This was indeed a beautiful floor - however it has since fallen under the hammer of a remodel......

Yes, it does look like the Bacall sectional from Macy's.

Hi Tracey, I'm attempting to replicate these floors. Can you share type of marble and where I might purchase?

Yes. Cynthia, I understand. That's the problem. I know what I covet having spoken with interior designer from Utah (J. Scott Anderson) who worked on a Cameo home with similar alternating diamond pattern. They were kind enough to share spec's. I simply am unable to source for 3 weeks. I even attempted to work with tile shop! It's the Lycian Collection - Letoon White Marble and Lycian Glaucus Black - Turkish I believe. Might you have any sources? Thank you.

Ah Jeffrey, I'd have to look around here, and a Toronto area source wouldn't be any good to you either, I think. :(

I looked up Lycian Collection and they aren't in your area. I suppose they could ship to you, but what sort of quantity of tiles would you be wanting? Is price an object? :) Lycian Collection doesn't sell to the public but they do to the Trade so it's possible I could arrange something for you.

More details would be helpful.

But these are not 24 or 30" tiles as they appear ~ a close look reveals that there are actually 4 tiles in each one "square" and the grout in the white ones is light and the grout in the black ones is dark....hence my question. I usually spec zero grout line whenever possible but grout still does show so I'm just wondering how the tile setter did this....See the 4 tiles comprising one? That's what I mean.

Yes, I see that there are 4 tiles per square...
...I also see that the same color grout appears to have been used all the way around, as the black squares have the same grout as the white squares. The designer apparently split the difference and chose a medium toned grout.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Paul Anater added this to Dare to Choose a More Colorful Neutral
As I mentioned at the start of this ideabook, black, white and gray are true neutrals. Combining black and white in a checkerboard is about as strong a pattern as it's possible to have. Using a near-neutral red on the sofa allows for the introduction of red (which always looks terrific with black and white) without detracting from the bold floor. The designer picked a red with enough black in it to tone it down while keeping enough yellow in it to keep it red.
Jason Ball Interiors, LLC added this to Hollywood Glamour In Black, White and Red
Throw in a red piece of furniture for added drama. This dynamic and bold design is accomplished through the high-gloss diamond patterned floor partnered with the deep red sofa. It is a very eye-catching and striking combination.
Shawn Gauthier added this to 16 Ways to Check In to Checkered Patterns
1. Flooring Need I say more with this picture? (Am I the only one drooling?) The oversize checkered pattern finished in high-gloss is apt to take your breath away. Pair it with a red sofa and boom: This living room is spiced with sophisticated drama.
