Adding to Formica Corporation's wide range of surfacing options for architects and designers to create eye-catching interiors, this launch includes new colors and patterns in the DecoMetal® Laminate line.

Labyrinth, a new DecoMetal® Laminate from Formica Group, provides designers the opportunity to play with geometric patterns to create a truly custom look. The Labyrinth pattern also brings added design options as a large-scale geometric available in two new colors: Matte Bronze and Matte Rose Gold.

DecoMetal® Laminate delivers glamourous color and sheen with textures reflecting energy and hand craftsmanship. Joining the existing popular line are six new designs, including three new colors: Matte Bronze, Matte Graphite and Matte Rose Gold, and two new patterns, Oxibronze and Labyrinth.
