All sorts of interesting parquet patterns can be created with battens traditionally used for a herringbone floor. Here we composed a site specific, bespoke pattern for a commercial project. The batten size was chosen specifically so the pattern carefully fits the space. Installing a complex floor like this requires skilled fitters with time served carpentry skills but equally important is that they have a ‘good eye’ to select battens based upon colour and texture to ensure a cohesive entire floor. The warm brown-grey tones and texture of Stromboli form a sound foundation to the industrial-chic scheme in this uber-cool workspace.
