Color: Oloron-Sainte-Marie French Limestone is a warm creamy white hue where the colors are prized for it's more consistent color range. This elegant French limestone floor will allow for a sophisticated interior that will be a soft anchor to other elements within an interior. The ardoise noire cabochon is black slate that offsets beautifully the creamy white of this aged French limestone floor.
Texture: Oloron-Sainte-Marie is a classically aged French limestone floor. Classically aged means subtle hand aging where elegance is the rule. However, this elegance still exudes historic nuances as referenced by the edging of the octagon and subtle patina of it's surface texture. In contrast, the Ardoise Noire cabochon is precisely cut so the edge detail will not interfere with the soft lines of the French limestone, allowing for it's interior tight grout line.
How often does one come across a classic black and white octagon and cabochon floor within the archival interior design records of history? Seen as the epitome of elegance, these floors bring forth historic reference throughout France - from manor homes to chateaux. As grand entry way showstoppers to magnificent kitchens to wide hallways with coffered ceilings - these beautiful floors are cherished for their historic, geometric pattern, and the juxtaposition of black and white against reclaimed wood floors and reclaimed French limestone flooring is a visual palette cleanser. This means they add incredible interest to a decor, enhancing the floors abutting them that allows all materials to shine. What is lovely about the Oloron-Sainte-Marie Aged French Limestone Octagon and Cabochon Floor is the nuanced creamy white tones and soft patina. Not starkly white and black, it's a quieter creamy white + black stone floor that makes designing around it spectacular.
