Old Parquet - Yay or nay?

One thing that I love to do in my spare time is apartment hunt online. Is that weird since I have no immediate plans of moving?....Probably.
Hopefully by next summer I will be getting a new rental (with my very own kitchen that I don't have to share with five other girls), and I love seeing what my predicted budget will get me. Most of the apartments I'm drawn to (and can afford) have one thing in common....old, square parquet flooring. If you had shown me this a few years ago, I would have cringed, but now, I don't mind it at all! I actually kind of like it. Think about the craftsmanship and time to install that! There is something kind of charming about it and miles better than the laminate I have in my current rental.

So what do you think? Has parquet flooring come back into style? Or do you still consider it outdated?
