Options for parquet floors from Carlisle
Along with the Versailles wood floor pattern, we offer Herringbone, Chevron and custom parquet floors that can add great visual interest to room.
Herringbone is a highly popular parquet pattern using floorboards of equal width and length. The end of each board butts up against the next at a 90° angle, forming a zigzag pattern with a great sense of movement across the floor. Herringbone has a pleasing asymmetry, as each board seems to overlap another, and the geometry of the parquet adds energy and visual appeal to any room.
A Chevron pattern also is laid out in a zigzag fashion, but the ends of each board are cut at an angle so that when they meet, they form a perfect V. The result is a floor with long columns of Chevron-shaped arrows, providing a strong sense of movement and energy but a slightly cleaner, more formal look that works beautifully for modern hardwood floors.
In addition to a Herringbone, Chevron or a Versailles pattern wood floor, our consultants can work with you to create a custom pattern for a truly unique wide plank floor.
