Parquet and Wood floors

Wood tile floor not only for those in love with classic taste

Parquet Wood tile flooring was always the parquet floor par excellence in Imperial palaces, especially in the halls of greatest prestige or wherever the nobles danced, such as at the Palace of Versailles built in the mid-17th century, which offers a world-famous example of wide braided oak tiles complemented by strips of oak laid in herringbone.

These patterns are highly attractive even today, and not only for lovers of classic decor. New and innovative finishes and surface treatments make the patterns even more extraordinary and contemporary.

Herringbone wood floor, the prestige of the past today

Herringbone and Chevron parquet Cadorin

The geometry of a wood floor’s laying, or rather the pattern formed by the matching of its boards makes a decisive difference in defining the style of any home. Herringbone patterns that were once the rule of prestige have now returned to glory thanks to the development of new board formats. The beauty of Herringbone or Chevron patterns lies in the fact that the boards are laid diagonally in paired rows running in opposite directions that recall the perfect symmetry of the skeleton of a fish, hence the name.

Cadorin proposes wood floors in Herringbone 90° (rectangular boards laid at 90° in classic Italian style), Chevron 45°, with beveled boards, Chevron 60° with bevel and even any other tilt angle desired. Wider boards than the long, slender boards of the past can now be chosen to give floors a modern and contemporary look and feel. Even different workings and colors can be combined to create parquet with a strikingly original and impressive patchwork surface.
