History of the Herringbone Design
Pointing to herringbone’s truly timeless credentials, one of its first appearances in a flooring context can be found in the Francois I Gallery at the Chateau de Fontainebleau, installed in 1539. From the first Roman roads, to wider adoption during 16th century France, finally bringing us to today’s modern interior trends, Herringbone has a long history as one of the most popular forms of parquet flooring.
Whether it’s utilised in a modern space or alongside retro influences, its inherently timeless, simple design proves to be a striking choice for floors.
When looking for flooring to suit traditional interiors, herringbone adds both drama and elegance whilst accentuating authenticity. Darker, wood-effect applications of the herringbone pattern are excellent when it comes to interior themes steeped in history.
