luxurious surfaces

While natural stone surfaces bring a high level of luxury into the home, they are also expensive, high maintenance and unkind to the environment. For today’s savvy, eco-conscientious homeowners, Formica 180fx™ laminates are a superb alternative, emulating the look of natural stone with all the practical and durable advantages of a laminate. For an authentic aesthetic, Formica utilises an innovative printing technology that captures every nuance of natural stone – including exotic variants – in true scale and minus a pattern repetition. Silver Shalestone does this with a low-gloss sheen in a palette of warm and cool greys, while Fantasy Marble brings luxury to surfaces via a flowing pattern in pewter, sand, blue-grey and earthy browns. The unique brushed-and-polished finish provides a lightly dimpled surface with a tactile appeal. FORMICA (ASIA) LIMITED ROOM 1305-9, 13/F…
