We can loosely define parquet, from a design standpoint, as a mosaic flooring or wall covering composed of geometric blocks revealed in patterns. These elements might typically be rectangles, squares or triangles. However, to a large degree, the sky is the limit so you may find curvilinear pieces, diamond shapes, and more. To be sure, the term is usually in reference to wood. However, modern technology now allows for a new generation of Natural Stone Parquet.
Alfredo Häberli is an Argentine-born designer currently based in Zurich. He recently made what we think is an interesting observation on flooring: “A floor can only reveal patterns and textures at second glance. The only thing that is important is that it has an effect, triggers a feeling and underlines the character of the room“. The advent and subsequent refinement of modern water-jet technology has been a game changer in the tile and stone industry. It allows a vertically integrated firm like Country Floors to create parquet patterning from a wide variety of different stones. This gives our customers the chance to achieve the goals set forth by Mr.Häberli above.
The Country Floors French Parquet Collection makes use of various parts of our core marble collections to deliver patterns as seen in this post. The color ways show a range that should accommodate most prestigious design plans.
Country Floors has locations across the U.S., in Canada and also in Puerto Rico. These finely appointed showrooms offer design consultation that may prove invaluable. Thanks for reading.
