Floor Tiles from Sainte-Chapelle, Paris
Photographs by Wendy McLean
I thought these were charming. A friend notes in the comments that these tiles were replacements from the 19th c. restoration, but this source reports that they were copies of the original medieval tiles.
Update: on further research, copies probably exaggerates their fidelity to the original. The medieval tiles of this type only rarely used more than two colors.
