THE MONTICELLO STORY:
The Monticello (Italian for “little mountain”) is a classic French pattern from Baroque period.
It was made popular by third American president Thomas Jefferson who was also an architect. When visiting France in 1760 he was inspired by the Monticello design. Later on, he built his Virginian mansion and named it after the pattern he widely used.
Monticello is made of a centre square block and four borders all around cut at a 45-degree angle and can be set either square or in diagonal.
For a genuine Monticello pattern it is essential to respect width proportions, we can manufacture those panels in different sizes respecting width proportions for each block.
