The iconic herringbone pattern
A modern floor with a rich history
In recent years, the timeless form of herringbone has found its way into modern interiors. The herringbone pattern has flair and brings a lot of warmth and character to your home. Did you know that we owe this pattern to the Romans? They discovered that streets made with a herringbone pattern in brick lasted considerably longer. Only since the 16th century has the herringbone pattern also been used in homes. Especially as wooden floors.
A herringbone fits everywhere
By playing with the colours, sizes and finishes, herringbone fits into any interior.
You can soften or enhance the visually appealing geometric pattern by choosing a particular wood species and colour variation. For a modern look, lay the herringbone wall-to-wall without skirting boards. Are you a fan of Scandinavian interior design? Then choose a light natural shade. Warm darker shades are an ideal basis for the immensely popular Japandi theme, which combines Japanese elements with the Scandinavian interior style.
A more classic, but still clean approach can be obtained by edging the herringbone with a design strip. In a contrasting colour, this gives just that touch of extra character.
Create your unique herringbone with these tips
Go for two different floors yet one sense of style in your home and choose the same wood pattern in planks for one area and herringbone for another. This way, you can define zones in your home and evoke a different atmosphere in each room.
Go for more colour variation by combining planks in two colours within the same wood pattern. Exciting combinations are: Moduleo Layred Laurel Oak 51230 and Layred Laurel Oak 51282 or Moduleo Layred Blackjack Oak 22205 and Layred Blackjack Oak 22218.
Go one step further and create a real eye-catcher by combining not only different colours, but also different wood patterns. For example, the combination of Moduleo Country Oak 54852, Blackjack Oak 22229 and Blackjack Oak 22220 creates a truly rich floor!
