Each tile is handcut to create that nuance that only hand crafted work can create. Each Fleur de Lys motif is carefully cut out of black mable then inlaid into this 'dirty white' marble which has been chosen for its 'old look'.
The tiles are them ground and rubbed by hand creating gentle undulations on the surface for that beautiful 'feel' and play with the reflecting light.
These inlaid Fluer de Lys tiles are also available in various stone combinations. These inlays are inspired by the ancient skill of Pietre Dure where precious stones are inlaid to create floral and geometric patterns. This flooring is perfect for high end residential and commercial projects. Available in various colour combinations.
Other Sizes Available: Yes
Finishes: Custom, Hand Finished, Handcut, Handmade, Inlaid, Matte, Patinated, Polished
More about Inlay:
Decorative inlay is a technique whereby different materials, often contrasting are set into depressions in the substrate of the field material and then often ground flat.
The technique of inlay has been applied to wood (known often as marquetry), stone and marble (known often and Pietre Dure or Opus Sectile) and to Metal.
De Ferranti can inlay into most substrates, and is able to combine mother of pearl, bone and horn, metal, wood, glass, marble, stone and semi-precious and precious materials.
Some of the items in this category have categories of their own as they are more specific, for example the craft of Pietre Dure. This section tends to focus on more updated methods of these old techniques.
