There are four herringbone designs within the LVT Essential Collection, perfect for a vast range of creative briefs which includes Quartet, Ballerina, Twist and Bostonian Oak Beige. All the designs are available in Herringbone Dryback formats and selected references are also available in Herringbone Rigid Acoustic formats,
