An alternative to herringbone parquet

Chevron parquet are singular rhomboid shaped pieces of wood laid in a symmetrical pattern. Also known as Pointe de Hongrie (Hungarian Point) this patterned wood floor is derived from a style of embroidery made popular during the 16th century attributed to Princess Elizabeth of Hungary.

This style of parquet was used extensively in many of the new apartments during the rebuilding of Paris by Baron Haussmann the prefect of Napoleon Bonaparte lll and many of these floors still exist to this day.

Chevron in effect is a style of Herringbone or fishbone pattern but with a pointed V shaped joint  between rows and set at 45 degrees or 30 /60 degrees depending on how you view it. 

The Chevron pattern has even been used in medieval construction and  is also a popular pattern used in textiles. Despite it’s illustrious origins Chevron is essentially a zigzag pattern which has been found in many different cultures and civilisations throughout history.

Our Chevron Floors can be made to your exact specification with the size of the parquet and colour being made to your specific request.
