Parquet Flooring Makes a Comeback

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Events and Happenings

Remember parquet flooring? Parquet flooring uses arrangements of wood-block flooring to create geometric patterns and mosaics for decorative effect. The durable patterned wood flooring seen in pre-war housing–and NBA floors–is making a comeback in the residential market. Now, the old material is being re-imagined with new finishes and contemporary designs.

The return of wood-block parquetry along with other carpet and flooring trends debuted at the Surfaces 2011 trade show last week in Las Vegas. Those trends include the continuing popularity of all types of wood flooring, especially wide-plank wood flooring, eco-friendly flooring such as cork and bamboo, and ceramic tile flooring in large formats, bright colors, and wood patterns. Technologically advanced engineered wood flooring is enabling manufacturers to produce even more versatile and innovative flooring than before.

Ambassador Floor Company in Chesterfield, Mo., has a variety of flooring options, including carpet, laminate, vinyl, luxury vinyl, natural stone, and wood. Check out our post about 2011 home fabrics trends.
