Parquet Flooring Design - Russborough House, Ireland

The Russborough House has been completed in 1750. The parquet flooring installed in the saloon is a remarkable piece of old work. Made of Mahogany and Satinwood. The room has a 33 x 26 ft. (10x 8 metres) size. We don't have a date for the parquet flooring, unfortunately. For example as the official site - www.russboroughhouse.ie - mentions the Genovese velvet in the same room is dated 1870.
