The Versailles pattern is a flooring design classic. Owing its name to the fabulous Palace de Versailles, one of the world's great building projects where intricately patterned wooden floors replaced the old marble ones, the Versailles design consists of squares held together by what appears to be an interwoven mesh of wood strips, all within a wood frame.
