Retro laminates from Arborite — Mod atomic “Stella” designs in yellow and blue

I’ve been researching and writing about laminates lately and stumbled upon these two designs — yellow-and-blue and blue-and-yellow pastel “Stella” designs with a mod-atomic sensibility. They are from Arborite Ink collection. 

I reached out to Arborite for some details, and they responded with remarkable speed — nicely done, Kelley!  (Edited briefly) Kelley said:

Hi Pam,

Thank you so much for reaching out! Generally our lead time for our INK Collection is 3-4 weeks depending on availability and stock. A sheet typically costs around $176 for a 4′ x 8′ sheet but can vary with different thicknesses.  

Where to get samples, along with info on where you can buy Arborite laminates:

    Ask the manufacturer – that said, I am pretty darned sure the answer is no: They are not specified for such use. You want a resilient floor; in reality it is also a laminate; it’s just the different function / manufacturing / etc.

  2. Suzanne VanGilder says:

    Of course, there are lots of spectacular laminate flooring products. The differences are the backer, substrate, edges treatment and wear-layer are engineered specifically for the application.

    It is good to see “Bittersweet Orange” making a comeback. Thank you Brady Bunch kitchen! I hope that one day the more common laminate color “Avocado” will be made again. It would be so great for those needing to repair their kitchens where avocado appliances are in place and working just fine.
