Whether it’s in herringbone or plank form, parquet flooring is one of the world’s oldest and most popular types of flooring. And that’s not without good reason – real wood parquet flooring effortlessly lends a unique natural atmosphere to any room and its diverse applications are in a league of their own. Parquet flooring is available in a range of different species of wood (mainly oak), and a variety of colours (from white lyed oak to antique brown), types (e.g. short planks, planks or strip parquet flooring) and grades (from rustic/authentic to harmonious). The selection of surfaces is equally diverse. Some examples include oiled or ultra matt lacquered surfaces with a sanded or brushed effect. These days, classic and timeless laying patterns such as herringbone are especially on-trend for parquet flooring. Herringbone flooring consists of separate planks which are installed at adjoining right angles. The resulting continuous symmetrical plaits resemble a herring’s skeleton, which is where the name of the pattern originates. French herringbone flooring, for example, is particularly elegant, but it is also highly intricate. Each strip is tapered for this installation pattern, forming a joint in the centre.
Herringbone patterns give your floor a truly elegant aesthetic as the two halves of the herringbone plait shimmer differently in the light. This type of parquet pattern is especially suited to spacious rooms. Traditional, high quality herringbone patterns look particularly impressive on such floors.
PS 500 is the name of the herringbone parquet collection by MEISTER. We reinterpret traditional herringbone flooring, giving it a modern, contemporary feel. Thanks to the generous strip format, the surface appears classic and elegant, yet modern and homely. Bright colours and warm oak surfaces dominate in the herringbone collection, (e.g. Authentic off-white oak (9021), Pure oak harmonious (9013) or Oak harmonious (9000)), topped off by darker tones like Smoked oak harmonious (9018) and American walnut (9009). You can choose from eight different shades of herringbone wood flooring. As is the case with all of MEISTER’s parquet flooring, we don’t offer solid hardwood, but rather high quality three-layer parquet (also known as ready-made parquet).
The strips are finished with ultra matt lacquer and there are three different gradings available: authentic (larger, filled knots and cracks), lively (with cracked knots and cracks) or harmonious (calm look, isolated small cracked knots).
Sustainable. Robust. Practical. That is Lindura wood flooring. Its wood powder technology makes this innovative flooring particularly durable, robust and easy to maintain. Lindura is therefore significantly more indent-resistant than parquet flooring and withstands wear caused by falling objects or heavy furniture. Lindura wood flooring is also available in herringbone format and is thus a great, inexpensive complement to herringbone parquet flooring in the MEISTER range.
Its special product structure means that Lindura surfaces only need an eighth of the wood required for multilayer parquet flooring, making it particularly sustainable and resource-efficient. Besides the popular herringbone, the wood flooring is also available as large-format planks in various lengths and widths.
Because the wide range of products doesn’t exactly make choosing the right floor covering easy, you can view MEISTER flooring online in your own home and check whether the colour, pattern, wood, installation pattern, etc. suit your furnishings.

The patented UniZip click system is used in the PS 500 line. This system makes it possible to install your flooring easily, quickly and safely. The advantage is that you only need one plank type, so A and B planks are no longer needed. This makes laying herringbone less complicated and optimises waste!
This flooring is ideal for a floating installation and full-surface plank bonding. Herringbone flooring is also compatible with water-based underfloor heating.
