Spotted in a Lustron house for sale: Retro Renovation® by Wilsonart® Rock ‘n Roll Ruby laminate

boomerang countertops A Lustron house for sale — and I spy: a renovated kitchen that includes Retro Renovation® by Wilsonart® Rock ‘n Roll Ruby boomerang laminate countertops. It’s so nice to see this yummy red boomerang countertop in this cute historic house! Thanks to Andrea Kubachko of Urban Durham Realty, who has listed this Lustron house for sale in Durham, N.C.and to photographer Jed Gammon of Jed Gammon Photography for permission to use these photos. And thanks to Virginia, who tipped us to this house via our Facebook page.

Over the Facebook page, reader Kelly suggested this was a rare-ish three-bedroom model. We’ve written a wee bit about Lustron houses over the years:

    It is not in completely original condition, but nicely done and I think it is well worth posting more photos of it. It won’t be online for too long and it is well staged in a retro-modern style.

    Beautiful. Nice to see a Lustron keeping with the original vibe. Locally we have one painted (!) greige and I shudder to think what’s happened to the kitchen and bath.

    There was a post on retro-renovation 2-3 years ago that featured a photo of various retro countertop laminates. It was with an article about someone who had come across a whole set of brand new (still in their boxes) metal cabinets. I have a Lustron and I need to know if there’s a way to order a specific countertop style I saw in the “retro-renovation” photo for my pass-through cabinet countertop in my Kitchen.
