The geometry of a wood floor’s laying, or rather the pattern formed by the matching of its boards makes a decisive difference in defining the style of any home. Herringbone patterns that were once the rule of prestige have now returned to glory thanks to the development of new board formats. The beauty of Herringbone or Chevron patterns lies in the fact that the boards are laid diagonally in paired rows running in opposite directions that recall the perfect symmetry of the skeleton of a fish, hence the name.
Cadorin proposes wood floors in Herringbone 90° (rectangular boards laid at 90° in classic Italian style), Chevron 45°, with beveled boards, Chevron 60° with bevel and even any other tilt angle desired. Wider boards than the long, slender boards of the past can now be chosen to give floors a modern and contemporary look and feel. Even different workings and colors can be combined to create parquet with a strikingly original and impressive patchwork surface.
