French limestone flooring – charm, character and strength
French limestone flooring brings with it an immense amount of charm, character and strength. Full of history, this material is popular around the world.
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 and traditional, old-looking French stone floors as well as smaller cobbles and pavers.
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 one metre long.
Our Bourgogne rendition antiqued French limestone has been aged by hand to produce an authentic take on a genuine reclaimed stone while our Vieux Luce grey French pavers also offer an authentic-looking rustic cobble for inside and outside use. These warm grey, classic aged stones can be used for landscaping projects as well as in the renovation of perhaps traditional or rustic properties.
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.
