In the wake of our big story on the new Formica 100th anniversary collections, I want to re-feature this archive story on where to find boomerang Formica — but even more so: Where to find 24 colors of boomerang laminate, in all, with the mass coming from two other companies. And — we remind you where best to go for samples.
Peeples, we cover laminate choices EXTENSIVELY on this blog — if you are looking for laminate see our Kitchens / Countertops category — we have many many stories on where to find the “best” retro options. We try to stay on the topic of laminate selections like hawks. Go through our Kitchens / Countertops category if you want red laminate counter tops, carrara marble laminate, still-made 1960s laminate, linen-look, crackle ice, orange laminate, etc. etc. etc.
So, do you want boomerang laminate? See our story from over a year ago on where to find 14 different colors of boomerang laminate from three different companies. But golly, how did we miss that there really are 24 colors! Formica ONLY has charcoal — NO MORE aqua, blue or coral; discontinued; kaput. But two other companies — Wilsonart and Vitro — make many more colors. They are more expensive than the Formica charcoal — which you can get at Home Depot, Lowes or from a big box store. The other 23 designs are all small runs, special order. But they are boomerangs. Do not try to find these laminates on the Wilsonart or Vitro websites — they are difficult to find.
Where to get samples and buy boomerang laminate
The best place to see all the designs and to get samples of all the boomerangs is from Heffrons.com. Heffrons (which is an advertiser here) tells me that they have researched all the pricing in the marketplace and are striving to me #1 in terms of the best pricing.
