About Pavé Tile
French and American husband and wife team, François and Emmi Micallef opened Pavé in 2000. With a strong understanding of what Pavé represents to them, they remain true in creating collections based on the European aesthetic. For their hand made tile collections, they use only the best hand made European terra cotta tile upon which they create in the US their signature terra cotta tile lines from original designs by Emmi Micallef. Understanding that classics will withstand trends, Emmi focuses her passion on 14th-17th century European and Moorish patterns that mix beautifully with vintage and industrial to contemporary decor. Expanding into wide-plank oak flooring arrived after many years of research when François developed techniques that mimic wood floors from 18th century France. As well, born in the South of France, Francois' contacts allow him those important relationships to import remarkable French limestone flooring, breathtaking in patina and soft color palettes. Pavé, continually evolving, will open a by-appointment only showroom in Spring 2015 as well as opening a new division of Pavé called Historic Decorative Tile in early Winter 2015.
