Burgundian dalles, Burgundian white stone or simply ‘dalles’ is a collective name for the French limestone from the region of Burgundy. This is a more exclusive natural stone which is known for its beautiful color shades and often has a coarse structure. This gives the Burgundian dalles therefore immediately a rural and authentic, warm appearance. The remarkable thing about the Burgundian dalles and many other types of natural stone is that they become more beautiful through use over the years.
Burgundy dalles are available in various sizes, colors and finishes ranging from sleek with a modern look to aged with a rustic look and even antiques. Some differences in designs are listed below:
From small 15x15cm drummed dalletjes to large Romanesque patterns.
Often light colors, such as cream, sand color or light gray.
Mostly square shape, but also hexagonal or in combination with cubes/cabochons.
Suitable for running bonds or wild.
Original or recuperation.
Originally, dalles were always laid in a wild state, but Burgundian dalles can also be sorted in advance on roughly equal widths and thus laid in lanes. The color schemes are therefore often light shades. The exact color of the dalles depends on the region they come from. The old dalles are becoming more and more scarce and are more expensive than the new versions because they have to be broken out, cleaned and sorted again. Because there are still quarries in France, new ones are also made. These Burgundian dalles are often aged to give an old, antique or rustic look. Sometimes it is difficult to see the differences and let you know.
