The Latest Fashionable New Colours From Formica

Romancing The Stone - The Latest Fashionable New Colours From Formica

Be inspired by the forces of nature with the latest releases from the Formica laminates range now available. Stone is a major theme in the 13 new laminates that feature earthy colours and stormy, stony greys.

The stunning Formica high-pressure laminate range offers more than 200 colours, patterns and textures ideally suited to today's lifestyle. Formica gives a fashionable edge to form and function in design and is suitable for both domestic and commercial interiors.

Lianne Ning, The Laminex Group Category Manager - Decorative Solutions, says the 13 new colours are a representation of overseas trends towards natural looking finishes and textures. "These new colours make you take a second look at Formica as a fashionable option for your design," Ning says.

Seek out the slate-like Lava Stone, the liquid smooth Amaretto Stone or the icy cool of Arctic Stone. Travel the Milky Way for a marble stone effect, or experience the lure of Celadon Stone - with miniature stone chips in shades of green.

Let your kitchen undergo a metamorphis with Frost Quartzite and Smoke Quartzite, both showcasing stone chip effects. Counterpoint features striking black and grey chips against a white background, while Concrete and Brushed Silver are perfect for modern and industrial finishes. Orion shines like a star with fine twinkling detail. And sail the smooth shores of Cocoa Sand, a pale white background with soft grey chips, or try Artisan Sage's palate of earthy brown with line texture.

Formica is manufactured in New Zealand to suit New Zealand tastes, climates and lifestyles. Resistant to heat, stains and scratches. Formica laminates give sleek, elegant lines to benchtops and vertical surfaces.

Aside from colour choices, Formica laminates also offer a variety of surface and pattern designs within the colour palette. These include marble, granite and stone effects, woodgrains and an intriguing handmade paper effect.
