Behold the intricate beauty of parquet flooring, the hardwood planks that exude elegance, luxury, and prestige. Introduced in 16th-century Italy, it brought a timeless appeal to Italian nobility palaces and lounges. Introduce the classic aesthetics of parquet flooring into your contemporary space to add a unique edge, and define luxury as a way of life.
In parquet flooring, wooden panels with a fixed dimension are laid in distinct, repeating patterns, making up a number of statement designs, such as the herringbone parquetry and chevron pattern. It manifests the finest artistic craftsmanship and quality.
An epitome of timeless classics and prestige, parquet flooring is a statement in any house or luxury space. Let the elegant and stylish patterns weave through your hallways, dining rooms, living rooms, and other formal places to emanate a classical flair. Parquet flooring usually comes in oak, walnut, and other hardwood species.

Both types of flooring contain real wood, but they differ in designs and properties. If you are looking for classic and elegant patterns, parquet tiles are an ideal option to add a stylish edge. However, parquet is essentially hardwood and, therefore, more expensive and not resistant to moisture and humidity.
Similar in look and qualities to hardwood, engineered wood flooring is backed by a dense plywood core instead of coming in a single hardwood plank. It is more stable but lacks the artistic handcrafted designs of parquet.
