes beyond samples! If you are interested in our design service, email your request by clicking here.

The Kings of France 18th Century French Oak Floors are extraordinary. The colors of these aged French oak planks are not created by applying stains or oils. Highly skilled wood craftsmen perform an aging oxidation process onto each plank that works within the tannin of the oak. This changes the composition of the wood fibers where color is created authentically, as if they turned back time. The resulting French oak floors appear as if they have been salvaged from an 18th Century Château or French farmhouse. From videos of each color or viewing a gallery of installations, Historic Decorative Materials wants you to understand just how magnificent these aged French oak floors really are.

Images of abandoned fine homes and châteaux ignite stories in my mind, imagining those that walked their halls and porticoes so long ago. The patina left behind from their footprints, the laughter held in the air, the tears that they shed were their lives...perhaps just like mine...just a bit grandeur in their dwelling. This is why reclaimed terra cotta tiles from France are dear to me. Each tile is a story unto itself. And I appreciate this.
