French limestone, for centuries, has been used to build vast, historical chateaux and cosy, rural gites across France and was the main building material for much of Paris including famous landmarks such as the Louvre and Les Invalides.
Equally, due to its durability and popular colour pallet, French limestone has been the material of choice for many prestigious buildings across England and the world alike.
Many French limestones are very dense and extremely durable, making the material a perfect choice for flooring in a busy household and for use outdoors as well as in commercial settings.
Among our range of limestone tiles, flooring and paving, we have selected a series of French limestones that we believe offer charm and character as well as the strength to withstand all that modern life can throw at them.
However, we don’t just stop at flooring. Working with quarries directly means we can also supply many bespoke pieces including steps and stairs, skirting boards, swimming pool copings, column bases, door architraves and much more. A number of made-to-measure fireplace designs are also available to our customers.
Our collection includes large-format, modern-style French stone floors Manoir Brown and Agen. Both feature straight edges with our Satiné finish and are suited to kitchens, large spaces and commercial projects.
For those looking for a more traditional, old-looking French stone floor we offer our Manoir Grey, Antiqued French limestone flooring and also Bourgogne rendition antiqued French stone floor.
Manoir Grey is a blue/grey stone with subtle ageing to its edges. The flagstones in our Antiqued French limestone flooring are taken from a mixture of quarry beds and have a slightly pitted surface and aged edge. Colours within this floor range from beige through to chocolate, and the flagstones are available in small sizes up to pieces 1.2m long. We are also able to age this material more heavily for a more rustic stone if requested.
Our Bourgogne rendition antiqued French limestone has been aged by hand to produce an authentic take on a genuine reclaimed stone. Our French limestone pavers also offer an authentic-looking rustic floor. These small, classic aged stones can be used inside and also outside for landscaping and driveway projects.
And finally, a French limestone collection would not be complete without a genuine, reclaimed French stone sourced from centuries-old buildings where it will have been walked on for generations. We are able to source authentic, Reclaimed Barr de Montpellier limestone flooring thanks to our connections with some of the most reputable suppliers in France. This is a rare product but one that is popular with those wanting to possess their very own piece of history.
