Explore three of our favourite collections:
Engineered Wood Flooring
In 2014, Domus launched a carefully crafted collection of engineered oak parquet and plank formats (Domus Wood) in 24 traditional and contemporary tones to meet the evolving requirements of our regular architects, designers and clients. It was an immediate success with both formats specified for the Battersea Power Station development and Foyles London Flagship Bookstore. Since then, we have introduced the Aura, Pergo and Robur collections to our portfolio — adding ash and walnut species.
Reclaimed & Solid Wood Flooring
In 2016, Domus launched ‘Docks’ — a reclaimed oak flooring collection with a beautifully rustic and characterful aesthetic; and ‘Hørning’ — a premium solid wood collection of extra-long planks and unique parquet designs from the highly regarded Danish wood manufacturer.

Engineered Laminate & Vinyl Flooring
In 2017, Engineered Laminate and Vinyl collections were exclusively launched and successfully specified on significant residential developments, schools, private homes, and workplaces. Collections include Pergo Laminate, Pergo Vinyl and the recently introduced LG Hausys Vinyl.
Technical Solutions & Advice

In addition to technical advice relating to slip resistance, setting out, sub-floor preparation and care and maintenance, Domus provides advanced technical systems that resolve many significant building challenges.

For international projects designed and specified in the UK or overseas, Domus has a dedicated team to offer products available in the local market through our global distribution network. Our experience working on some of the largest public, residential, retail and transport projects worldwide means we have refined our methods and worked with our global partners to offer the most innovative and technical products.
Major international projects include Burj Khalifa (Dubai, UAE), Spaceport America (New Mexico, USA), 551 West 21st Street Development (New York, USA), Regent Hotel (Tivat, Montenegro), Msherib Downtown (Doha, Qatar) and Grand Gaube Hotel (Mauritius).
International projects present particular challenges which are individual to each country or region.

Our local partners will be on hand to support specifications knowing local customs and technical regulations in the local language in a timely fashion.

Domus has three award-winning specification showrooms in London — Battersea, West 1 and Clerkenwell.
Each showroom is designed to inspire, inform and ensure the best materials are selected for every project. Showroom specification teams are on hand for walk-in customers and provide design and technical advice. All showrooms have material libraries and samples ready to take away or available for delivery to the office or home.
Domus' Outlet showroom and Head Office are in West Molesey, Surrey, along with the logistics and distribution centre.
Here visitors will find 1000s of square metres of tiles for sale that are reduced to clear due to over-orders or discontinued lines from recently completed projects. All clearance products are high-quality, stylish materials with many colours available in large volumes or job lots. Orders can be collected from the warehouse or delivered to your site.
Here at Domus, we are continually looking at our business procedures to ensure a minimal impact on the environment. Since the start of 2020, Domus’ sample packaging has become fully eco-friendly as we have banished the use of plastic bubble wrap at our warehouse in West Molesey, Surrey.

The Latest Chapter
In December 2017, Domus was acquired by Headlam, Europe's largest distributor of floor coverings which is listed on the London Stock Exchange with sales of almost £700m. With over 2,300 employees, Headlam is headquartered in Coleshill, Birmingham, and comprises 64 businesses in the UK and Continental Europe, each operating under their trade brand and utilising their own sales capability. The businesses are supported by Headlam's centralised operational and financial resources with an extensive network that comprises four national distribution hubs and eighteen regional distribution centres.
The scale and reach of Headlam's operation and the synergetic relationship across the product groups from carpet, wood, laminate and vinyl, with the addition of tiles and other hard surfaces, provides a significant opportunity to accelerate and extend Domus' plans. This combination offers a unique chance to Domus to implement its commercial goals whilst benefitting from Headlam's overall strategic vision, financial strength, and reputation as Europe's largest distributor of floor coverings.
