François and Co. French limestone products include both newly-quarried limestone flooring as well as coveted antique flooring such as our Dalle de Bourgogne. In addition, we also offer custom, hand-cut mosaics, inspired by those found in ancient Greek and Roman palaces. Our French limestone products begin their journey as massive 20,000-pound blocks. The block is then broken up into slabs, cut into tiles, or cut to size to build our fireplace mantels. Lightly brushed to enhance natural texture and luster, our French limestone has variations in hue and texture. The tiny embedded fossils reflect the stone’s origin and composition. These unique characteristics are what make French limestone so beautiful.
Our French and European oak Collection comprises a selection of solid or engineered hardwood floors, hand-finished in France, or Belgium by expert craftsmen. The collection is available in a variety of elegant, traditional patterns, including the regal Parquet de Versailles and the timeless Chevron. It is offered in a range of plank woods, in different widths, colors, and textures.
Unlike other surfaces, a wood floor is a warm, living thing, each one as unique as the tree it came from. French oak flooring has a character all its own, expressed in the fingerprint of the grain, its particular luster, its texture, age, and patina, in its very imperfections.
Reclaimed terra cotta from French farmhouses in Provence, our antique, hand-made terra cotta tiles combine the weathered patina of history with nature’s warmth and rich color palette. These reclaimed terra cotta tiles are between 100 and 200 years old. Available in different shapes and sizes, these tiles range in hue from reds and pinks to peaches and ochre. Popular shapes include the rectangular Parefeuille, the hexagonal Tomette, and the traditional square. Reproductions are also available.
Francois & Co. is proud of our DeCorbusier metals, sophisticated yet timeless this signature collection of countertops intercepts the classic pewter of the 1930’s Parisian bistros. Our DeCorbusier metal surfaces are a culinary grade, lead-free and the perfect finish for any interior surfaces such as, but not limited to: Countertops, Islands, Wet Bars, and Kitchen Range Hoods. Brass, Copper, Pewter, and Zinc are natural anti-bacterial metal alloys that are easy to clean with mild soap and water (no chemicals required). Pewter, Copper, and Brass are a living finish and will develop a warm, natural patina over time, where Zinc is a cooler finish and provide a beautiful, dark blue-grey patina over time. Each of these surfaces can be finished with either an antique, mirrored or polished look, giving unlimited design options.
