Formica’s Surface Trends for 2021

20 October 2020


Formica’s Specialty Collection includes bold metallics including polished copper and polished gold aluminum.



For over a century, Formica has provided designers with a trove of laminate choices for every type of commercial setting, from healthcare and hospitality spaces to office, retail and educational interiors. Its Specialty Collection for 2021 introduces even more aesthetic possibilities with an extended palette of beloved wood-grain classics along with on-trend metallics, to give every interior the look of both warmth and strength.



Beautiful as they are versatile, laminates can be used to build wall panels, furniture and fixtures.



The Solid Surface line is also expanding. Newly rebranded as the Everform Solid Surfacing Collection, eight acrylic choices, including terrazzo-inspired effects, have been added to the existing 30 patterns, all well-suited for high-use areas such as countertops and shower walls. As a hygienic, nonporous material, it is an ideal choice for creating great style in highly functional environments.


Formica is well-suited for combining textures with solids, as seen in this optical retail environment.


Wood effects never go out of style and Formica’s already robust collection introduces 16 new offerings that embrace neutral colours in Scandinavian-inspired lighter tones. These warmer hues join familiar grains in shades of ash, elm, cherry, oak and walnut.



Antique Mango is one of dozens of finishes offering the warmth of natural wood.


Finally, with the popularity of metallics still going strong, DecoMetal laminates have become a natural choice for designers with an eye for contemporary glamour. The collection brings together a range of metal surfaces for vertical application, with a full spectrum of warm, radiant tones, including polished, brushed, stainless and veil.


Metallics in warm tones, such as this stainless copper finish, bring a heightened sophistication to any interior.
