Boomerang countertop laminate — GLOSSY finish — eight colorways

glossy boomerang laminateMany readers say they greatly prefer retro design countertop laminates with a glossy top coat — just like in the olden days. But these can be very hard to find. Yesterday, I profiled the high-gloss Cracked Ice / mother of pearl design laminates now available within Wilsonart’s wonderful Virtual Design Library. Today: A story on the six boomerang designs — also in that high-gloss finish — also available for easy sampling from Wilsonart.

These designs have long been available including from places like Heffron’s. I call them the “Vitra” laminates, because they were used on Vitra products. Wilsonart made these laminates then, and now.

Now, though, getting samples is easier than ever. Just sign up with Wilsonart and pronto, they’ll send you 8″x10″ samples. Wilsonart hinted they also may be listed for purchase direct from Home Depot some time soon.

There are eight different colorways, so many that I missed two when I ordered my samples. Here are the direct links to each colorway:

    I’m looking at “Betty” for my 1953 kitchen remodel too. I’m trying to figure out what cabinets to put in. I have no idea what the kitchen originally had. What type of cabinets do you have?

    Hi Desert Dwelling…our kitchen cabinets are original built in place all wood. Nothing fancy as the shelves are not adjustable, but solid as ever. Plain fronts with rounded edges. We’re keeping them ‘cuz they don’t make them like this anymore!????

    More of a question rather than comment. I am at the very beginning of my research on possibly using a retro-style laminate in my mobile home. I’m reading about sheet sizes, ordering sheets, etc. Is this something the home-owner needs to fabricate themselves or do these companies actually fabricate countertops? As you can see, I am a bit confused by the process. Thanks for your help/reply.
