I have been searching the web again, and found some great samples of Formica ….first I found this wonderful article on a blog called “Our Arts and Crafts Home”, her grandfather had passed ( he was almost 101 years of age) and they were cleaning out his home, and her father found these in the basement. Her grandfather like to collect odds and ends and this was probably one of them apparently.
Can you imagine how exciting this would have been???? She took them apart made these photos….
Oh so fifties…….
The brand is so well known today that people generally refer to all laminated countertops and furniture as “Formica” whether or not they were actually the manufacturer. The brochure pictured above shows the Sunrise collection designed by Raymond Loewy Associates for Formica in 1953.
My Countertop would have been Lipstick Red Linen with a Chrome strip…no doubt! Tell me if you have one here you would use…..
Next….on to the Dinettes!
