What is Parquetry Flooring?

A technique that dates back centuries, this results in unique, stunning floors that are sure to impress your guests. From famous sports stadiums to ancient cathedrals, you will find gorgeous parquetry flooring in many different locations all over the world.
Homeowners with an eye for creative and beautiful designs will find that parquetry flooring is perfect for them. It provides you with an abundance of patterns, which can fit in nearly every property. Whether in block or mosaic form, the individual design choices are limited only by the owner’s imagination and the installer’s skill.
