New Leaf Adds Matte Grain Finish

New Leaf Performance Veneers, a Wilsonart company, has added a matte grain finish available on 20 of its veneers. “Our New Leaf matte grain finish was developed to meet the demands of designers and homeowners alike who are seeking a veneer option with an open grain finish that mimics natural wood,” says Kimberly Watson, global vice-president, material replacement for Wilsonart. Ideal for cabinetry, wall panelling, wainscotting, and doors in both commercial and residential settings, the curated collection features an overall matte grain finish with open-pore texturing and provides a familiar depth and tactile experience while remaining true to a traditional veneer visual. This is the third finishing option in New Leaf’s veneered surface catalog, which also includes matte and semi-gloss topcoat finishes.
