Distressed, aged and gorgeous...why when it comes to authentic old world European building materials - the dichotomy of distressed, aged AND gorgeous becomes a litany of adjectives we like to see in one sentence?  Gorgeous would be the word for our Vintage Mill 18th Century French Oak Floors - aged and distressed...pre-stained as well...these floors are such easy installs for the home builder.  No sanding on site, distressing or staining - it's a home owners dream floor because the color and textures are present as soon as the material arrives on site.  We had a recent photo shoot for our French Oak Flooring...enjoy the close up shots.  Notice the French grain, so elegant...and the knots adding character.  But most of all, notice just how old these floors look.  There is so much wood in America...but Pavé Tile's 18th Century Vintage Mill French Oak Floors are achieved by incredibly skilled European artisans - some of the best wood craftsmen in Europe. See for yourself from the recent photo shoot!

Comparing other companies with similar flooring, please ask some of our competitors just how the installation process proceeds.  Buying wood from Europe does not mean it's French oak...and having to hire their installer to sand, age and stain the wood in your home does not mean you are going to receive the floors that they so beautifully promote in their exquisite photos.  Then add up the cost...their wood untreated, uninstalled plus the hours of labor to then install the wood to make it look old...and you soon get the idea.  Pavé Tile works and has very close tiles with one of the best French Oak Wood suppliers and artisans in France.  It's all about the relationships - honest relationships that allow us to offer what we show.  We remain honest to our product and honest in our relationships.

  1. All distressed and aged flooring reminds me of old times. The wide plank design adds extra to this feeling. Reclaimed floors definitely carry that unique look and feel. If an engineered flooring can give all these great extra feelings (or at least very similar), than I would say it is the winner for me.

  2. Reserve de France ® Hardwood flooring receive the upmost attention to detail throughout every step of their creation. We have direct relationships with National forests in France , and giving us access to the highest grade French oak lumber and allowing us to hand select each log that your floor is crafted from. From there, each board of your new floor is hand crafted to a high standard in Reserve de France. Every individual log we use can be traced back to responsibly harvested and verified sources from French sustainable forests. In these certified forests, selective cutting is the manner to harvest logs without destroying the forest. Reserve de France - Producer of Solid and Engineered French Oak Hardwood Flooring ready to lay. The logs are "live sawn" in a horizontal manner only. After cutting, the boards are naturally air dried for 12 to 24 months. Before production into wide planks for flooring, the planks are slowly kiln dried for 30 days for added stability and to bring the moisture content to indoor levels. At this production time, we also use the high tannin content of the French Oak to accelerate the aging process to give different natural colors to the flooring plank without using any artificial coloring or stain.
