At 600mm x 120mm, Boral Timber's new large format parquetry is double the size of its standard range.
"In the past, parquetry lent itself more to period properties and cottages," says Boral Timber's Ed Marshall. With this new range, the supplier is aiming to sell itself into more 'classic contemporary' jobs and homes. "Large-format blocks laid in a herringbone pattern are perfect for today's designer projects," Marshall says, "or for adding a modern twist to Heritage home renovations."
The new range is available in blackbutt and spotted gum species, which, says Boral Timber, are ideal for Australian conditions and have proven popular in both solid and engineered flooring formats.
"Parquetry is durable and less susceptible to gapping or movement because of the way it's laid," explains Marshall. "They also look great as they're more in keeping with the space's proportions."
