Octogonal tile with corner squares
This centuries-old stone floor pattern can transform an interior into a classic materpiece. Featuring either a regular octogon, or with four smaller corners, the limestone octogons have a contrasting blue-black stone or terracotta square « cabochon ». The resulting floors are classic, and are highly appropriate for historic interiors.
It is not always possible to have enough antique reclaimed octogons with cabochon squares stone floors available so many opt for our more economical new limestone options named « Patrimoine » and « Cathédrale ». We have the upper surfaces of this new stone aged to a greater or lesser extent, thereby giving a pleasing worn patina. The result is durable due to the relatively dense stone we use, which will also gain more patina over time. We have successfully been supplying genuine antique stone floors and our new « antiqued » stone floor alternatives to projects across France, Europe and worldwide for over twenty years.
