Looking for textures for material preview scene

Hi all,

I am trying to render material preview images like this with my own renderer:
Image

And right now I am lack of two things.
The good looking tiled texture on the floor, and some ball mesh like that to apply the material to.

I tried hard looking for textures like that online but failed, do any of you have one to share?
And do you have any tutorial to create a ball-like mesh like in the image above with maya? I am really new to maya.
Ideally I want to also create a mesh whose inner part is diffuse material and outter part is whatever I want to render. wonder how hard it is.

Thanks!

I have a Maya shaderball scene you can use as a starting point here (scroll down to the bottom of the page):

It's set up for Arnold but should be easy to adapt for your purposes

LuxBall is available in Blender format from here: http://www.luxrender.net/forum/viewtopi ... 13&t=10179

The geometry can be easily exported from Blender and the floor texture map is included.
