Parquet Flooring: Diamonds and Ladders and Herring, Oh My!

Herringbone, chequerboard, ladder, strip, chevron, diamond. . . . so many pretty patterns. The world of parquet is endless!

Wanting a change? The original floors not up to scratch or non-existent? Or simply fancy just making your floor 100% fabulous? Whatever the case, if you’re planning a new floor choose parquet. It offers character, warmth and a feeling of understated luxury.

Popular in 17th century Versailles, often found in grand historic homes, country estates and royal palaces, it’s not hard to see why parquet is the luxury floor and often with a considerably high price to match its luxurious origins, or does it?

With parquet making such a big comeback there are a number of options out there to suit your requirements and your pocket. Here we take a look at a few alternatives to suit you:



Meister’s Engineered Oak Chequerboard Parquet

Reminiscent of the 60’s and 70’s but brought to life in a modern yet rustic way.
