Wilsonart Virtual Design Library Unveils Nature
TEMPLE, Texas, July 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – As Americans move to a “new normal,” incorporating elements of nature into home decor can help instill calm, comfort and tranquility. For 2021, Wilsonart has expanded its Virtual Design Library (VDL), an online resource for finding carefully selected interior surfaces, with a new selection of high-performance laminate designs called Nature’s Retreat. Embracing nature’s best looks, colors and textures, these new designs bring commercial and residential surfaces back to basics to create calming yet sophisticated environments.
“As we return to work, travel and play, the overall idea for New Beginnings has inspired our VDL 2021 introductions,” said Danielle Mikesell, global vice president of marketing and design at Wilsonart. “Our Nature’s Retreat collection perfectly reflects this theme with fresh, authentic designs that capture the dramatic simplicity of natural materials while providing durability and convenience that make them as livable as they are aesthetic.”
Wilsonart’s Nature’s Retreat collection offers everything from wood grains and understated textiles to large-scale organic patterns in beautiful, nature-inspired tone-on-tone colors. With spectacular looks, plank, rustic and natural, the new selection includes 17 distinctive designs, composed of 15 wood grains and two natural fiber looks, which offer style and sophistication. Each grain of wood lends its own character and interest to a space while conveying relaxed warmth and understated elegance. Natural fiber appearances, available in raffia and cane, complement the wood grains adding visual texture and creating a relaxed look and feel.
“Nature has been a strong, silent friend in all that we have been through. She has the ability to calm, soothe, revive and rejuvenate – even in uncertainty and chaos,” noted Mikesell. Whether these laminates are used on walls, countertops, or just as an accent surface on a table or bookcase, they instantly bring the beauty and benefits of nature to any space. “
While the 2021 VDL collection offers a range of designs that mimic the best of Mother Nature, it does so without impacting the environment. Wilsonart’s VDL collection is GREENGUARD Gold certified to meet low chemical emission limits for improved indoor air quality. In addition, the collection is made from a combination of fibers from FSC-certified, fast-growing, sustainably managed woods and post-consumer recycled content. In fact, Wilsonart is the industry leader in post-consumer recycled content used in the manufacture of its products. Wilsonart uses an average of 23% post-consumer recycled content, twice as much as any other leading brand of laminate.
“Wilsonart’s Virtual Design Library was created with one goal: to provide the design community with more inspiring design choices in the HPL market without compromising the quality, durability or service it expects from the global leader. of the category, ”added Mikesell. “All of our VDL collections are curated by our own designers in collaboration with the design community. This means trendy designs that are instantly relevant in any space.”
With over 600 designs, Wilsonart’s Virtual Design Library offers unprecedented design choices. Nature’s Retreat marks the second collection under the New Beginnings theme, following the Back-To-Basics collection, which debuted in January 2021. True to the durability and easy care for which Wilsonart is known, the designs of VDL also offer cleanability and resistance to scratches and scuffs for lasting beauty and a high quality appearance.
