What Is Parquet Flooring?
Parquet flooring is a beautiful decorative form of flooring made from blocks of woods woven into a mosaic of geometric patterns
These patterns that make up parquet can range from simple geometric shapes, like squares through to highly intricate decorative designs. Some names given to these patterns are checkerboard, herring bone, double herring bone and basket weave.
In olden times, particularly during 1625-1714 or what is known as the Baroque Period in France, parquet flooring was seen in the most elegant palaces and affluent homes. It was during this time when the most complex patterns were being experimented upon.
