Parquet Flooring
Bookmark and Share

image 1Parquet flooring was popular between the Edwardian and Thirties period. Parquet flooring is most suitable for solid floors i.e. concrete, which would most likely to be on the ground floor of the house like the hall and living space. Parquetry is small blocks of hardwood glued down onto a subfloor providing a hardwearing surface to cater with daily life. The block would be laid down in a geometrical pattern to create a decorative effect; the herringbone pattern was most popular.
