Parquet Floors

Parquet Floors (sometimes called Versailles Floors), are a panel of interwoven of solid wood pieces that are cut into squares, rectangles and triangles, and then fitted together like a puzzle. Parquet Flooring was invented specifically for the Palace of Versailles, built outside of Paris starting in 1620 for King Louis XIV, who insisted on something never seen before in luxury residences.  Add elegance and sophistication to your home, as this flooring brings excitement and style to any room. These floors have a richness that is unmatched by other wood flooring, and have been gracing mansions, châteaus and villas since the 17th century.

Parquet Floors as seen in the Palace of Versailles outside of Paris, construction started 1614.

Don’t be confused. Many makers offer “fake” parquet which has a printed surface. Others offer a similar product, which the buyer is responsible for finishing and coating upon installation-an expensive process.

Installation should be completed by an experienced contractor or flooring expert. They adhere using epoxy glue depending on your subfloor. The flooring panels come in one size only, 24” x 24” and the design is symmetrical. The panels come finished in either lite or dark, and have a clear-coat finish on top of the finish for protection.

It is recommended that parquet floors remain wrapped in the room(s) where they will be installed for 14 days to acclimate to the atmosphere where they are being installed. They come packed 5 panels to a carton. Minimum order 50 pieces.
