Want the aged industrial look for your walls? These six laminates will do the trick!

Posted by Lamitak on Nov 11, 2017 9:00:00 AM

Surfaces that have withstood some passing of time often develop a patina that is wonderfully organic and unique. Wouldn’t it be great if you could package that personality and bring it home – to provide instant style gratification instead of waiting decades for the material to evolve? Using their keen eye for detail and with some fearless experimentation, Lamitak has succeeded in approximating the character of aged concrete, metal, and stone for their laminates. We showcase six standout examples.

Gritty bare unpainted walls look great juxtaposed with polished, sophisticated furniture, but short of actually living in an industrial space, the perfect alternative is to use the Rico Mogollon laminate above, which intriguing texture and tone is taken from a combination of concrete and plaster surfaces.

Imagine a dark cave which has never been lit by direct sunlight. The Rito Marmo Flavio above conjures up that coolness, with a pattern which bears the faint scratchy lines and colour variation inherent in natural stone. What makes this laminate surface come alive is the sheen which dances on the surface only when the light hits it.

The panels that at first glance resemble wood, are actually clad in Alma Patina laminate. This design’s warm rusty tones are patterned to replicate the uneven mottling of metal left under sun and rain, giving way to rust, something it manages to achieve admirably without obvious repetition.

Another distinguished member of the Patina family of laminates, Copper Patina imagines the effect the elements has on warm shiny copper. The result is a beautiful medley of greys and blues, touched with a smidgen of deep forest green.

One of the most popular laminates in the catalogue, Ando Concrete is riding the wave of popularity for the industrial look. Its unbelievably realistic rendition of a concrete surface has real depth of field, getting not only the colour but also the eventual uneven look of the material due to moisture and temperature, exactly right.

For those who prefer more evenly oxidised metal surfaces (something you can never expect from nature), look to the Tobias Steel family of laminates. Bryson Tobias Steel has the warmest tone of the three laminates, and its more controlled texture makes it a great option for small spaces such as bathrooms.
