Walking on Wood - Parquet Flooring Specialists

Walking on Wood, London W11, offer a bespoke design, supply, fit and guarantee service for all types of hardwood parquet flooring - for heritage buildings, civic interiors and private houses.

Parquet flooring is an ideal flooring solution providing a tough, durable and visually pleasing hardwood flooring surface.

Suitable for solid floors usually ground level, concrete floors - parquet flooring creates a welcoming and hard wearing flooring surface to hallways and living spaces.

The technique of parquetry involves gluing small hardwood blocks onto a solid sub-floor to create decorative geometric patterns. Originally the blocks were set in place using hot bitumen, but contemporary parquetry uses modern specialist cold glues.

Parquetry started in Germany and the Low Countries, being introduced into France in the seventeenth century and then into England in the late part of that century.

Many exquisite examples of early parquetry can be seen in historic palaces and country houses such as Versailles, Hampton Court and Boughton House (Northamptonshire).

Fine examples of domestic parquet can also be found in England in the form of herringbone patterned parquet flooring popular in the Edwardian era (about the first two decades of the twentieth century).
