PARQUET: Made it hardwood flooring trends this year as well
Parquet flooring is very popular in Europe, you can see it in hotels, restaurants, museums, and more. This year designers and homeowners are using herringbone and chevron patterns to create a showpiece in different spaces, even using the patterns for walls or ceilings.
One second!! In case you don't know - What is parquet flooring?
One technique we do often is matching the chevron or herringbone color to create regular planks, that way the parquet floor can be installed in some areas of the home like the living room or dining room and the rest of the home with regular planks, maintaining the same shades for the parquet and regular planks. This avoids the space to busy with a lot of parquet.
The most popular ones are herringbone, chevron, and parquet the Versailles.

FRENCH OAK: Another leading trend in hardwood floors
French Oak is one of the most exquisite wood species. Our French Oak hardwood flooring uses only Oak from France because it has a higher tannins level than any other Oak around the world. The higher tannin reacts better in the aging process, giving the wood a beautiful patina and an aged look. We use character-grade French Oak because it has the most beautiful cracks, knots, and tight wood grains that no other wood can match. Each board is handmade with love and dedication.
