Many 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:
- Yellow Glacier Boomerang
- Red Glacier Boomerang
- Turquoise Glacier Boomerang
- Glacier Boomerang
- Ebony Turquoise Boomerang
- Ebony Red Boomerang
- Ebony Boomerang
- Charcoal Boomerang
