Walking on History: Genuine Antique Orleans Terracotta Hexagon

23 Apr 24

Terracotta floors, with their warm and natural appeal, are once again gaining popularity. The epitome of relaxed and stylish living, terracotta suits a range of interior styles and comes in a wide range of colours, reflecting the clays native to the region from which they hail.

Lapicida is one of the world’s leading specialists in the finest quality reclaimed natural stone, marble & terracotta floors. It has a wide range of original antique terracotta tiles salvaged from 18th and 19th-century buildings, predominantly located in France.
One such style is the Genuine Antique Orleans Terracotta Hexagon Tile: extremely rare and difficult to source, these red-toned hexagonal tiles have been reclaimed from the Burgundy and Loire regions of France, carefully lifted, cleaned and matched by hand to create exquisite, one-of-a-kind flooring. With both tonal and textural beauty, they add character to traditional and contemporary interiors, and are also suitable for outdoor use, depending on climate.
Authentically aged by the passage of time and use, reclaimed Terracotta tiles are the ultimate in sustainable flooring. As they are reused and given a new life, no new clay is taken from the earth, making reclaimed tiles the greener choice.
