Provence

Provence is a rectified Italian glazed porcelain tile that updates French Limestone tile and Belgian Bluestone tile looks. Modern modular tile pattern sizes include 12" x 12", 12" x 24" and 24" x 24" formats. The Provence tile series is available in four contemporary field tile colors: Ivory, Grey (‘Cloud’), Black (‘Coal’) and Taupe (‘Ecru’). Best Tile has successfully updated a traditional look by crafting a modern interpretation of French Limestone tiles on a screen and color palette that is muted, elegant and consistent. This series can be designed with individual porcelain field tile formats or with a modular tile pattern approach. Provence is rated PEI 4 for all light commercial and residential settings.
