Parquet flooring

Time and again I see people ripping out beautiful parquet flooring on design shows. Designers and homeowners alike despise it, saying it’s “too eighties.” The basket weave style is by far the most hated. I don’t get their aversion to what I consider to be a classic look. I say, bring back parquet flooring, and if it’s already there, leave it!
