Sample Requests and Pavé Showroom to View our Reclaimed and Aged French Limestone and Belgian Bluestone Floors, French Oak Flooring, Antique Black & White Marble Floors, Antique Cement Tile, Reclaimed French Terra Cotta Tiles and Zellige Tiles

Dear Potential Client - This is a letter to you:

Thank you for your interest in Historic Decorative Materials.  We are an e-commerce site (where lots can be sold at any time) and showroom open by-appointment.  Please click on the link below to schedule in advance a time and day for your appointment.  We accept appointments on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday.

BY-APPOINTMENT SHOWROOM - make a private appointment at the Pavé Tile, Wood & Stone, Inc. Showroom to view installations and vignettes of our materials.  We bring in the best of French, English, Italian, Belgian, Spanish and Moroccan suppliers 2 1/2 hours from NYC.  We strictly follow CDC guidelines and request you wear a mask and follow social distancing guidelines.  All of our staff have been vaccinated.

SAMPLES: We would like to send you samples of these materials. However, we have made the decision that after 22 years of sending them, this material cannot be understood in cut pieces without seeing the overall effect of color and texture when installed and grouted. You will not see edge detail, color variation, texture variation and the overall effect of the material.  As well, there are many times samples will resemble many other floors and difficult to decipher. Reclaimed Materials are sold by the lots and lots vary.  Therefore a sample of a reclaimed material will never show what your lot may be. We understand you want to see samples in your home and compare them with your other samples - but these  samples won't show the true expression of our materials - which  includes our oxidized, hand-crafted French oak flooring.  

Wall Tile Samples can be purchased individually through our e-commerce site for our Historic Decorative Tile Collections, which include our Antiqued Delft and Monet Wall Tiles.

Additional Services  

We are more than a company that offers reclaimed and aged European materials.  We are the direct importers with close ties to our French, Italian, Belgian, English, Spanish and Moroccan suppliers.  We are a husband and wife French and American run company who understands both cultures in order to be successful. 

We have built a one-of-a-kind showroom that showcases the best of European materials 2 1/2 hours from NYC. 

We are artists that craft our Historic Decorative Wall Tile Collections and our new antiqued cement tile collection, called A Catalan Farmhouse 1850 - inspired from European history.  I hand painted the wall tile collections and we then kiln-fire and hand-crackle the tiles in our Pavé facility.  For our new antiqued cement tile collection that I designed, we antique each piece by hand, also done in our Pavé facility.  Depending on need and the materials, we build by-hand custom wooden crates in order for a successful transport throughout the US and Canada.

Our materials marry with many interiors - from Belgian and French Farmhouse and Mid-Century to Historic English Georgian, California Boho, English Shaker, Cottage and Country - just to name a few. 

Our e-commerce site: - is my personal creative outlet to inspire you, as well as and more importantly, to present the most accurate images of our materials.  We personally photograph the images of our materials from our showroom installations or outside when the material arrives.  Those images are a reference tool for overall color variation, texture, and ambiance.

We thank you for understanding of who we are and what we do.  It may be clear to you, at this point, that we are a niche business who's passion for beauty is our primary goal.  

We look forward to working with you.
