50s formica





I'm a big fan of formica and have various tables and surfaces covered in 50s patterns. I managed to find some old formica samples that I'm going to make into jewellery.

The third from the top is just super cool!

That is sooooo amazing, I love the idea!

My best friend, when I was a kid had a bathroom kitted out with the mosaic looking on in grey. The height of sophistication.

Some lovely designs there. I especially love the triangulated design at the bottom.

The design 2nd from the bottom looks almost ethnic African. Any idea what you may be doing with these?

I've been trying to find the name of the triangulated design in your final picture. If this is from one of your sample swatches, maybe the name, code, etcetera are on the back?
