We explore five key looks and how this design can add pattern perfection to your interior design.

1. Mixed Material


Combining herringbone trends with a thirst for mix and match materials has resulted in this fabulous floor from our new Urbanista Collection. Moroso features realistic natural timber planks which sit beside silvery-grey concrete in a combination of mismatched chevrons. This floor is perfect for homeowners looking for a contemporary floor with a nod to herringbone heritage – think grand hallways, up-cycled and retro-inspired interiors and chic home office spaces.

2. Going Grey

Grey has been a colour that has inspired many homeowners within traditional and contemporary settings. There are a plethora of accounts on social media that celebrate interiors based on this soothing palette, so it's no surprise that grey floors have become hugely popular in recent years. Marilyn from our Titanium XT collection is an excellent choice for light grey tones, but if you're looking for a darker grey, then Patagonia from our Urbanista is a superb option.

3. Not exclusive to wood-effect floors

What better floor to partner with cool, crisp white bathroom suites? Herringbone is not exclusive to wood and can be equally captivating when recreated in stone effects, such as this Bilbao floor from our Urbanista collection. Not only does it add timeless and spa-effect feels to bathroom spaces, but it is also a practical solution that will cope with the odd spill and mishap.

4. The Comfort Zone

Everyone is looking for a touch of comfort within their home, and what better way to add a welcoming space than using a herringbone floor. Patagonia has proved a popular choice for homeowners looking for a versatile option that pairs easily with accessories and rich, soft furnishings.

5. Illusionist

It seems ironic that traditional herringbone is helping tackle the modern problem of small rooms. After all, this pattern is probably associated with some of yesteryear's grand and iconic homes. Herringbone can help draw the eye and create the illusion of space, making it a popular choice in new homes, studies and smaller kitchen areas. Pair this floor with light neutrals and maximise natural light sources for that ultimate airy appeal.
