Collections: Aged French Limestone and Belgian Bluestone FlooringBack
Vienna, growing from a Roman settlement to an important trading site in the 11th century - it eventually became the capital of the Austrian Habsburgs. The House of Habsburg, or the House of Austria, was one of the most important aristocratic royal houses of Europe. This family pushed Vienna into becoming one of Europe's most important cultural hubs during the 19th century. Within the city, one often sees from cafés to fine municipal buildings to chateaux, a classic black and white floor. This floor defines elegance for Pavé Tile. An ethereal white, time worn octagon is paired beautifully with a nero patina cabochon. The pattern of this floor, originating from Greek Antiquity, will forever be timeless - bringing a soft elegance into the home.
