country-house style / villa-style


Explanation:
Strikes me that this is a term made up by the manufacturer so needs a compound with '-style'

I\'d like to replace this answer with
\"Country Parquet\"

COUNTRY PARQUET A simple pattern of square blocks created from same species beams. Planks are cut same length & width creating a uniform look -- see http://www.dr-woods.com/floor_patterns.html

But with the caveat that I am not certain this is what the German manufacturer means.

I\'d like to see a picture or diagram before committing.
