Junckers celebrates Danish design and craftsmanship

Last week we showed off our Hexparket flooring alongside a whole host of Danish design brands at London Design Fair. The Danish Country Pavilion was initiated by the Embassy of Denmark in London, who curated a real-life Danish Living Room full of furniture, lighting, homeware and sound, with our Hexparket floor forming the backdrop.

A celebration of Denmark’s strong tradition of design and craftsmanship, the large stand brought together well-known iconic brands and promising new talent. Thousands of visitors from the global design community came along to discover the room and learn more about the individual companies represented. Styled by the talented women who run Arttiles, Trine Galschiøt and Anette Nørmark, the overall design presented as a cohesive look with elements from many different sources, just like in a real home.

Throughout the room, the emphasis was placed on exquisitely crafted pieces, using quality materials. Made in solid wood, the hexagonal design of the Hexparket floor showcases Junckers’ own long-standing tradition for quality and craftsmanship with a contemporary take on the classic parquet floor. The geometric shapes of the large hexagonal staves combined with the structural grain patterns of the timber contrast beautifully.

Introducing Twin Herringbone – a new parquet floor

Traditionally found in castles and stately homes, solid wood floors laid in geometric patterns evoke a sense of a timeless elegance and style. In the last decade, parquet floors have seen a sharp rise in popularity and today a herringbone (or chevron, basket weave or ladder pattern) floor is almost de rigueur, the floor of choice for hotels, bars, restaurants, retail and office spaces as well as private homes.

Herringbone, which is the most popular parquet floor, is made up of rectangular wood blocks, or staves, arranged in a pattern resembling fish bones. Junckers’ new Twin Herringbone wooden floor is an updated version of this much-loved classic. With Junckers’ trademark commitment to quality and craftsmanship, Twin Herringbone is a solid hardwood floor – as durable and long-lasting as a traditional parquet floor.

Made from Junckers’ classic two-stave flooring, each board consists of two rows of staves; one full-length and one with two half-length staves. This gives Twin Herringbone an authentic pattern and elegant look but at a very good price point. Delivered with a hardwearing factory-finished surface ready to walk on as soon as it is installed, Twin Herringbone has the advantage of saving on costly and time-consuming installation work as the floor does not have to be sanded, filled and treated after being fitted. A pre-finished floor is far superior in terms of durability with optimal wear resistance and a uniform appearance. It also has a significantly shorter installation time compared to an unfinished floor, with minimal inconvenience.

Available in solid Ash, Beech, Oak and Black Oak in a choice of matt or silkmatt lacquer or oil, as well as a large selection of colours. Each stave measures 129mm wide x 516.6mm long x 14 or 22mm thick. Ideal for use in all rooms of the house except bathrooms and can be used with all major underfloor heating systems. Twin Herringbone feels warm and solid underfoot, free from gaps or crevices.

Bespoke Parquet Floor Created to Replicate Original Gallery Flooring

Our solid oak Herringbone parquet flooring has been installed at the National Gallery of Ireland as part of extensive refurbishment works. Architects Henegan Peng’s brief to provide a more accessible route through the collections has resulted in an elegant and historically sensitive upgrade for the Gallery.

The solid wood parquet floor in the Dargan and Milltown Wings was installed by DJ Kelly & Co Ltd. The new floor in the Milltown Wing replaced an original timber floor and in the Dargan Wing, Junckers created a bespoke wood block to replicate the pattern of the original tiled floor.

Herringbone parquet floors, historically found in country estates, castles and mansion houses, have become one of our most popular floors. The elegant aesthetic of the geometric pattern coupled with the naturally occurring structural grain pattern found in solid oak has made parquet the flooring of choice for anything from public buildings, bars and restaurants, galleries and offices to private homes. Our solid oak floors are very durable and can be sanded and refinished several times. Simply put – they last a lifetime.

A New Parquet Floor From Junckers

Hexparket by CarpEnter CPH & Hartmann is a new parquet floor from Junckers. Hexagonal staves made in solid oak are laid to form an intricate design mimicking nature’s own geometric pattern based on equilateral triangles. Made in 100% solid hardwood oak, the staves measure 370mm on all sides by 20.5mm thick. The staves have a groove on each side and an accompanying loose tongue is used in the installation process.

Hexparket is delivered with an untreated surface to be finished on site with either a lacquer or oil. Made in Junckers’ most popular timber grade, Harmony, the floor has a natural appearance, few knots and some colour and structural graining variation between the individual tiles. Oak is a hardwood species characterised by being hardwearing and is therefore very suitable for flooring. The wood has a warm and golden glow, an interesting grain structure and over time the natural ageing gives the wood an authentic appearance. The graphic look and clean, sharp lines of the new Hexparket is perfectly counter balanced by natural beauty and texture of the timber, resulting in a lively, elegant floor.

A Contemporary Parquet Floor

Over 6500m2 of our Oak Boulevard has been installed in the impressive Aeroville shopping centre near Charles de Gaulle airport outside Paris, France. The €350 million project is a mixed-use retail and entertainment hub with over 200 stores, five cinemas and multiple restaurants.

With an expected footfall over up to 12 million people a year, a hard-wearing, extremely durable floor was a non-negotiable requirement. Our Oak Boulevard, a premium, solid hardwood floor with a stave width of 185mm, was laid in alternating patterns originally inspired by an African design, as an over-sized parquet floor. We think you’ll agree the effect is just stunning. Glued down on concrete, sanded and finished on site with a UV resistant lacquer, the floor adds warmth and elegance to the expansive atrium-style walkways at the same time as offering the required durability.

Junckers Sustainable Solid Wood Floors Specified For New Gallery

Hugh Broughton Architects have specified our solid hardwood flooring for the new Harley Gallery on the Welbeck Estate in Nottinghamshire. The new 890m2 gallery, set within the grounds of the existing Harley Gallery, will show changing displays of the privately owned Portland Collection.

The design reflects the historic architecture of the Estate in choice of materials, colour and scale, as well as introducing a sense of light and space. Our Single Stave Blocks parquet flooring was installed to add natural warmth and beauty, to compliment the dramatic space. Durable and easy to maintain, all Junckers’ FSC and PEFC certified solid wood floors are the ideal choice for public buildings.

Having a moment…

Junckers Single Stave Blocks Oak Harmony Herringbone - close up low res

Maybe it’s because we’re obsessed with beautiful floors but we think parquet floors are having a bit of a moment. Recent posts on some of our favourite blogs showing super chic and stylish interior spaces with traditional parquet floors used in a contemporary way have inspired us to share some of our own.

Our Oak Harmony laid in a herringbone pattern in a classically grand apartment in central Copenhagen; rustic Oak Variation and Oak finished in our opaque Black Oil all look stunning.

Our Single Stave Blocks are laid in the traditional fashion and then, contrary to most of our floors which are pre-finished, sanded and finished on site. A floor like this can last a hundred years (or more!). Not only is solid hardwood very hard wearing, it can be sanded and re-finished as many times as you like.
