I think the cabochons are 1-1/2" square.

It was thin solid stock white oak (±1/4" thk) bent to the shape. This is so it would absorb the stain the same as the rest of the oak. An oak veneer would not match once stained and would also not be as durable.

It's a custom mix color in a dark golden brown. The brand was probably Zar.

The sconce is an antique French Louis XV style gilt applique. You can find them at auction in a European decorative arts sale.

The floor is imported French limestone slab material cut into about 16" squares. They were custom cut to size by the stone installer. The cabochons are a dark marble with a honed finish. I don't remember the exact types of the stones but since slab material changes all the time as they reach different parts of the quarry, it wouldn't probably help to know anyway. You just need to go to a large marble importer's yard and pick what you like with your installer.
The walls are not tiled, it's a Stuc Pierre finish meant to replicate French limestone.

It's a faux finish we created that was inspired by a French faux finish they call "Stuc Pierre".
