Formica Extends DecoMetal Laminate Line

Aligning with warmer metals trending in commercial design, Formica Corporation released several new additions to the company’s popular DecoMetal® Metal Laminate collection. Thirteen new metal visuals add warm tones of brass, copper, light gold and black, providing designers with a full-spectrum toolbox of 37 metal laminate designs for architectural interiors.

The new designs include:

Printed Solid Metal
New to the DecoMetal® laminate offering, solid metal aluminum sheets are artistically printed with stunning visuals enhanced by a metal sheen base.

  • Rolled Steel series: As a lighter and more consistent alternative to real steel, cold rolled steel offers an elegant industrial finish. This series combines the rolled steel visual of linear, oiled color-play with the lightweight, easy installation of the DecoMetal® metal laminate line.
    • Light Rolled Steel: An aluminum base with hints of iridescence
    • Dark Rolled Steel: A black oiled effect on darkened steel
  • Patina series: This series embraces the beautiful, natural effects of weathering and age that occur when metals are exposed to the elements. It offers a warm, dappled surface effect that is ideal for any environment, from modern to traditional.
    • Black Patina: A blackened tone-on-tone look
    • Brass Patina: An elegant gold patina
    • Copper Patina: A varicolored burnished copper patina

Metal Laminate
Expanding the popular metal laminates available, Formica Corporation adds warmer copper, brass and gold tones to balance the collection’s existing cool-toned aluminum visuals.

  • Polished series: As reflective surfaces continue to trend, Formica Corporation expands its polished offerings to include warmer tones.
    • Polished Smoke: A black, reflective surface
    • Polished Copper: A shiny copper finish
    • Polished Gold Aluminum: A mid-tone gold polish
  • Brushed series: Expanding on the popular brushed finish, this series modernizes the company’s brushed options by adding warm copper and brass tones.
    • Brushed Coin: A shiny penny-toned copper metal
    • Brushed Brass: Deep brass, a classic rising again in popularity
  • Stainless series: Enhancing the company’s existing stainless options with warm champagne and copper.
    • Champagne Stainless: A highly usable tone that bridges gold and silver
    • Copper Stainless: A fresh, rosy copper metal
  • Copper Veil: A hand-brushed and elegant finish on solid copper foil. In response to demand for warmer tones, Copper Veil joins existing Graphite Veil.

These new DecoMetal® laminate patterns are for vertical use, lightweight and easy to install and maintain.
