I recently attended the Tent London exhibition, where I saw many interesting things, but the one that grabbed my attention was the painted parquet floor - as I understand it the exhibit was a trend space, exploring the use of colours across materials.

Interesting use of parquet and thought provoking. I prefer the natural wood but this idea could solve some design problems that people have in their houses... it also shows how parquet is trending for modern as well as traditional design. And how some people are using it as a walling material too!
