Balustrades, entrance steps and park entrances which can be traced back to the Gothic period of the XIX century.
Works of Master craftsmen, Journeymen, Craftsmen and Casters, the grilles, marquises, fireplace plaques, banisters, balusters and other ironwork elements reflect the excellence of a mastered know-how; but always valued by a significant and discerning public.
Floors of long ago, polished by the passage of time, in oak, marble or in terracotta, the most recent are a hundred years old. ORIGINES - Samuel Roger offers a comprehensive selection of ancient tilings (Abbaye in Bourgogne or Charente stone, Bar de Provence laid in strips or opus…), terracotta flooring (tiles, hexagonal floor tiles, rectangular tiling…) and a large range of parquets (Louis XIII wide strips, Versailles parquet). So many ancestral floors for majestic interiors.
Prestigious pieces or of simple curiosity, each one has it’s own past : Sometimes reflecting other cultures, evoking the Parisian trade fairs and great World Fairs of the past; evoking a sense of discovery and exploration concerning the works of renowned artists.
