A History of Quality
Originally sourced from a single quarry in the Provence region of France, our antique Gray Barre exudes unmatched warmth and character. Dating back to the 18th century, this rich and rustic limestone has a distinguishing softness that can make it particularly challenging to reclaim. It calcifies over time, however, increasing in density as its surface patinates. Due to its unique composition and characteristics, reclaimed Gray Barre is only recommended for interior use. The Gray Barre is salvaged from country homes, farmhouses, apartment buildings and smaller homes throughout Provence. First cut in similarly-sized pieces, the stone was typically laid by random lengths—lending a sense of uniformity and regularity to the installation.

Because of the individualized nature of the materials we sell, many of the products have significant variation in size, shape, color, texture and thickness. These irregularities are inherent in hand-made and natural materials such as ours. It is the responsibility of the owner/purchaser and those acting on behalf of the owner such as the designer, architect, contractor or installer to verify that the material specified is appropriate for its final application and to review and approve all materials before the materials are shipped. Samples are available on request. Samples are given as an indication of a particular product and are for reference only. Due to the inherent variation in the size, shape, thickness, texture and color of our materials, individual samples cannot be considered exact representations.
Through expert photography, every effort has been made to faithfully represent our products and materials on this website. However, due to lighting and color variations, no picture can be considered an exact representation of the material being shown.
