In 2010 the exclusive Parador product range included around 2500 items, and another 800 new products were added in 2011.

Production takes place exclusively in Germany and Austria.
The Parador product range of flooring currently includes laminates, parquet and solid wood flooring in the three collections: Classic (timeless, understated elegance), Trendtime (interpretation and further development of the latest international furnishing trends) and Edition, which is synonymous with innovative design. For the Laminate Edition I collection, Parador worked together with 12 top designers from the international design scene, including Zaha Hadid, Karim Rashid, Matteo Thun and Jean Nouvel. The creative innovation capability of the Edition collection is being proven by the fact it has won significant international design awards like the AIT Award (Interior Innovation Award) and the reddot Design Award.
In order to underline the innovative character of the company and to continue positioning itself as a forerunner, Parador now wishes to develop new outstanding flooring concepts together with the jovoto Community.
