Antique Blonde Barr

Quarried between 1820 and 1900 in the Languedoc region of France, these stones were always intended to be used as flooring in grand country homes of this area.

These flagstones are all hand sawn and shaped, Antique Barr is commonly installed in coursed lengths. The quarries situated in the Languedoc area were quickly exhausted and have since been built over.

Antique Blonde Barr is approximately 2.5 to 3 cm (1” to 1¼”) in thickness. The colouration varies between golden beige and a light grey. The texture was originally open grain and soft when first installed in the 1900’s. With the passage of time and use the stone surface became harder and worn to a slightly undulating finish. More consistent in rectangular size, the variation in colour lends itself to any period property.

More about Antique Stone & Marble:

From its very beginnings, Paris Ceramics' quest for new and unusual products led to the company's great interest in the reclaiming and relaying of antique limestone, marble and terracotta floors.

Today we are the leading experts in the field, finding period floors in country houses, cháteaux and farmhouses throughout Europe and beyond.

Each floor is bought individually and transported to our workshops where it is pain-stakingly cleaned to remove accumulated grime. It then has to be carefully sorted and adjusted to fit the proportions of its new home.

No modern tiles can reproduce the patina of time which enriches the colours and textures of antique floors. Each one is highly individual, as of course, no two floors are exactly the same. Paris Ceramics aims to keep a broad range of these floors in stock at all times and visitors are welcome to view these by appointment at our warehouse in France.
