The New Kind of Parquet.

Warmer weather means bare feet and outdoor adventures. I imagine relaxed interiors with natural materials infused throughout. Now I’m staring at a beach. Ahhh… where are you summertime? In the meantime, while I wait to wear my British tan leather sandals I picked up  in St. Tropez, I’ll be specifying the new Laguna Parquet collection at Patterson Flynn and Martin, a collection of  100% abaca fiver rugs that mimic the look of classic parquet flooring.

Classic French parquetry, introduced in 1684, involved using a geometric mosaic of wood pieces for complete decorative effect. The designs in the Laguna Parquet collection are similarly geometric and abstract but classic in an area rug style. Hand woven with careful attention to detail, the finished product is a thick abaca rug with pattern that can not be replicated in machine-made rugs.

Coiled and hand-woven abaca fibers are some of the strongest natural fibers available on the market. It’s indigenous to the Philippines and is related to the banana tree (did you know that a banana tree is actually a herb, and not a tree?). So there’s no doubt that these beautiful floor coverings will deliver years of comfort and visual beauty for your urban city home or ocean front retreat.
