A sense of grandeur

Parquet floors in striking geometric patterns never fail to impress. Dating back to the late 1600s, a traditional parquet floor is made from short staves or small blocks of solid wood placed on the floor in an intricate geometric pattern. Originally found in the grandest of buildings – castles, stately homes and imposing public buildings, one of the first recorded examples of a solid wood parquet floor was installed at the Palace of Versailles in France.

Parquet floors are more popular today than they have ever been. A Herringbone floor is almost de rigueur, the floor of choice in hotels, bars, restaurants, retail and office spaces as well as private homes all over the world – a firm favourite with designers and architects.


A parquet floor brings a classic elegance to an interior. A versatile flooring option, it complements a multitude of interior styles, from the most contemporary to the more traditional. The structural grain patterns and warm feel of solid wood combined with the angular, geometric pattern contrast beautifully to create a floor which has universal appeal.

Junckers offers three versions of this much-loved design classic – Herringbone, Herringbone Plank and new Twin Herringbone. All three floors are made in solid hardwood, made without the use of adhesives or harmful chemicals.

Herringbone – a classic parquet floor made in solid Oak; staves in a choice of two sizes 58.3mm or 62.1mm wide; and a choice of two thicknesses 15mm or 22mm. A Junckers Herringbone floor is delivered untreated to be finished in oil or lacquer on site.

Herringbone Plank – an updated version of the traditional parquet floor with longer, wider staves of solid wood forming the herringbone pattern. Herringbone Plank is available in Oak or Black Oak, delivered pre-finished with a factory-applied oil or lacquer surface; staves available in two sizes 20.5mm (thickness) x 140mm (width) x 701mm and 15mm x 129mm x 775mm.

Twin Herringbone – Junckers new parquet floor with a lively appearance, also delivered pre-finished, ready to walk on as soon as it is installed. Available in Ash, Beech, Oak and Black Oak, including Junckers’ popular Nordic white-pigmented treatment in Ash, Beech and Oak.

All Junckers’ herringbone floors are durable and hard-wearing. Made in solid wood, they can be sanded and refinished many times, extending their life beyond that of most other flooring options.


A parquet floor from Junckers together with underfloor heating has been a warm, successful combination for years. Tried and tested with all major underfloor heating systems, Junckers floors are guaranteed for use with underfloor heating when installed by one of Junckers’ Approved Contractors. Junckers floors are naturally stable with a low moisture content which makes them ideal partners for underfloor heating
