Parquetry was originally used to refer to the design of wood-block floors. The blocks were laid in a pattern to contrast the grain of each piece. This method has been used on furniture veneers to make patterns of contrasting grain. Parquetry generally uses the same wood laid to make geometric designs and differs from Marquetry which creates more pictorial designs.

Parquetry is a mosaic of wood used for ornamental flooring. (French parqueterie, from parquet.) The large diagonal squares known as parquet de Versailles were introduced there in 1684, as parquet de menuiserie ("woodwork parquet"), to replace the marble flooring that required constant washing, which tended to rot the joists beneath the floors.
