Modern Parquet Flooring

Parquet flooring for the home has experienced quite the renaissance in the last few years. Defined simply as timber flooring composed of wood blocks or “battens” laid in geometric patterns, parquet flooring has a long, esteemed history. Although its popularity waned in the last half of the twentieth century, its use, whether it is herringbone, chevron, or other patterns, has become increasingly popular in recent years. This revival, however, has shown modern parquet to depart from its earlier use and application in several distinct ways.
