What is the difference between parquet, herringbone and chevron?

Parquet typically refers to any wood flooring pattern using smaller square or rectangular pieces, however ‘parquet’ is more commonly used for referring to the herringbone design. Herringbone has planks arranged in a zig-zag pattern at 90 degrees. Chevron is a pattern that creates an inverted ‘V’ shape, with each piece of wood meeting at a point. The ends of the plank form a continuous line, unlike herringbone.
