Ever wondered what life in the 18th and 17th century must have been like? A new era of art, science, discovery and empire building was upon humanity.
The world was a wild and untamed place filled with intrigue and unexplained mysteries. The age of empires building and colonization was in full bloom. Trading posts emerged all over the world from exotic islands like the Cook Islands to isolated tribal regions in South East Asia!
Colonialists and the early pioneers from South Africa to Australia had to work with locally available building materials at first. After building huge fortunes however, many traders, land owners and raw material miners started importing the finer items in life from main land Europe while merging them with the best of local art money can buy.
Imported Italian cut-to-size Statuary, Sienna and Carrara marble floor and wall tiles were frequently being brought in to dress up the luxurious villas of the 'nouveaux riches' class. No matter where those traders resided, their homes had to compete in splendor and had to reflect the 'distinguished' taste of their owners.
From the Caribbean to Cape Town, the West Indies to Singapore, European marble floors adorned the halls and walls of those glorified trading outposts.
Nowadays, people install a reclaimed, antique marble floor that has originated from those past centers of power throughout their homes. The historic value and esthetic charm embodied in our antique marble floors are unrivaled in warmth and elegance and are unsurpassed by any other reclaimed marble material on today's market.
