Chestnut strand woven parquet block throughout a living room, hallway and study.


A total refurbishment of a stunning central London apartment used bamboo flooring throughout the living room, hallway and study.  This involved over 70m² of Chestnut Parquet Block Strand Woven Bamboo, which has been installed in a herringbone pattern with an added border to create elegance and sophistication.

By choosing parquet block bamboo flooring, this homeowner instantly had a variety of options when installing the floor.  Parquet blocks can be used to create a number of geometric patterns.  On this occasion, the traditional herringbone style was chosen, with an additional border intricately placed around the perimeter of the room.


Strand woven bamboo is a great choice for any busy home.  The raw strands of bamboo have been compressed together to form a solid and hard block of bamboo flooring.  This is perfect for any busy areas such as hallways and living spaces.  It is also very easy to look after and requires very little maintenance.

By choosing bamboo flooring, the homeowner was very happy with their “cost effective alternative and ecological choice”.  Bamboo is a sustainable and eco-friendly flooring option.  The bamboo plant grows quickly and can be harvested without destroying the forests. The root of the bamboo continues to grow, without the need for re-planting, meaning that the forest creates abundant harvests year on year.

This particular type of bamboo parquet block has a chestnut brown colour stain added to give a deep and rich dark brown colour, which looks amazing throughout this apartment. The colour scheme the homeowners have used, really works well with the dark bamboo.  The surface of the flooring has intentional distress marks, which offer a rustic character to this amazing home. The homeowners are very happy with the quality and the surface finish of the bamboo and would happily recommend it to friends and family.

“We are very happy with how our flooring looks and feels.  It is very easy to keep clean, is a quality product and looks classy.  It elevates an already lovely flat to another level.  We would have no hesitation of using it again.”
