Parquet comes from the French term “parquetry,” meaning “small compartment.” It originated in France in the 17th Century, where artisans created elaborate designs by cutting and fitting small geometric pieces of wood together, one at a time, and then gluing them to the floor. Because of the skill and time required, parquet floors were initially the province of wealthy households and public buildings. A few of the earliest specimens still exist—such as the Galerie d’Hercule at the Hôtel Lambert, Paris—and are considered works of art in their own right.
