A seamless wood texture with dark stained timber boards arranged in a herringbone pattern. The image represents a physical area of 1139 x 1018 mm (44.8 x 40.1 inches) in total, with each individual board measuring approximately 400 x 100 mm (15.7 x 3.9 inches). The joints are filled with mortar and are 3 mm (0.1 inches) in width.

Dark stained timber is any timber product which has been treated with a dark staining solution along its surface. Following a process of sanding, conditioning, staining, and sealing, dark stained timber can make an effective, water-resistant choice for cladding, facades, or landscape elements, as well as internal products from flooring to furniture. Dark stained timber has the added benefit of reducing the prevalence of knots along the surface grain, as well as creating a smoother, more even texture.

This texture is an example of a herringbone pattern. Named for its resemblance to the skeleton of the herring fish, this pattern is formed with a series of interlocking rectangles positioned perpendicular to each other. It's use in the built environment dates back to at least Roman times and remains popular in contemporary architecture for a range of applications including tiled surfaces and parquet flooring.

This image is seamless, meaning it can be tiled repeatedly for use in architectural drawings and 3D models. It can be used as a SketchUp texture, Revit material or imported into Photoshop for use in 2D illustrations.
