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. More recent examples of these patterns can be found in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the City of Chicago Cultural Center, and the Waldorf Astoria, among others. All of our Stretch Fields and Borders are authentically hand-crafted to fit surface requirements and custom specifications.
