The return of parquet

Parquetry is an ancient decorative technique, normally used in the floors of palaces and stately homes, but today we’re seeing it in a whole new light. It’s being used by furniture designers to decorate everything from sideboards to table lamps; so, if you can’t afford parquet flooring in your house, now, you can get your piece of parquet.

Parquet on furniture? Yes! Just take a look at this sideboard design by wewood- a beautiful marriage of oak and walnut.
