Herringbone parquet is a classic European pattern that is made from blocks and assembled on a right angle that creates the typical V shape. While the pattern was used in interiors from Roman times though the Middle Ages, it was only in the 16th century that the design began to be used in wooden floors.  Herringbone is known to be one of the first parquet pattern developed in Europe. In 1539, Francois the first, King of France, used this design on is Fontainebleau castle in Paris. It was designed and produced by Italian craftsman whom Francois had hired away from Italy and immediately started a fashion in patterned wood flooring.

 

Chevron parquet (also know as Hungarian point) is a classic European pattern that is made from blocks cut at various angles. This angle difference changes the way the light reflects on the rows and gives the floor a more directional feel.It was made popular by well-known Baron Haussman, when mandated by Napoleon III to renovate Paris buildings and parks. Nowadays, this pattern is still widely used in Parisian apartments.

SQUARE ON SQUARE

Square on square Mosaic finger parquetry was a common flooring choice in the 1950's to 1970's. It was widely used through domestic and commercial works, offering an 8mm solid timber that could be refinished.  Depending on the time and  manufacturer, they were available in four to eight fingers, metric and imperial sizes. Over 50 years of service, some are becoming loose due to water damage, glue failure, or thinning due to re-sanding. Repairs to these areas is an economically alternative that allows the existing floor to remain in service.
