For centuries, traditional parquet floors were crafted from staves of dark timber and laid in intricate patterns. Today, classic herringbone floors are still popular but a lot easier to look after! Patterned floors are now also available in lighter wood species and in a variety of new 'traditional' looks, like boxed basket weaves, criss-cross designs and classical wide planks.

With so many varieties to choose from, virtually anything is possible. To make the most of your living space, choose wider boards for large rooms and thinner strips for smaller areas, to create an illusion of space.
