Parquetry can be defined as a geometric positioning of wood pieces used for a maximum decorative effect. There are two types of styles in parquetry, mosaic and block parquetry.
Mosaic is the more traditional style of parquetry. It is created by arranging small “fingers” of selected timber in tiles, then changing the direction of these rows at consistent intervals. The result is a beautiful floor which is a feature in your home, not just a floor covering.
Block parquetry can be laid in any pattern using contrasting coloured timbers to create depth in the design. Blocks of timber are manufactured and are laid individually to create the pattern of your choice. There are many popular patterns that can be laid in block parquetry, or you can run wild with your imagination and design your own floor pattern or feature block.
