    Looks like vinyl flooring stuck to foam. Most easy to get is Gerflor from HM or Bunnings Warehouse. About $40m^2. These are self adhesive.

    If you want something more rigid and with variety, get something like Berryloc laminate flooring, these are 7mm thick, light and easy to handle. Click together and break apart easy. Best thing is they come in all types of wood textures and colours. About $26m^2 from most flooring shops. You can get stone textures too but I havent seen any in stock in Australia.

    I just recently brought some vinyl for a benchtop from bunnings, they had a variety or faux-wood styles, not very expensive. I got the adhesive and spatula dealy while I was there.

    Took about an hour to do a .6 x 1.2m ~ area, taking my time to apply the adhesive evenly and work out the bubbles etc. Easy job.

    its thin vinyl glued to thin white polystyrene to keep the weight down for portability, and you cant walk on it especially with shoes, it just dents.

    to me its ugly, and would not use that as a backdrop for any photos.

    hmm that sounds bad.
    I just want something looking different, since I live in a flat and the white backdrop and throws gets old
