Parquet en français



Among the most famous types of parquet floor, the Versailles panel would be the first to come in mind.

Obviously prevalent in the prestigious Château de Versailles, the Versailles panel has been also largely used in a lot of other castles and bourgeois houses.

Roubo de Mazerolles, a cabinetmaker of the 18th century, has codified the making rules of those panels to a large extent. Here is an extract of his work 'L'Art de la Menuiserie' (1769).

Another classic is the Point de Hongrie parquet.
Also mentioned by Roubo de Mazerolles, it can be seen in the following engraving:
