Natural Stone

Limestone

During the past 20+ years, Paris Ceramics has established superb relationships with some of the world’s most special, niche quarries. These quarries are typically small, and privately owned, with limited production providing extremely hard to find material such as our Burgundy Clair light, from the East of France. This particular quarry produces consistent, light material with limited fossiling. Or coming from Romania, our Castille limestone shows a beautiful array of character and blends tones of grey and beige and silver.

Since we import reclaimed limestone from the South of France and its 200+ years old patina, one can only imagine what the newly cut stone would look like in your home in years to come. The essence of limestone is the life it takes on as it ages and matures over the years providing warmth and character to your residence forever.

Coveted for its natural beauty and consistent tone, it is also one of life’s most enduring materials. Limestone comes in many colors from all over the world and with the special finishes we can create either by hand or machine in our factory, you can achieve the exact look you want.

Natural Stone

Marble

Known for its unique veining and lasting durability, there is no other material quite like marble.

Starting with its graceful aging attributes, it allows the slow but magnificent evolution of this stone to result in more beauty over time such as found in the churches in France, to the Vatican in Rome. Hundreds of years later, the basis of the surfaces in these monuments still stands strong. Marble continues to be selected and displayed as a lifelong material by the world’s most discerning architects.

Marble promotes the unique offering of shapes, and patterns that make the space truly interesting. Falling cube, Palais, and Harlequin patterns are just a few we offer and when installed in long, narrow halls, or entry foyers, the result is a real “wow” effect to its visitors.

Paris Ceramics imports a large variety of marble colors. From the greys of Spain to the whites of Turkey to the magnificent Blue of the Alps, there is no limit to the creativity. Vivid Red Rose Asiago or Emerald Green allows the designers to incorporate colors into their vision which is just not possible with Limestone.

Since old marble is becoming highly protected material in the European reclamation market and extremely difficult to obtain, we have created the techniques and the artisinal skill to emulate the old world finish. Such finishes as hand antiqued, distressed, or dished have all been perfected by our experienced and capable stone crafters in Farmville, VA.

And finally, marble is suitable for interior and exterior, in any climate, which makes it truly a one of a kind.

Antique Terracotta

In later years when created for flooring, it comes in many formats: brick, large rectangles, and hexagons of a variety of sizes. Whether polished or matte or antique, so many looks can be achieved out of the same raw product.

Antique Natural Stone

Paris Ceramics is known as the pre-eminent purveyor of antique stone; reclaiming formerly used marble, limestone, and cement from former European homes is one of the mainstays of our business. Once we find, we import it to our factory in the US and clean, trim and mill so it can be installed in current American homes. The beauty of re-using timeless material, enjoying the patina, and continuing the provenance makes our antique materials extremely coveted.
