Originally quarried in the 17th Century from the Languedoc region of France, these gorgeous French limestone tiles were installed in grand country homes and stately manors to provençal farmhouses. Provence, known for a Vincent Van Gogh color palette marries beautifully in contrast to the quiet, soft neutral tones of this stunning French limestone floor that was highly appreciated throughout Provence. Extremely rare to find and salvage, the reclaimed Antique Blonde Barr French limestone luckily has an historical twin in our Réedition Antique Blonde Barr French Limestone floor.
This Provençal French limestone is a marriage of dark and light creamy white tones with touches of wheat hues. The texture is softly aged with antique hand chiseled edging. The soft matte patina of this French limestone calls for bare feet to walk upon it graciously Due to it's consistent size and thickness, the installation allows for a tight grout line, only adding to it's elegance. It is a cult classic in the upscale interior design world for it's historical authenticity, neutral color palette and sheer beauty.
As for an exquisite pairing of wood + stone to create an interior ranging from California eclectic, minimalist or an old world French farmhouse vibe - our Kings of France 18th Century French Oak Flooring - the Great House Collection in Vintage Oak has those rich dark and light oak tones that reveal a warmth and historic ambiance - offsetting and contrasting perfectly to the ight soft creamy whites of our réedition Antique Blonde Bar French limestone.
