Cement Tiles make a Black and White Kitchen

I ran across this kitchen a couple months ago in Vogue. It's someplace in France... I like the combination of industrial (those lights!) and the old fashioned floors. These are antique French cement tiles.

Cement tiles have a nice matte finish, and originated in France at the end of the 19th century, although they are currently made and used in both Morocco and Mexico (and perhaps others).
Want to see more? Provence Retrovee has a number of antique cement tile patterns. Exquisite Surfaces has both antique and reproduction styles.
