French and European Oak
Paris Ceramics offers an extensive collection of engineered and solid wood floors all crafted in Belgium or Hungary and are made out of French and European Oak. The collections offer finish choices from smooth and contemporary to aged and antique to coastal and driftwood. The natural beauty lies not only in the thoughtful color palette, made possible by fuming, staining, and weathering techniques, but also in the formats offered. This includes chevron, herringbone, design panels and continuous running patterns, available in all colors.
Nature is the source of our raw materials, as well as our inspiration. That is why we are committed to using the highest quality materials in a sustainable and environmentally conscious way. Our raw materials come exclusively from forests that adhere to responsible forest management principles and are FSC accredited. Both wood partners have made it their life's work to craft beautifully made products and a key consideration in our designs is to create products that last for generations.

Maintenance and Care for Oiled Belgium Wood
History of Decorative Wood
Design panels, which can be found in palaces, castles, prestigious homes, as well as commercial buildings, reflect contemporary design trends while respecting the timeless craftsmanship of the past. They represent the luxury and grandeur of the Palace of Versailles. Developed to replace marble floors in 16th-century France, they were expensive to install and maintain. The textural interest of design panels adds depth and creates a strong design statement. Their elegance and geometrical sobriety match all kinds of interiors. The Design Panels are statement making and are available in all colors in the collection.
More than Just Floors
The continuous running patterns, such as a braid or the falling cube are perfect for use in difficult shaped rooms, as they are non-directional. They can be used as wall coverings as well, creating a truly dramatic effect for a strong design statement.
Craftsmanship is our Passion
Our wood partners pride themselves on craftsmanship. There is a commitment to making unique products at the highest level that are designed and crafted with vision and passion. Created according to the latest design trends in mind, they are perfected by oils, varnishes and stains specially developed for today's market.
Reclaim, Refurbish, Revere
Taken out of some of Europe's most beautiful old homes, providing true sustainability and a reclaiming material approach, Paris Ceramics is a leading importer of antique, reclaimed oak. Our representative in France and Southern Europe sources this material while they are hunting for antique stone. They find some of this beautiful, cast off wood at the same time. After shipping it to the US, it is hand cut, de-nailed, brushed, and finished in North Carolina's wood shops. This hand work to what started out as very battered wood, produces a one-of-a-kind- floor for today's contemporary homes as well as traditional spaces. This wood is available in 3 ½", 5", and 9" widths and is often cut into chevron and herringbone finishes. This material truly provides a magnificent statement for both large and small spaces. Although never in a perfect shape, this patina'd look will create depth in color and aging that is unrivaled.
