Here’s why parquet flooring is the simplest way to imbue your home with European elegance

Immediately evocative of a European heritage home, parquet flooring is a considered detail that instantly elevates any space. Despite a level of ambivalence around its origins (it is thought to have originated in Florence but with known commercial production in France in the late 17th Century), parquet flooring has been a prevalent design detail throughout history, showing up in a number of culturally important and architecturally significant buildings all over the world.

Locally Artedomus has an extensive range of exceptional French and German Oak that can be installed in a classic parquet pattern, and its expert team certainly know a thing or two about fine flooring. “Confident interior design begins at the bottom, with the choice of your floor,” the brand’s Co-Owner Richard Brasell confirms. “Parquetry, whether chevron, herringbone or Versailles panels, simply screams quality and craftsmanship.”
