Haworth new veneer in brown color called Walnut Grove

Walnut Grove
Grade A

Introducing Walnut Grove, a double cut walnut veneer with a rich, natural appearance and enhanced sustainability.  Walnut Grove utilizes shorter veneer cuts, which saves some of the valuable hardwood resource and further enhances the sustainability of the final product. The well-ordered stacking and overlapping of the special veneer cuts leads to the subtle curves in the texture responsible for the natural appearance. You’ll find Walnut Grove to be similar to our existing Hazel veneer, with the key differences being the enriched natural texture and enhanced sustainability.

Premium Textured Laminates

by Surface Materials | Feb 01, 2020
Grade E

Seven new laminate designs from Italy are making their debut in Grade E.  These are premium laminates of unparalleled beauty and realism, unlike anything else on the market today.  Available with matching edgeband on select products.

Wood Tones:  Hay, Drift, Pecan & Molasses:
These four natural wood tone designs span from light to dark.  Wood grain laminates have come a long way, but these are really exceptional.  The print, texture and complex color combinations make these new additions very compelling, and difficult to tell the difference from their  natural wood inspiration.

The graining of a natural leather was used as inspiration for this subtle and simple design.  The mid tone color will work in warm or cool interior settings,  and add a richness and dimension to any application.

The graphic of Hatch is reminiscent of a soft linen textile.  The balanced “etched” design, and appropriate scale, offers great flexibility for large and small furniture pieces.  

To round out the offering, we added the look of a casual, industrial material like cement.   The scale, color and accuracy of the print is really convincing.
