Every room in a house is a sculptural opportunity that begins with form and ends with embellishing details. François & Co. applies a great tradition of passion and artistry honed over centuries to bring design projects to life. Inspired by a legacy of travels and century-old breathtaking stonework, François & Co. goes to great lengths to create stretches of versatile and distinctive stone architectural details.
The expertise of their designers, the variety of their textures and the quality of their stone finishes combine to bring homeowners powerful solutions to their design needs.
François & Co. is passionate about the preservation of authentic antique mantelpieces-- significant works of art left behind by great master carvers, thus have developed a unique way to incorporate true pieces of the past into today’s homes.
It all starts with a treasure hunt in Europe, where François & Co. source one-of-a-kind antique mantels that boast a rich heritage and unparalleled workmanship. From there, they import the pieces to their Atlanta facility, where their French master carvers work from the originals to create magnificent period reproductions in newly cut limestone or in Scagliola Stone™. The charm of their period reproductions is that they are faithfully reproduced down to every blemish; they come exactly as the originals. Their talented stone carvers capture and preserve the integrity of the original artist’s touch to create magnificent stonework.
In addition to François & Co.'s collection of Antiques and Period reproduction mantels, they also offer a line of streamlined, contemporary mantels, a collection of stone range hoods and a large selection of architectural stone accents.
In their continuous quest to make homes more enjoyable by providing innovative design solutions anchored in authentic architectural precedent, skillful craftsmanship and use of marvelous coveted materials, François & Co. now brings you a magnificent new collection of authentically hand-crafted custom mosaics. They incorporate this ancient art into the present by preserving traditional mosaic crafting techniques, while updating them with cutting-edge, creative designs that are limited only by their designers’ and clients’ imaginations.
