Herringbone Parquet floors are always special to us. Through their pattern an eye catching effect is created. Also they have a classy and distinguished appearance.
For this herringbone parquet floor through consultation with our client we opted for a single border to underline the classical look especially because of the increased dimensions of the blocks which are actually making the floor modern.
The herringbone pattern being used already for a few hundreds of years will always create a traditional atmosphere unless the dimensions are bigger than the normal ones.
We used a border for a second reason. It allowed us to use the change of direction for an optimum alignment. As it can be seen the parquet runs lengthwise in the hallway and in the living room is perpendicular, towards the window. After installation, the parquet was lightly sanded to flatten the small ridges and finished with two coats of polyx clear oil.
