Congratulations to Patricia, winner of the Formica 100th anniversary Eames table! I spun the random.org random number generator, and Patricia’s number came up. Thanks to everyone for playing!
Alert: Formica’s 100th anniversary book Formica Forever (affiliate link) is out and now shipping on Amazon. Formica sent Pam a copy of the book to review. She is actually reading it — not just looking at the pictures . So far so good, she says, it is chock full of great info and visuals — a very satisfying 240 pages, a big yummy book.
Created in concert with Herman Miller, which still manufactures this design, Formica’s special edition tables have been topped with designs from their 100th anniversary laminate collection. Our table has the Red Ellipse. Small in scale — just 10″ high — the table was designed by Charles and Ray Eames and introduced in 1950. See cool photos of this diminutive table in use at the Eames’ house, here.
These special edition Formica tables were not created for sale to the general public. They were special VIP giveaways — and Formica sent us one, because they know we are laminate lovers who take care to give laminate, laminate designs and laminate history the respect and admiration they deserve. So, hurray to a very special giveaway — it could be yours! We’ll run this contest through the Labor Day weekend — continue for instructions on how to enter to win. See you Tuesday.
