Nevamar Venus laminate — delightful atomic laminate pattern

One of Krysten’s samples that helped relaunch Venus!

Oh so pretty: The Nevamar Venus laminate pattern — in four colors, including turquoise, lemon yellow, beige, and white. The atomic pattern in this vintage is delightful, and the colors are retro-lovely.

2019 Update: Nevamar saw this story… contacted me… and reintroduced the Venus pattern (and more) from Kyrsten’s chain! Wow! See my story on the new line here.

Thanks to Kyrsten, who found a whole chain of vintage Nevamar at a thrift shop. She’s actually selling the chain to me for the *museum*. Meanwhile, she also sent photos, which I’ll feature bit by bit. Above: Dreamy Turquoise Venus.

Above: White Venus.

Looks like Kyrsten has a vintage glitter laminate countertop already, lucky her! White Venus fits right in!

Above: Lemon Venus. Looks like the starbursties are three shades of yellow/gold — nice!

Above:  Beige Venus. Very nice. 

Readers: Alas, you can’t buy this any more. It’s a vintage design no longer made.

But there are quite a few patterned laminate options out there. To see them, dive into:

Thanks, Krysten!

    We have a similar pattern with a black background on the soffit above our bar. I got really excited for a moment because I thought this was still available!

    Barbara, you are one lucky duck! But never wash that counter with bleach or scrub with abrasive cleansers! As long as it has the clear laminated coat on top, it will be fine. I actually wondered when we moved in whether or not I could revive my sparkly counters by painting with several coats of polyurethane. Too late now. But if anyone has tried that, let me know.

    Love how the stars on the laminate are a little blobby. Kinda like hip little sea critters, each relaxed into it’s own mid cent grin.

    Still looking for a place to buy this laminate, Nevamar white venus,
    Need a sheet for the bar I am building for a client. Will probably be several more once this one is complete. Need a supplier for these products.
    Thank you
