The history of mosaic art dates back to ancient Rome where splendid patterns and depictions graced the floors, walls and ceilings of palaces and villas. Patrician homes were decorated throughout with these masterpieces of ancient times. Francois & Co. brings this ancient art to modern day, introducing cutting edge and creative designs while preserving traditional techniques and materials.
BATHROOM MOSAIC TILES
Embracing the decorative patterns of the XVII century, we created a captivating design- The Leonardo. This authentically hand crafted stone mosaic decorates surfaces in a sumptuous pattern. The Leonardo is shown here in white and grey marbles, and can be custom sized and colored to your specifications.
CLASSIC MOSAIC DESIGNS
Stone mosaic fields were quite popular in antiquity, with simple patterns often used to decorate large surfaces. These patterns have endured through time to become an important element of classical architecture. Francois & Co. crafts its stretch fields and borders in one single piece based on a provided template and custom specifications.
Shown here, the Francois & Co. Sousse Mosaic features a pattern originally crafted in the 3rd century AD in Timgad, Algeria. It is an excellent example of the distinctive floral style of Timgad, in which shapes outlined by split acanthus fronds are filled in with various colors. Francois & Co. transformed this mosaic into a pattern that is as rich as it is flexible, presenting unlimited opportunities to create a unique surface.
Each stone mosaic by Francois and Co is a oneof-a-kind creation. The texture and look of natural stone, with each tesserae individually and meticulously hand cut by our artisans, is inimitable.
Each mosaic is a unique work of art, with its own personality and "imperfections".
