Herringbone is a timeless classic interpreted through fashion, interiors and art year after year. Different textures and materials are used to create a striking finish using this contemporary design. Here’s our How To Guide with tips, advice and inspiration on recreating this look at home with Amtico’s Signature Collection.

Our flagship collection of 188 products gives you the ability to truly personalise your flooring, with luxury appeal and durability in mind.

The design-led collection not only offers an extensive range of stone, wood and abstract finishes, but also an additional choice of ‘laying patterns’. Inspired by a diverse mix of trends and styles, Amtico Signature products are manufactured at our factory site in Coventry.  These patterns are created by our in-house design team to help you achieve a unique look.


All Amtico flooring can be cut into the laying pattern of your choice, meaning you can add an extra element of creativity to your flooring. With Signature, there are no additional charges for laying patterns. We can cut patterns across the collection’s wood, stone and abstract ranges to produce something really special, whatever the room and whatever the style.

Using a classic format to create contemporary flooring for your home

A classic laying format, Herringbone is often seen in wood floors. From school halls to French palaces, this timeless pattern of alternating rectangles arranged in zigzags has a long history of creating elegant spaces.

In the home, Herringbone works well in hallways, however, with its distinctive diagonals, this format can also give a real sense of style to living and dining rooms.


With Amtico Signature any product can be cut into Herringbone, not just the woods. You can contrast this traditional laying pattern with our abstract finishes to create a striking look, or even combine several of the collection’s products in a contemporary Herringbone Pleat for a truly unique floor.

Choosing a creative laying pattern is simple. Why not visit our room visualiser to craft your floor design. Select from our range of wood, stone and abstract designs to create flooring in an infinite number of striking patterns – including the elegant Herringbone design.
