Tropical laminate from Wilsonart — “Lush Jungle”

Everywhere I turn these days, I see tropical decor and colors. Sure, it’s summer, but I think the trend is more deeply rooted: It’s very 2017, and hooray for us, very retro, too. Wilsonart also spotted the trend, and has jumped on board with their “Lush Jungle” laminate. It’s part of their print-to-order Virtual Design Library, which makes it easier to offer lower-volume laminate designs to selective market niches. (The Retro Renovation® by Wilsonart laminates are also in the Virtual Design Library.)

And as you can see, laminates aren’t just for countertops — you can use them vertically. I’ve been noodling how to fit some into my Mahalo Lounge, but I already have acres of tropical floral going on in my pinch pleats. Still. Hmmmm.

Hey: Big green Monstera Deliciosa leaves on a field of nubbly linen-like cross-hatching: Yum!

    LOVE IT!

    You can get Wilsonart and Formica countertops fabricated for you at The Home Depot. The cost is about $25 per square foot, installed, plus plumbing fees. These are the prices at a Jacksonville, FL store. Still about $10 per square foot less than low grade granite – and AWESOME!

    Do you think a sheet of laminate could work on the wall behind the toilet? I never thought about it before and it sounds like a wonderful idea! Daisy!!

    Hi Jackie, best to ask Wilsonart about this. I would think so “yes”, but again: Ask them.

    Richloom Balmoral in Opal outdoor fabric at 8.95/yd. Just made outdoor cushions for a new screened porch. My sis and I are in love with this print. The earthtones in the same print will go on the front porch furniture next. Love everything I’ve purchased from Fabric Guru.
