"The Versailles floor structure is dominated by regular patterns, straight lines that contrast with diagonal lines. The combination of the two directions creates a harmonious and very characteristic pattern. Original dimensions of the old Hungarian parquet are 97-103 cm per side. Interlaced wooden boards at angles of 45° are surrounded by a frame and all the composition outlines the structure of the single square.
Essences used for the Versailles marquetry are varied and all with very different characteristics. Both warm and cold shades blend well with the interweaving of the motifs, and the combination of the different veins and natural shades of wood - even of different essences - creates a surface rich in color and unexpected color combinations.
The solid oakwood is a solid and full-bodied wood, perfect for the floor in ancient Versailles, especially if derived from reclaimed wood, worked with a raw finish in the first patina. In this case the surface acquires a unique charm given by the imperfections that over time have changed the wood fiber.
Ideal in all types of furniture thanks to its simplicity, depending on the essence and workmanship, the Versailles marquetry lends itself well to be declined both in rustic and luxury settings. In the last case, with the ancient flooring of Versailles, it is possible to rediscover the charm of the seventeenth-century palaces and Italian villas of the following century. An austere beauty but made lively by wood, a natural and lively material, susceptible to influences of the environment and those who live it."
