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.
