Parquet Wood Flooring
Parquet Wood Flooring
Parquet wood flooring can encompass many different designs. All of which are eye-catching and have high design qualities. Each type of parquet pattern is made of wooden blocks laid together to form a decorative pattern. Popular designs include herringbone and chevron.
As well as this, parquet blocks are also used to create intricate panel designs. From the iconic elegance of a Versailles panel to our own extraordinary circular designs, these exquisite designs are statement artworks. All of them ageless.
What Parquet Patterns can I create?
Parquet wood flooring comes in many designs and style. The most popular parquet flooring patterns include:
Herringbone Parquet Flooring
Made up of individual blocks, the end of each block meets the side of another in a ‘zig-zag’ pattern. These blocks can also be placed in a double herringbone pattern, a basket weave pattern, or can be used with squares to create continuous Versailles.
Chevron Parquet Flooring
The end of each chevron block is engineered to a point, often with sharp edge details to create a modern design statement. This works particularly well in transitional spaces such as hallways, corridors and break out areas.
Parquet Flooring Panels
There are many parquet panels available, Examples include:
- Parquet de Versailles
- Parquet de Chevney

Which type of wood should I use for my Parquet Style Flooring?
Parquet patterns are suited to all species and colours of wood. There are solid wood and engineered options available in a huge selection of tones and textures.
It is important to consider what design style you are looking to achieve. If you are creating a contemporary space, then a smoother surface with a micro bevel edge would be most favour, whereas if you would like your space to look more organic, we recommend specifying an undulating wood floor with a traditional hand rolled edge.
Grade is important too. Regardless of species you choose, the grading system determines the number of naturally occurring features you would find in your floor. More characterful grade such as nature or rustic have a plethora of natural features within the wood, whereas prime grade wood floors are much cleaner with less colour variation to be expected.

How do you care for Parquet Flooring?
If you have a finish that sits on the surface of the wood, such as hardened oil, UV oil, matt lacquer, satin lacquer, or naked skin lacquer, then you’ll need to use Care System 1 on our care and maintenance guides.
If you have a finish that soaks into the pores of the wood, such as burnished hardwax oil or restoration oil, then you’ll need Care System 2.
