Parquet Wood Flooring
Parquet wood floors are a type of flooring made up of small pieces of wood arranged in a geometric pattern. There are several different types of parquet wood flooring, each distinguished by the pattern, shape and size of the individual pieces. Popular designs include herringbone and chevron.
The word ‘parquet' comes from the French word ‘parqueterie’, which means a patterned floor. Parquet wood flooring can encompass many different styles including diamond, mosaic, basket weave, or brick. All of which are eye-catching and have high design qualities.
Each type of parquet wood flooring is made of wooden blocks laid together to form a decorative pattern. From the iconic elegance of classic herringbone to the modern alternative of chevron, these exquisite wood floors are statement artworks. Parquet wood flooring can add a classic and contemporary twist, and can be a great choice for both traditional and modern interior design styles.
