«Parquet de Versailles»
Until the early XVII century, the house flooring was typically made of clay or concrete, and only rich owners could afford the marble. Architects, who had been redesigning the Palace of Versailles since 1682, offered to replace marble floor with more cosy material: various wood pieces forming mosaic. The parquetry pattern named «Parquet de Versailles» became the desirable luxury attribute soon.
The royal residence of France inspires modern designers to implement modular floor coating till now, and GEOFIP team to create secure parquet adhesives protecting wood from detrimental effect of fungi.
