The beauty of Versailles wood flooring and other parquet patterns
In addition to Versailles hardwood flooring, we offer additional parquet products such as Herringbone and Chevron floors that add a sense of elegance and luxury to any room.
The Versailles wood floor pattern is created with floorboards that are cut into small squares, rectangles and triangles. These pieces are fit like a puzzle to create a large square shape with diagonals that provide a 3D interwoven appearance. The pieces can be stained different colors or made with different materials to highlight the intricacy of the pattern.
In a Herringbone floor, the boards are cut to equal widths and lengths and laid out in a zigzag pattern where each board meets another at a 90° angle. The pattern has an overlapping effect and a pleasing asymmetry that adds great visual appeal to the floor as well as a sense of movement and energy.
A Chevron floor also uses floorboards laid out in a zigzag pattern, but the ends of each board are cut at an angle so that two boards form a V shape when they meet. The result is several columns of arrow-shaped Chevrons that run the length of the room, producing a cleaner and more formal appearance than a Herringbone floor.
Carlisle design consultants can also work with you to create a custom parquet pattern all your own for a truly one-of-a-kind wide plank floor.
