Chevrons in Clapham Common

It would be difficult to find a space that could not be enhanced by a beautiful wood floor, and the chevron pattern – one of the most popular – is considered to be especially fashionable right now.

The history of chevron flooring dates back to Roman times when it was discovered that roads could be made a lot more stable by pointing the bricks in the direction of the traffic in a herringbone pattern – known then as ‘opus spicatum’ or  ‘spiked work’ – which eventually gave rise to the trend for geometrically configurated wood flooring that has continued to this day. The chevron pattern is known as ‘point de Hongrie’ after a kind of embroidery stitch that came into style during the 16th century and is thought to have been named for the 13th century Saint, Elisabeth of Hungary.

The images of this chevron flooring are from a super stylish house on Clapham Common where we installed white oiled, stone aged, chevron stretch boards throughout, which blend seamlessly with the tasteful decor and were bespoke to the requirements of our customer.

It is an elegant and versatile wood – as effective in the bathroom as it is in the kitchen and living rooms – and, like all the wood flooring we offer at Marmorea, is hand made and imported from Holland.

Our superior quality Dutch engineered flooring – ranging from traditional to contemporary – includes chevron, herringbone, Versailles tile and parquet, with a choice of wide and long boards, and a large range of colours and finishes.

This flooring – exclusive to Marmorea – offers the ultimate in choice and aesthetic excellence and has the added bonus of short lead times so you could be closer to your perfect flooring than you think.
