A neutral color scheme and a subtle sand texture give this unique brick type both versatility and design interest. Colored in the buff family, these vintage bricks will blend beautifully with existing structures, or stand out on their own in a new build.
Old Tuscany Bricks
A wide range of colors and sizes gives installations made with Old Tuscany bricks a quintessential Old World look, such as one might see in the Italian countryside. The key to the effect is the broad spectrum of colors, from deep red and purple to orange and rose to white mortar stains.
Antique Iowa Pavers
Made by the world-famous Purington Brick Co. in East Galesburg, IL, these salvaged brick pavers graced streets throughout the Midwest for 100+ years. Now they’re ready for their next life, enhancing your home with deep, intense colors from maroon to dark purple. Authentic street wear on one side adds character that can’t be imitated.
