Seems like I’m starting the week off with the spotlight on RESOURCES! I was checking out Formica’s site recently – and saw these two new laminates. They both have a nice retro groove, underscored by their names, Atomic Orange and Atomic Turf. Back in the postwar era, there were a number of laminates that had a scratchy-burlap feel. These two remind me of those.
Update, July 2010: Janice used the green Atomic Turf in her kitchen — I love it! Check out complete information about here retro-inspired kitchen here.
Update: Sept. 2010: Erik writes to let us know that Atomic Turf has been discontinued. Drats. If this is what you want, you still might try contacting Formica to see if anyone has any stashed away.
