Parquet for a Millionaire Palace

Sunday, 05 September 2010

parquet millionaire palacesWhen we discuss the parquet for the luxury place of wealthy persons, we can neglect about all the ordinary floor works done by the professionals even from the most quality wood. There’s a lot to say about the parquet that is done manually, one by one, by the most professional specialists, though the interior of palaces of the previous century is beyond the competition regarding the floor. These palaces are of high historical and esthetic value with luxury valuable parquet-work in the amazing mosaic pattern in wood with the silky lacquered covering. The color and texture are on the higher level, either.

When observing the parquet in palaces and buildings of historical places you realize that this is a real work of art not just a floor covering suitable for a millionaire.

So, how does the parquet-work for millionaires differs from that assigned for ordinary people? First of all, it is the wood which is used to form those fascinating parquet plates creating incredible pattern. And no pine, it is absolute no for the parquet for the wealthy! The disadvantages the pine parquet is known is too soft wood subject to rotting that is easily punctured with the high heels of ladies, though these are the secondary features to neglect pine. The major argument is that pine is too common and trivial.

Only precious and fine wood are allowed or the exotic wood since the red wood, Karelian birch, beech and oak have been widely used for many places. And, how about the parquet-work from the wood of balau? The name is unusual and the wood distinguishes with the high stability from others. Parquet from the wood of merbau sounds rather exotic though such parquet was created in Russia since the XVIII century and the wood was actively used when constructing palaces in St. Petersburg as well as sandal wood, lemon tree, tobacco, sateen, olive and argan trees. Juniper and cornel, elm and plane tree, cypress and boxwood, amaranth and mulberry tree, palm and  Brazilian sahardan and many other fine woods were the first used when making parquet-work and since today they are of high demand and appreciation.

Today the parquet-work from the lawren wood is widely practiced especially for those who appreciate the luxury and amazing parquet moon ebony, ardent ebony and black ebony. Prickly ash and excrescence of the Laotian rosewood root are also in the list of favourite parquet wood exclusively for the wealthy people since the price of parquet plates are not affordable for ordinary people. Keruing, royal tree, marble tree, ormozia are also included in this list to be the precious and fine wood among the others. Many fine woods in this world, many kinds of parquet-work are created. And each of them is famous for either high durability to external factors or the fascinating resistance to all kinds of wood diseases like rot or all of them. Such woods are known for the beauty and unique color and shades.

When we talk about the parquet-work for the wealthy people, the coloring of the wood is highly considerable. The standard «wooden» color is too trivial as well as the trite herring-bone pattern. More unique shades are required like intensive red shades of tropic wood, greenish tint of pear, soft gold of apple tree, pink color of the alder tree in the dawn, darkness and durability of the oak tree.

Combination of various woods that famous for various natural colors allows creating the genuine parquet-work for millionaires yet, the wooden carpet is what it means here if everything is considered and done correctly.

So, millionaires of our days can be sure to enjoy the luxury floor work at their places.
