History of Parquet

Parquetry flooring has been a part of history since 17th century France.

The word "Parquet" was derived from the French term "Parchet" which means "a small enclosed space".  'Parquet de Versailles' are large diagonal squares which were introduced as 'Parquet De Menuiserie', meaning "parquet woodwork", which was generally used to replace Marble the most common form of flooring back then, as Marble required regular washing which resulted in the joints underneath the floor to rot.

Parquetry In The Modern Era

These days Parquetry floors are used to showcase creativity and opulent beauty in both palaces and private homes alike. Known also for their structural strength and freedom of design, this particular flooring has often been used to replace outdated marble flooring, (for a fraction of the price) and has been hailed for not only its beauty but it's ease of cleaning and upkeep.
