Parquet is a beautiful, versatile flooring option that exudes sophistication and is a popular choice for high-end interior designers. The fashion for this popular type of flooring began in 17th century in France with the classic herringbone or fishbone design. Wooden blocks were cut from a hardwood timber and fitted one by one over the subfloor to create the stunning pattern.
It comes in a range of grains of wood that can be arranged in a wide variety of patterns. This means there’s an element of choice when it comes to creating a specific look as its patterns can suit any style and design. In addition, parquet flooring can enhance a space, act as a beautiful background to a scheme, but it also has the potential to be the focal point of any room too.
