New Virtual Design Library Collection Is a Fusion of Colors, Patterns
TEMPLE, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/Cheerful?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#Cheerfullt;/agt;–Throughout 2019, Wilsonart, through its Virtual Design Library (VDL) of
print-on-demand patterns, is bringing the design community quarterly
collections of curated designs that fully embrace the concept of
individualism and personalization. This year’s second Collection, Playful,
is a fusion of colors and patterns that create a unique pop to any
space. The Collection offers a way to customize and personalize home
décor with youthful colors, lively patterns and a feeling of
“The importance of play for children has been well documented,” said
Andrea Flint, Sr. Product Designer at Wilsonart. “But today researchers
are examining the benefits play offers to adults. They are finding that
play is much more than ‘clowning around.’ Play can be a great way to
reduce stress and contribute to our overall well-being. How we play is
as unique as our own fingerprints. It can range from collecting stamps
to forming a book club or training to run a race. As designers, we
challenge ourselves to create environments that encourage balance and
well-being. The Playful Collection is one way we can infuse the notion
of play into our environments and create a décor that makes us smile.”
The Playful Collection includes 12 new and two existing patterns that
embody a fun-loving lifestyle. The Collection contains three two-toned
wood-inspired patterns that offer a pop of color and five wood looks
inspired by plywood, Birdseye Birch and Fumed Maple. Rounding out the
Collection are two abstract designs that include a colorful dot pattern
and a tonal geometric pattern. The new VDL Playful Collection is the
best of clean, bright design combined with unique wood looks.
Playful also features an expansion of Wilsonart’s distinctive Spectrum
series, which pairs subtle, layered designs with vibrant colors.
Like the island the design is named after, Bonaire, a new Crossweave
pattern adds a splash of the Caribbean blue sea. Finally, this
Collection reintroduces two patterns from the current design library
that also embody the essence of Playful: Marmalade,
a citrusy tone on tone Crossweave and Maui
Falls, a linear abstract pattern.
Design Library is a boutique laminate solution that helps set any
space apart. The new Playful Collection not only emphasizes cheerful
colors and patterns along with unique and interesting woodgrains, it
also pairs each design with a fitting texture that elevates the
experience of interiors. From matte and silky smooth to casual rustic,
texture brings enhanced authenticity to each design. See how well the
new designs fit in healthcare, retail, hospitality and office settings
