The Broderie Design Parquet means woven or embroidered and is a copy of a French design.
Our Broderie is engineered and is made up of 150 x 450 blocks and 150 x 150 squares. The floor is normally laid at a 45° angle which gives a flowing non directional look and a little more contemporary than herringbone parquet. Because it is an engineered floor it means it can be used over under-floor heating provided that normal humidity and temperature settings are used.
The oak surface is lightly brushed to expose the grain. This enables the grain to be defined with the application of a lighter contrasting oil colour over the base colour. A similar but more modern version of ‘Liming’
Installation is either by fully bonding with a flexible adhesive or by floating over a rubber and fibre wood floor underlay with the tongues and grooves of the blocks bonded with a PVA adhesive.
The blocks and squares can be finished in one shade or the squares can have a contrasting shade and have a pre-applied hard wax oil final finish.
