Herringbone Parquet Flooring

The beauty of Herringbone parquet flooring

Herringbone parquet flooring has been adding luxury and beauty to stylish homes and manors since the 16th century. Today, herringbone and other parquet wood flooring is experiencing a surge of interest as homeowners everywhere seek to create custom flooring solutions that add elegance and visual interest to their interiors.

At Carlisle Wide Plank Floors, we offer Herringbone parquet flooring in solid hardwoods as well as two collections of engineered parquet flooring. Our Studio Herringbone Collection and our Manhattan Herringbone Collection feature engineered White Oak parquet flooring that is ideal for industrial flats and penthouse lofts, as well as installation over radiant heat, on concrete slab or below grade. The Studio Collection features five classic stain colors, while the Manhattan Collection offers six on-trend colors to create contemporary parquet flooring that serves as a visually stunning backdrop for cosmopolitan interiors.

What is Herringbone parquet flooring?

Herringbone parquet flooring features rectangular floorboards that are laid out in a zigzag pattern, where the end of one board meets the next at a right angle. The effect is a visually appealing geometric pattern that infuses a space with movement, energy and sense of luxury.

Herringbone is slightly different than Chevron parquet flooring, where the ends of each board are cut at an angle so that adjoining boards make a V shape.

Herringbone parquet flooring can be made from virtually any type of wood. At Carlisle, we offer 10 types of hardwood, three species of pine and a variety of reclaimed flooring options that are all suitable for herringbone installation.

Herringbone parquet flooring can be prefinished at Carlisle’s custom shop, where the floorboards can be cut, sanded, stained and sealed under ideal conditions. Prefinishing your parquet floor will make the installation process easier and more affordable, and will let you avoid the mess, odor and inconvenience of finishing your floor after it is installed in your home.

In addition to our two collections of engineered herringbone floors, we can create parquet engineered wood flooring with a variety of hardwood veneers and in a number of standard or custom patterns.
