    This is some really good information about parquet flooring. I had no idea that it was super popular in 17th century France. It is really cool that it is still a popular flooring option several centuries later. My sister is building a home and she wants it to be Frenched themed, and it seems like parquet flooring would be a good thing for her home to have.
