Parquet Flooring

Havwoods' Parquet selection is comprised of the best known patterns, such as chevron and herringbone, as well as the absolutely stunning Versailles pattern which is once again becoming popular throughout the continent. The complexity of installation meant that Parquet was traditionally considered a symbol of status, however modern milling methods now make beautiful, decorative flooring an option that is available to all. 

What is Parquet Flooring?

A Parquet floor is traditionally made of wooden blocks, arranged into geometric shapes to create a stunning patterned floor. The individual sections are interlaced to present an array of different tones and grains, resulting in beautifully contrasting textures that show the natural wood finish at its very finest. Even though the finish may have  a delicate appeal, as with all wood floors, Parquet flooring is incredibly hard-wearing. Havwoods Parquet range is predominantly made from engineered wood, retaining the durable characteristics of a wooden floor, without compromising on the wide variety of finishes, tones, textures, and patterns with which Parquet has become synonymous. 

popular Parquet flooring patterns 

'Parquetry' is the established name for the art of creating intricate geometric mosaic patterns from small sections of wood for decorative effect. Despite the name 'Parquet' being most commonly associated with one particular design, the term actually covers a wide variety of different styles and patterns, the most popular of which is Herringbone. The popularity of different parquet patterns does tend to change throughout the world, with Europeans favouring Herringbone and intricate Versailles patterns, whereas the classic Chevron is a very popular choice in North America. Havwoods' selection contains all of the most popular patterns, as well as specially created additions from our own design team, such as the stunning Aliman Rustic panel.   

Is a Parquet Floor Difficult to install?

Traditionally, the art of creating detailed and intricate patterns from wood could take a craftsman several weeks to complete, depending on the floor area. This is because each individual block would need to be cut and sanded to create a seemless and hard-wearing finish. Nowadays, milling machinery is able to cut wood to such a fine tolerance that the resulting wooden blocks fit together with incredible accuracy. Many of our flooring parquet patterns are also provided as pre-made sections, with the most intricate detail being completed in our facility, enabling you to cover large areas in detailed patterns with the greatest of ease.
