Ten Reasons to Choose Pavé Tile
From being a direct resource to manufacturing their own terra cotta tile Collections, here are 10 reasons to chose Pavé Tile and Stone, Inc., European Flooring.
1. Direct Source
In business since 2000, Pavé Tile & Stone, Inc. imports French Reclaimed Terra Cotta Tile, Reclaimed and Antiqued French & Jerusalem Limestone including 18th Century Reclaimed Dalle de Bourgogne and Reclaimed French Oak Wide-Plank Flooring. Their close relationship with the factories throughout France, Italy, Spain and Israel allows them to deliver the highest quality product and professional service at excellent pricing.
2. Reinterpreting Historical Floors for the 21st Century
We cannot explain our love for European hand made terra cotta tile. The clay from the earth, the hand-molding, the wood-firing - the idea that each tile is created by a human hand following a tradition since man existed. We use this as our canvas upon which we bring back to life historical flooring from Europe and the Middle East. We know designers and architects with their creative understanding to mix the old with the new is the 21st century aesthetic.
3. Trusted Source for European Building Materials
When searching for French Reclaimed Terra Cotta Tile, French Limestone Pavers, Dalle de Bourgogne or French Reclaimed Oak Floors - it helps to have a trusted guide to source these products. On a daily basis, François is in contact on Skype with all these suppliers throughout France procuring lots, reviewing the material, speaking shall we say - "Frère to Frère" (Brother to Brother) in his native country, making sure his clients will receive the best material that France has to offer.
4. European Terra Cotta Tile Will Be Reclaimed in 100 Years
Build to last. That's a European philosophy - proven when you cross the pond. Edifices and homes 400 years old still standing tall. It's the French Reclaimed Terra Cotta Tile that builders seek. Why? The traditions and manufacturing processes to make hand made European terra cotta tile creates a tile with strength, quality and beauty. Installed over thinset on a concrete slab, tight grout lines, and a surface texture that will just patina more over time...this is why we only use European clay for our tile collections.
5. Keeping it Stateside
There is no doubt that the convenience, quality control, and ETA is improved when building materials are made stateside. Keeping everything under one roof, albeit the actual European terra cotta tile, we are able to develop and manufacture all our decorative flooring, decorative wall tile and vintage wide plank oak planks in our Massachusetts facility...bringing the value and piece of mind to our clients.
6. French Oak Wide Plank Flooring
The common thread of all things France leads Pavé Tile to offer exquisite French Oak flooring. Pavé mills and ages their own French inspired wide plank floors called Provence Ancienne stateside. Renowned for its beautiful grain, elegant knots, hardness and durability, Pavé Tile's Vintage Wide Plank Oak Floors are pre-finished in their Massachusetts facility with an aged surface that defines old world elegance.
7. French Limestone Flooring
Business is about relationships and it's these close relationships that separate a good business from a great one. A shared French culture and a trust among brothers, Pavé Tile has the essential ties to receive the best French limestone from the most reputable quarries in France. Generations deep, these quarries use the latest in sophisticated techniques and equipment to distress numerous textures using virgin limestone to resemble 18th century pavers.
8. Jerusalem Limestone Flooring
Pavé's relationships do extend beyond France, developing close ties throughout the years with factories in Italy and Spain. Another close relationship with which we share is in Jerusalem, Israel. This close contact is one of the best quarries in Jerusalem working with the latest techniques to provide distressed limestone that appear hundreds or even thousands of years old. We are a great resource for excellent quality biblical flooring.
9. Blue and White Decorative Tile
Cultures around the world have been creating blue and white decorative tile since the discovery of firing glaze on cooked clay. What began with the Chinese, these techniques spread and transformed through North Africa, Italy and on up to the Netherlands, England and France. Whether it be called Majolica or Faience - it's a tradition that runs deep. Our Cuisine de Monet and 17th Century Delft Tile are two Collections we added to this deep pool of history - soon to be adding more with our Maison de Tunisie and our On the Road to Florence Collection coming Spring 2013.
10. Service and Knowledge Catering to the Architect, Designer, Builder and Homeowner
