The historic, antique black and white Nero and Bianco Carrara marble stone floor always catches my eye. Found throughout Europe from Kings estates to fine manor homes, this stone floor is an ode to the Romans who cherished the symmetry and geometry of the octagon marble black and white floor. It provides an anchor and incredible ambiance to a room, as well as a remarkable artistic contrast to other materials within the interior.
For example, an antique octagon black and white Bianco Carrara and Nero marble stone floor will carry an entryway and allow the eye to rest upon geometric perfection before entering into the main residence. There is then, a beautiful tension of contrast created when juxtaposed next to warmer tones, such as French oak wood floors or antique French limestone flooring. In a kitchen, a reclaimed Italian Bianco Carrara and Nero octagon marble floor is the epitome of elegance. It marries with metals, for example with a stove from la Cornue or La Canche, and works well with a variety of colors such as warm cream tones, French blues, deep greens, gray and golden hues. These floors create a statement.
These authentic interiors can be recreated in one's home by using Historic Decorative Materials' antique Italian Octagon black and white Bianco Carrara and Nero marble stone floor with our Kings of France 18th Century French Oak flooring and our array of antique or aged French limestone floors. The material matters and when an authentically antique Italian black and white octagon marble floor is installed, one instantly feels transcended in the space.
