Elegant and timeless Versailles

Traditionally, Versailles flooring is parquet flooring with an intricate interwoven pattern of boards that are cut into rectangles, triangles and squares. The pattern has an elegant geometry that provides great visual appeal and which creates a striking style statement in any home. This style of parquet flooring first started trending in the early 17th Century. However, it wasn’t until the latter part of the century that this particular design of parquet flooring piqued the interest of the wider world when King Louis XIV ordered the replacement of the high maintenance

marble floors of the Château de Versailles with intricate parquetry; thus the Versailles parquet floor was born. This set a new trend of intricate parquet flooring which then swept across the rest of France, Europe, and then the world. Due to it’s history and aesthetics, the Versailles design is now a timeless classic befitting not only of palaces, but of beautiful homes.
