Beneath the Surface

Modern life gets faster and our yearning to connect with nature grows. We look for colours, textures and shapes that celebrate the energising spirit of the natural world. Beneath the Surface finds them in our planet’s vast oceans, and the places where land meets sea.

The team at Laminex is constantly surveying interior design from around the world, to ensure that we deliver the contemporary surface materials architects and designers need. Once a year, this knowledge is brought together in the Laminex Trends Forecast, to give the Australian design industry up-to-the-minute insight into emerging movements in colour and texture.

Trends Forecast 2020

Calm

The dreamy colours here give us a place to pause and recharge. They have a faded quality. They’re ethereal, muted, creamy, chalky. Warm and cool tones mix in surprising ways. All find a natural harmony.

In the Shallows

Rich, graduated greens and deep, textural browns place us directly in nature, keeping us grounded. They’re organic and raw. Confronting to some, relaxing to others. An expression of respect for the environment.

Deep Below

Taking a deeper dive, we find our true selves. Strength and resilience are expressed in rich blues and greens, deep greys and blacks. There’s shadow, reflection and, despite the darkness, safety and comfort.

Positivity springs forth with fresh, clean tones. Nuanced bright colours, tinted neutrals, chalky pastels and the pearlescent finishes of exquisite seashells mix in eclectic combinations. Playful yet elegant, and bursting with hope.
