Laumière is a standard configuration station with two platforms separated by metro tracks under an elliptical roof. The decoration is Andreu-Motte style green, with two light bars, flat tile benches and Motte seating in the same colour. In contrast, the archways and outlets of the corridors as well as the walls and the vault, are covered with white bevelled ceramic tiles. The advertising frames are a faience honey color and the name of the station is also faience in the style of the original Compagnie du chemin de fer métropolitain de Paris (CMP). The name of the station is inscribed in faience in the style of the original CMP and the advertising frames are in faience brown and with simple patterns, topped with the letter "M". These same executives are present only in seven other stations of the Paris metro and in particular the two following stations of Line 5, Jaurès and Stalingrad. With the latter two, they are the only two stations married in the Andreu-Motte style and these particular advertising frames.
