Cement Tile Provides French Bistro with Classic Look

Posted by William Buyok on

Cement tiles provide dramatic results for commercial spaces while offering design flexibility. The Coronet, a French-style Bistro in Tucson, Arizona, chose a classic Fleur-de-Lis pattern evocative of an era. Sally Kane, the bistro's owner, used an updated color palette in cool greens to achieve an eye-catching effect and updated look. The pattern is evocative of an era; but, the color choices are clearly fresh. 


While working with Sally on the design, she explained that, "The Coronet will be a French-style bistro. But, don't box me in. It will honor that style but not slavishly follow the tradition!" The traditional French floor tile, was a custom pattern Avente had created for a customer based on a pattern found in a reclaimed tile from Normandy that was no longer available.

The fresh cool colors of Misty Jade mixed with hints of bold Peapod that are set against a complex Pearl Grey and defining Jet Black. Yes, the pattern honors the style in a new and fresh way.
