Mighty Oaks: 5 Fantastic Wood Flooring Patterns

Richly textured planks make for canvases under foot

By Eric Mutrie


With its rounded edges, Listone Giordano’s oak parquet Biscuit flooring by Patricia Urquiola resembles the tasty tea-time snacks. Choose from full-length, herringbone and diagonal options. From $24 / sq ft, at Trends & Trades


The expressive patterns on Scheucher’s oak Formentera strips recall billows of smoke. Each two-metre long plank is finished in a stain-resistant oil. $16 / sq ft, at Silverwood Flooring & Interiors


In the office of this Forest Hill home designed by Luc Bouliane, dark cabinetry contrasts with European white-oak planks from Moncer. The floor’s handsome finish is courtesy of natural Scandinavian oil. $13 / sq ft, at Moncer Specialty Flooring


European Flooring’s planed oak Atelier is arranged here in a trendy chevron pattern. Made from sustainably harvested wood, this rustic offering is a great way to add warmth and character to new spaces. $26 / sq ft, at European Flooring


The poppy-red stain on these Bauwerk Parkett Vintage Edition oak planks is artfully worn away to evoke a time-worn Maritime boathouse. Other vivid colours include blue, green and yellow. $15 / sq ft, at Relative Space
