Olde English Tiles Australia is synonymous with the tessellated and encaustic floors of Victorian and Federation architecture, fabricated using vitrified porcelain component pieces manufactured by Winckelmans of France.
However, there is another, parallel tradition of geometric patterned flooring that can be traced back to the tessellated floors of ancient Rome and the cosmatesque marble mosaic floors of Byzantine Italy and Constantinople.
OETA's tessellated marble floors bear testament to the grandeur of the past, but exercise a restraint more suited to contemporary Australian living. It is an understated luxury. These tessellated marble patterns are ideally suited to high end residential environments or commercial projects such as: bank or hotel lobbies, luxury resort bathrooms or restaurant powder rooms.
