Collections: Aged French Limestone and Belgian Bluestone FlooringBack
Aged French Limestone Flooring is an art. The technical prowess of surfacing stone pavers into satin patina takes generations of experience. At Pavé, the direct relationships François has with those French stone quarries - generations deep in knowledge with an exactitude that defines anything French - is the only expectation one should have from Pavé's French Limestone Collections. The colors and veining of French limestone is world renowned - palettes from creams and greys to olives and wheat exude the ambiance that is cherished when it comes to authentic French limestone flooring.

Used for over 2000 years in France, French limestone is a regal and durable stone that has felt the hands of the Roman Empire in the South of France - who used French Limestone in building their arenas, theaters, and coliseums. During the Middle Ages - from the 10th to 12th centuries - French builders used their limestone to build Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. And during the French Renaissance - from the 15th to 17th centuries - French Limestone was the foundation for the Chateaux in the Loire Valley such as the Palais de Versailles. Working with the best French Limestone quarries in France, using the latest technology and most advanced techniques, François brings to Pavé the quintessential collection of French Limestone.
