Parquet Flooring

Parquet flooring is where individual pieces or blocks of wood are fitted together to form a patterned floor. Usually, but not necessarily, these patterns are geometric in shape, and the most popular of them are created using four-sided blocks. The best known patterns are chevron and herringbone, although basket weave, Flanders weave or brick patterns in both stack bond or stretcher bond are also absolutely stunning, and the classic pattern know as Versailles is once again becoming popular. The complexity of installation meant that parquet flooring was traditionally a sign of wealth, but modern milling methods now make it a truly beautiful option open to all.

Modern parquet flooring options 

Dating back to seventeenth century France, the earliest well-known examples of parquet flooring are in the Palace de Versailles. Individual wood blocks were used to replace the marble flooring because the joists beneath the marble were rotting away due to constant washing.

Until recently the individual blocks used to create parquet were only available in solid wood. Installing was a time consuming process, even for experienced fitters, since the blocks had to be sanded down and finished with numerous coats once in place on site. But in the last 10 years pre-finished blocks have become available in both solid and engineered wood. The latter are often available in larger dimensions than is traditional, resulting in a more contemporary parquet pattern, and are often suitable for installation over underfloor heating.

Now Havwoods are also available to offer parquet flooring in even more labour-saving options. Both our chevron and Versailles patterns are available in pre-finished, pre-assembled panels, making installation a truly simple operation.

Design your own parquet floor

To create a totally unique, really complex parquet floor you need a team of talented carpenters experienced in laying floors. Alternatively you can enlist the help of Havwoods Bespoke. This is precisely what designers Virgile and Partners did when they wanted to reproduce the intricate pattern of triangles, rhombi and trapezoids devised for Harvey Nichols in wood. So too did consultancy United Designers for the flooring in the Cambridge House apartments at One Tower Bridge. You design the concept and Havwoods Bespoke will deliver it, fully finished, in easy to install engineered panels.
