Collections Boast High Design, Tactile Finishes and Accessible Aesthetics with a Modern Twist
TEMPLE, TX (June 12, 2019) – Wilsonart’s 2019 Commercial Laminate and Traceless™ Laminate Collections include 25 unique designs in a variety of textures. The latest releases harmonize as a collection for any classic or modern interior, while each of them represents a chic personality to span the breadth and depth of design aesthetics desirable in all varieties of commercial interiors today. Each of the new patterns and solids represent surface materials that suit the trends of mindful materials, crafted artisan and neutral noir.
“Technology today has led to an abundance of choices for consumers. Too many choices, however, has often resulted in a loss of individuality and quality,” noted Sally Chavez, Senior Designer at Wilsonart. “Our new collection of High Pressure Laminate designs (HPL) – a highly versatile product which is truly the workhorse of so many commercial interiors – is inspired by uniquely crafted and artisanal items that add character and personality to the spaces we work in.”
Nine new wood looks now feature remarkably enhanced surface textures that emulate the dynamic flow and even the light-play of real woodgrain. The authentic looking surfaces provide the warmth and hospitality associated with wood case goods and surfaces, and a welcome respite from technology, glass and sleek cool, industrial looks. New design additions to the widely popular Aligned Oak series, Mercer Oak and Webb Oak, are suitable for vertical and horizontal applications, opening the door to every surface possibility in commercial interiors.

The new HPL patterns, eight abstracts and six solids, are modern and updated with a stroke of tasteful restraint. Abstract patterns include a new take on the original Classic Linen. French Linen and Nordic Linen radiate a Hygge personality associated with lofty waffle-knit hotel linens. In their warm neutral colorways, French Linen and Nordic Linen exude a sophisticated, yet approachable vibe. New bold, neutral colorways Blackbird and Nightfall elevate the linen pattern to a moody visually intriguing surface.
Wilsonart’s masterfully composed, original abstract pattern, Washi, features depth and movement on
multiple levels. The multi-faceted pattern’s personality reads lighthearted yet intellectual and harmonizes extremely well with both contemporary to classic interiors. The versatile pattern looks great in every color and effortlessly integrates with future updates. This artistic organic abstract will remain relevant and endure new trends, interior concepts or colorways.
The natural, raw Polished Concrete pattern represents radical trends in interior design, such as industrial farmhouse or industrial modern; while soothing designs from nature White Cascade and Sierra Cascade are residential crossovers. All three patterns represent beauty at its best.
