Parquet Flooring

Definition: Parquet Flooring

Parquet (pronounced "parkay") is a type of flooring made from pieces of wood laid in geometric patterns. Parquet comes in a seemingly infinite number of designs: The individual wood pieces can be squares, rectangles, triangles, and other shapes.

A very basic parquet floor would involve a tile-like pattern, such as the one on the left. More intricate parquet patterns, like the one at right, can have an almost three-dimensional effect.

Wood is one of my favorite things to decorate with!!! It can be so warm and homey feeling when in the right warm, golden tones! Wood grains always facinate me and parquet designs too.

I've never been a huge fan of parquet, unless it's the more interesting patterns you see in older homes.
