Original antique old recycled parquet flooring fitted in a herringbone design


Parquetry is its technical name and came about due to the creation of different sized oblong shaped blocks of wood that fit together in geometric designs.

Parquet flooring dates back to the mid 1600s and originated in France, possibly at the palace of Versailles. Often, wood from different species of tree would have been used for the effects that can be achieved due to their contrasting colours. Originally the tiles were bonded to the floor using hot bitumen which is a tar like substance but these days, cold adhesives are used which, thanks to modern technology are far more effective and make for an extremely stable floor.

Herringbone is the most popular design and normally comes in a tongue and groove fit. Original designs can be found in Edwardian houses in the UK, the most common pattern would be a ‘three finger’ style square pattern made up of three blocks or lozenges fitted together to make a square.

Parquet or Parchet as it was known to the French aristocracy has evolved with the same speed as standard solid and engineered wood floors the only difference is the creative license you can use when designing your parquet floor.

Original parquet floors were glued to concrete and hand scraped before finish, this was developed from blocks to triangles and finally long planks. The staining of the parquet blocks is purely personal as was the material used.

Oak is highly sought after today but the majority of the parquet was a hardwood.

Parquet and wood floors in general lost its appeal in the 1930’s due to the invention of carpet and lino floors. However Parquet is making a real comeback not only because of the look but wooden floors in general are much healthier as they do not harbour dust like carpets do.

Parquet floor, once laid, is a truly beautiful addition to any home it is warm underfoot looks truly amazing and it is above all very hard wearing and it is a very good investment for any property as it is a real selling point.
