When natural stone is combined with the perfection of ceramic technology, the result is a timeless material where the material is the protagonist.

Supergres chose 4 different natural stones found in France and Belgium and faithfully copied their looks, their shades of colour and every single detail, recreating them using the latest generation porcelain stoneware, maintaining the original colour and characteristics of each type of stone.

When natural stone becomes ceramic, it can meet the many needs of contemporary life. French Mood reproduces 4 natural stones with different aesthetic and chromatic properties (beige Burgundy, ivory Burgundy, Pierre Bleue, and grey stone quarried in the Ardennes), for a porcelain stoneware product offering a superior technical performance, and a practical and functional surface that is not affected by the passing of time.

Supergres has reproduced two different Burgundy stones from different quarries using porcelain stoneware, reproducing every single detail of the patterns and all of the fossil elements that are a typical feature of the stone, making it in two different colours: ivory (Chalon) and beige (Saint Denis).

This «classic» yet transversal and versatile stone is surprising in how easily it can furnish modern and contemporary rooms. In order to recreate pierre bleue (Reims) Supergres faithfully copied every single detail of the characteristic patterns of this famous Belgian stone, which gives any room an unmistakable Nordic mood. The fossil elements and gentle shading create extremely natural and contemporary patterns.

The last stone chosen comes from quarries in the Ardennes and typically comes in a variety of different patterns and bold colour tones, full of shading and pattern details, in grey (Cluny). The gently textured surface underscores the depth of the pattern.
