PRELUDE
Whether visiting the Palace of Versailles or
an 18th century French cottage throughout
my travels, there has always been something
so compelling about being inspired by, and
somehow transported to the past.
As a child, I remember walking for hours,
both captivated and overwhelmed, by
the timeworn facades built from the
stone, clay, and wood surrounding me.
Wandering the streets of Avignon, Paris,
Rome, Venice, and Florence, I often
found myself humbled by looking up
above my head or gazing down below at
the centuries-old stone paths leading me
through these beautiful historic cities.
I wanted to learn more and more—
trying to imagine those lives who once
cut and carved these stones, forming
the very foundation of the roads and
structures among villageslike the ones
surrounding Santa Restitude’s Chapel in
my village of Calenzana, Corsica.
I questioned where the marble had
originated, how such stones were laid
without cement and positioned perfectly
to stand centuries of wear. What were
these woods and how long have they
been here? How were they seasoned and
milled? The irregular shapes of roof tiles
glistening in the sun, how did the artisans
create such beautyand the color of the
glazes? How? Not one of these wonders
went unchallenged. I studied with my
eyes as well as my hands touching
their imperfect grains, smelling their
antiquated history, trying to unveil the
secrets to the ancient techniques that
had formed them and their structures
throughout time. My appreciation for
this skilled craftsmanship has inspired
me to try to better understand so many
forgotten techniques. One of them I
have particularly cherished is the Italian
technique of Scagliola Stonethe art
of creating unique and colorful stone
architectural elements and surfaces.
The François
& Co. Surfaces Collection
is founded upon these early childhood
memories, as we honor those artisans
who came before, and whom help carry
on the techniques and craftsmanship
today. I am proud to honor the originals
that have so captivated me, and to
introduce these superb surfaces into
today’s moderne lifestyle.

There is always something captivating about a fine,
antique, French oak floor. Long-lived, they are full
of character with their unique knots, cracks and
engraved scars. The maturation of this timeless wood
into distinguished tones and rich patina, has now
become part of its history. These woods are available
in versatile patterns ranging from rustic Planks to the
more refined Herringbone, Chevron and the intricately
woven, hand-pegged parquet de Versailles.

Often confused with walnut, Saint Amour is actually
an oiled French oak. The texture and colors were
developed specifically to evoke the character and
soul of antique French wood.
Reproducing the antique parquet down to the
finest detail, our Saint Amour Versailles captures
the sumptuous floors found in the private quarters
of Louis XIV, in the Palais de Versailles. The deep,
chestnut browns and custom distressing enhances the
parquet’s timeless, regal quality.

Dalle de Bourgogne

These French limestone pavers, reclaimed from historic
manors and farmhouses in Burgundy, date as far back
as the 13th century. Generations of wear have resulted in
pleasingly uneven surfaces. This unique, lived-in patina
makes it the crème de la crème of natural stone. As Dalle
de Bourgogne and other reclaimed limestone become
increasingly rare and hard to find, François & Co. has
developed stunning, high-quality alternatives to meet
demand, including our newly quarried collection of rustic
French limestone.
