Formica Canada Launches Woodgrain Palette


Formica Canada has launched an updated line of laminate woodgrains giving designers a complete, on-trend, and usable woodgrain palette for modern commercial spaces. Based on research, it includes 16 new wood designs that also meet macro commercial design trends in nature and natural materials. “When designing with wood, we’ve learned colour goes hand-in-hand with species and style for many designers,” says Renee Hytry Derrington, managing principal at Formica North American Design. “Designers were seeking more neutral colours and tonal variations of whites, lights, naturals, grays, and true browns.” The 16 new patterns are grouped into seven series: Elm, Ashwood, Cherry, Modern Oak, Modern Walnut, Traditional Walnut, and Casual Woods, creating an offering of woodgrain laminate designs in stain colours from light to dark.
