New light oak ODEON chevron
New light oak Odeon chevron : In either engineered or solid oak, this ODEON version is in light tone oak featuring a « distressed » upper surface. This Classic chevron format of French parquet is iconic in Parisian Haussmann era apartments, chateaux and « Maison de Maître » mansion houses in general. Also known as « Hungarian Point » it is chosen for contemporary interiors too.
Each piece is an individual pointed-end (45°) board with tongues and grooves on all 4 edges. The engineered and the solid oak versions are pre-finished with a colourless varnish. The edges feature a hint of black paint which, when installed, gives the effect of the gaps that are typical of historic chevron floors in-situ. It’s a fact that when central heating meant that interiors were dryer than before, the parquet floors shrank slightly leaving thin gaps to open up giving that « black line » look to antique parquet floors.
Being newly-made it permits large quantities of this ODEON oak chevron product to be specified over time, whereas BCA’s higher priced authentic antique oak chevron parquet references 01067 & 49073 are prepared « ready-to-lay » in our workshops from limited reclaimed stocks. The refs 01067 & 49073 are often destined for high-end and historic projects.
