timeless design

Inspired by natural elements and neutral colors, designer and HGTV star Leanne Ford hand selected the designs in the Formica® Brand Capsule Collection. This collection includes 4 new laminate patterns plus 10 of Leanne’s personal favorites from Formica Corporation’s entire portfolio.
