Boral releases large-format parquetry look
Parquetry flooring is as popular as ever with its classic contemporary design and Boral Timber has released a 600mmx 120mm wide Grande range in large-format blocks.
“In the past, parquetry lent itself more to period properties and cottages, especially the smaller blocks laid in a traditional weave pattern,” Boral Timber regional sales manager Ed Marshall says.
“In contrast, large format blocks laid in a herringbone pattern are perfect for today’s designer projects, or for adding a modern twist to heritage home renovations.
“Our new large-format hardwood timber blocks are approximately double the size of our standard range, and create a cleaner, more contemporary feel while still embodying the aesthetics of heritage architecture.
“Parquetry is durable and less susceptible to gapping or movement because of the way it’s laid. They also look great as they’re more in-keeping with the space’s proportions.”
The new parquetry flooring is available in Blackbutt and Spotted Gum species which are ideal for Australian conditions: “While large format oak parquetry has been available for several years now, we’re confident that our latest range using more durable Australian species will take this trend even further,” Ed says.
“People are looking for something different, more artistic, to make a statement in their homes and parquetry can meet this need perfectly. Even modern properties can now integrate this interior look seamlessly.”
