Stone Feature: Avignon Grey Tumbled Limestone Tiles
Stone Feature: Avignon Grey tumbled limestone tiles
At the start of 2018 we introduced our beautiful Avignon Grey tumbled limestone and our customers fell in love with it just as much as we did. For those undecided on which limestone to choose, we thought a little stone feature and some more info may help you in the decision-making process!
Our Avignon is a stunning pastel grey toned tile with touches of navy mottling. It is a wonderful stone for customers who want a natural stone floor without too much variation. The blueish hue in this limestone, makes it complementary to dark blue islands or cupboards, such as the ever-popular Farrow & Ball Stiffkey Blue and Downpipe! Photos of this show-stopping barn conversion show over 100m2 of our Avignon Grey tiles laid in a stunning open-plan kitchen/living area. The exposed brick, oak beams and navy island work effortlessly with this stone.
Avignon is a tumbled limestone, this means that the surface is smooth and matt with occasional light pitting, whilst the edging is softly tumbled to create the rounder edge. A lightly tumbled finish is extremely versatile and works well in both contemporary and traditional properties.
The Avignon comes in 3 different formats – 300xFL, 500xFL and 600xFL. FL stands for Free Length, meaning the width of the tile is fixed with longer varying lengths. Due to the mixed lengths, this format results in a lovely random brick bond which is popular amongst customers who dislike the ‘tram track’ style grid grout lines. As you get varying sizes, this format works well in both larger and smaller spaces. Below is a recent photo shoot of a period cottage with our 600xFL tiles, showing how the free length format works beautifully in a smaller space.
