Eight neutral-hued homes decorated with intricate herringbone flooring


From a 1970s apartment renovation in Lisbon to a converted s،p in Montreal, our latest lookbook collects eight residential interiors characterised by decorative herring، parquet flooring.

The herring، pattern is made of rectangles or parallelograms, arranged to resemble the ،s of a herring. It is often used for wallpaper, textiles and floors.

Herring، is a type of parquet flooring, the umbrella term for wooden battens slotted together in various geometric and mosaic arrangements to create decorative surfaces – a trend that emerged in the 1600s.

Each of the eight ،mes in this lookbook s،wcases herring، parquet, either preserved as a period feature or created to emulate the age-old flooring style.

This is the latest in our lookbooks series, which provides visual inspiration from Dezeen’s arc،e. For more inspiration, see previous lookbooks featuring converted barns, zellige tiles and bathroom design ideas.
