Mansion weave, as with all parquetry, dates back to 17th Century France. The names comes from “mansions” or palaces and beautiful homes and “waive” as in weave pattern used in textile production.
The design is made up of sections of hexagons and small trapezoids that taper at one end to create a beautiful, uniform pattern which, typically, works best without a border.
Mansion weave is available in oak in all colour and in other species like European and American walnut. Hexagons are generally 180 to 190mm wide and around 250mm long. However bespoke sizes can be manufactured to meet customers’ requirements..
