FINFloor’s chevron flooring products have a sound history behind their ongoing popularity, offering a timeless beauty & robust performance after any installation.
According to FINFloor, chevron wooden flooring has become synonymous with uber-trendy interior spaces in recent years, and their popularity continues to increase. There is an interesting history behind this versatile pattern and why it continues to be so popular, centuries after it was first used on wooden flooring.
A chevron floor is comprised of pieces of wood of equal sizes arranged in a zig-zag pattern. The wood planks are cut at an angle and the ‘zig’ meets the ‘zag’ along a perfectly straight axis. The chevron pattern has been around since 16th Century and was a replication of the popular embroidery stitch of the time – Point de Hongrie.
It was showcased at the palace of Versailles in the Queen’s guard room and extensively specified in 19th century Paris, when much of the city was rebuilt and many apartments featured chevron parquet floors. Today, in line with European trends, FINFloor imports woodline parquetry chevron in unfinished oak planks to ensure the floor is finished to exact design specifications.

Innovative three-ply engineered flooring, woodline parquetry proves to be extremely resistant to wear-and-tear and can be used in some of the most trafficked areas of a home or office.
