Chevron Parquet

Chevron is similar to herringbone but has some very significant differences. Whereas the blocks or strips used for herringbone are rectangular, Chevron planks are cut with either a 45 degree or a 60 degree angle forming the shape of a parallelogram. 

These angled edges are flush aligned whereas herringbone blocks overlap.

The chevron pattern as part of parquet floor designs is believed to have been fashioned after a 16th century style of embroidery most likely named after Elizabeth of Hungary and called Point de Hongri.

For centuries Chevron parquet flooring has been a status symbol with its opulent design and the large variety of patterns and styles available.

There is a difficulty of installation where it requires a high degree of skill and can sometimes be considered close to art also contributed to the high regard of parquet.
