The French Pattern in Travertine

The French Pattern, also known as the Versailles Pattern, provides one of the most distinct floor looks. It is among the most popular stone flooring styles used for both indoor and outdoor flooring. Reminiscent of a stone floor from the historic European palaces, a French pattern floor looks very elegant and impressive, specially with Travertine tiles.

The French pattern is very flexible in terms of layout. Typical tile sizes used in the pattern are as follows (other sizes are available as well on request):

A) 610x406mm
B) 406x406mm
C) 406x203mm
D) 203x203mm

Using these tiles, a number of layouts can be fashioned. For example, two popular layouts for travertine tiles are shown here.

Once a basic layout unit is laid, it is replicated and it fixes with the laid units from all direction like a puzzle, giving you a very captivating floor design.
