New 2017 Formica Specialty Collection Offers Design Pros More Than Meets the Eye

There’s more to Formica® Brand surfacing than meets the eye with Formica Corporation’s new 2017 Specialty Collection. The collection, designed to help professionals create striking interiors, includes two entirely new high performance, low maintenance surfacing products — Formica Infiniti™, the next generation in surfacing, and dECOLeather™, a recycled leather veneer. 

In all, the 2017 Formica® Specialty Collection features a wide array of colors and textures, providing architects, specifiers, designers and other industry professionals with more options than ever before for applications ranging from healthcare to hospitality, to restaurants, retail and beyond.  

“Our new specialty collection is a perfect hybrid of innovation and beauty. It is both visibly and tactically elevated, allowing for new opportunities and advantages in design and making for surfaces you’ll love at first sight and touch,” said Renee Hytry Derrington, Group VP of Design for Fletcher Building’s International Businesses Division, which includes Formica Corporation. 

Formica Infiniti™: Irresistibly touchable super matte surfaces that resist fingerprints and bacteria

Visually striking at first glance, but with state-of-the-art functionality and surprisingly little maintenance required — that is just the beginning with Formica Infiniti™, a game changer in surfacing. As beautiful as it is durable, Formica Infiniti™ features a soft-to-the-touch super matte finish, resists fingerprints and bacterial growth, and has thermal healing capabilities. It is available in all standard Formica® Brand colors. 

Hardworking Formica Infiniti™ surfacing is right at home in cafes, casual diners and quick-service restaurants, hotels and stores, healthcare, commercial offices or any setting that calls for countertops, tables, doors, partitions, cabinets and furniture. 

dECOLeather™ Recycled Leather Veneer by Formica Group: Elegant, affordable, sustainable luxury

An eco-friendly product made from recycled leather, new dECOLeather™ brings sustainable luxury to interiors by reusing and reinventing a precious resource and making it more affordable. With its deep colors and rich textures, dECOLeather™ recycled leather veneer redefines interiors. Available in 18 colors and three richly grained finishes, it channels the distinctive texture of exotic crocodile, the warmth of walrus and the remarkable appearance of wild buffalo. 

dECOLeather™ brings earthly elegance to interiors, whether it’s used to create a trendy hotel reception desk, a chic cocktail bar, a bank of elevators, or an accent wall in an office or healthcare setting. dECOLeather™ creates an appealing aesthetic, providing all the best of leather including the look, feel and smell, with the added benefit of being eco-friendly.
