A True Heritage
Parquetry originates from Versailles homes in the late 1600’s. It has been a staple of grand interior design ever since.
Parquetry flooring was popular in the last century and continues to carry a trend in modern interior design. When combined with modern minimalism, its old fashion presentation creates a striking contrast. Such contrast impassions historic sophistication. Wooden parquetry does not only carry a sense of heritage, but it also brings the outdoors essence into your home. Essentially, it is inspired by classic and original patterns as well as natural textures and finishes.
Parquetry is a great way to make a statement for the interior design of your home. Parquetry has a wide range of patterns and finishes, such as Chevron, Herringbone and Classic. It is a smart investment and with the correct maintenance last for years. The sophisticated craftsmanship enables the installation of any pattern clients desire. This sophistication, nonetheless, complicates the installation process.
When it comes parquetry, just like all our products at MRFLOOR, we provide our clients with the best quality products and services, whether it’s product supply only or supply with full installation.
Parquetry and Classic Interiors
The traditional parquetry was popular within early European architect. For instance, the herringbone parquetry pattern is eccentric to many of the European landmarks. At MRFLOOR, our warm espresso finish paired with solid tumbled parquet boards, enables the recreation of such themes within your indoor spaces. The finish and distressed edges bring a convincing, almost regal, aged look for a neutral space.
We would suggest a light to medium finish, if you are looking for a flooring that rather complements your feature furniture. A lighter tone, such as Milky Coffee or Roasted Honey finish to our engineered parquet blocks, gives your spaces a cosy sense of warmth.
The herringbone pattern helps your interior space to keep a traditional theme. It reflects a sense of infinite uniformity and sparks an instant talking-point. Nonetheless, you are welcome to try other patterns such as a double herringbone or a brick-laying patterns. You may choose a unique pattern that defines your ideal space. Such unique twists to the parquets pattern make for an interesting union of modern and traditional interior design.
Parquetry and Modern Interiors
Opting for more unique trends or mixing patterns from different periods, will add exciting and unique features to your rooms. Pair a light and minimal theme with matt clear or invisible varnished parquet and classic herringbone or trendy chevron layout. This can bring a rustic twist and warmth to a modern setting.
Select a white or limed wash finish such as Dove Grey for your parquet to capture the light and create the nature-inspired Scandinavian style. The fusing of modern tones and colours with traditional flooring, as such, is the décor trend now. You can modernise your parquet floor even further by selecting brick laying pattern.
Don’t let the traditional block sizes of parquet stifle your creativity when creating your dream floors. Create something original with our wider Giant parquet blocks; consider brushing your blocks for a raised, richer grain or perhaps alternate light and dark colours for a more striking effect.
Larger Rooms and Smaller Rooms
Keep in mind that parquetry adds pattern to your flooring; therefore, in smaller rooms, this could make the space feel smaller. In order to avoid a cluttered look, make sure to furnish smaller rooms in a minimal style. Generally, parquetry works better in spacious and larger areas, where furniture not the focus of the space.
For lightly painted walls, darker tone herringbone flooring such as Onyx Pearl, creates a beautiful contrast in the room. The darker shades are best suited to larger rooms such as lounges and hallways where they can make a grand statement.
Our pale finishes such as Dove Grey and Pearl Grey are great for creating a soft and washed feel in smaller or darker spaces. And neutral finish parquetry flooring is ideal for boldly coloured furniture interior designs.
