The unique charm of the Loire region is affirmed by anyone who visited the Louvre Palace or the residence of French kings. The buildings are renowned for their richness and finely fitted wooden floors. They inspired us to develop a Chevron line – an elegant and functional floor to be fitted in a French herringbone pattern.
Chevron is a unique finished floor – short sides of individual planks are cut at 45-degree angle, thus forming a shape of an arrowhead. Cutting planks during the production process shortens fitting and guarantees high-quality installation of the complicated pattern, which would be very difficult if each plank was cut separately. Contrary to a traditionally fitted French herringbone floor, a Chevron floor does not require post-fitting sanding, filling or varnishing. It also has an unprecedented tongue-and-groove connection at a front edge – so far fitters have had to work with so-called biscuits.
A Chevron floor reminds of bygone eras. The floor is a perfect match for decorative interiors of suburban residences or renovated manors. The pattern is increasingly often applied by architects as a finish of the suburban Scandinavian-style or avant-garde interiors. Planks are best for large rooms, whereas parquet will optically enlarge smaller interiors.
