Pavillon Coté Sud Now Open!

Chers Amis de Bon Gout! Bonjour!

Today I am thrilled to announce the Pavillon Coté Sud sample show room of building materials is complete and ready for visitors here at Au Vieux Paris Antiques!

You will be able to see different flooring materials ranging from handmade, 18th century terra cotta floor tiles in two colors, along with a selection of several hand aged re-edition quarried stone dalle or bar flooring in various colors, textures and formats.

A spectacular handmade and aged re-edition of parquet de Versailles flooring is available for your reception rooms as well as pavé
 (cobblestone) for your driveway and parking areas. 

There is a selection of 18th century fireplace mantles in wood, stone or marble, as well as 18th century interior doors to enhance your rooms with tasty Provençal bon gout.

To top off your home, you will see 19th century handmade Roman barrel terra cotta roof tiles for that signature Provençal l

Please plan a visit here soon to see, touch and appreciate 
in person these very special materials.

Mes Amitiés,
Robert E. Smith
