Is there such a thing? My last post was worded so strangely I thought I'd try again. Imagine a patio of concrete or slate pavers, all irregularly shaped and
set in concrete. Is there such a look for interior floors?

Two thoughts:

One is that irregular slate flagstone is often used for indoor floors. If can be really rustic, like this:

Do you want gray specifically? Home Depot sells some stone look porcelain that looks like a random cut stone floor from Merola in the Elba line.

RE: Flagstone Patio Look for Bath Floor

We have a black slate floor in our kitchen and I love the look. We live on top of a mountain in the forest so we tend to stick with more natural materials. At night the slate almost reminds me of a black leather floor. It isn't slippery and, while it does require occasional sealer, it is very forgiving.
The NKBA '08 1st place bathroom (1st pic in this link) has a floor similar to what you might be interested in. This bathroom is part of my inspiration and we are considering this type of tile. I think it might be slate. It comes in sheets already broken in random patterns or, you can buy the squares and have a tile professional break it and install it.
