SINGAPORE, Dec. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Formica®, the original high pressure laminates company, today announced the opening of a new flagship showroom in Singapore, the company's first in Asia.

The new showroom, located at 504, Sims Avenue, Geylang, close to the Central Business District, gives visitors the chance to expand their knowledge of the latest designs of Formica and its application beyond basic applications. The store features product displays such as cabinets, kitchen fixtures, bedroom and wall panels in a real-life home setting. Customers also have the opportunity to see and feel up-close the textures of different laminates on display.

"The Formica Singapore Showroom is a 'lifestyle' store that gives customers inspiration to design their home using high pressure laminates (HPL) in all areas of interior home furnishing," said Fred Wang, President of Formica Asia. "We believe the Formica Singapore Showroom will work as a bridge to inspire our architects and designers in Asia and has more effective communication with our customers."

Wang said that the showroom was aimed equally at interior designers and architects but also can provide inspiration to the general public as they seek to improve their lifestyles. "This new flagship showroom is ideally located for visitors to explore options, get inspired, meet with Formica representatives, collaborate with interior designers or architects and demonstrate the latest designs in a real-world application."

The focal point of the showroom is the unique lifestyle-driven designs, with mix & matched colors applying in a real-life home setting, establishing an updated, modern yet sophisticated tone as guests enter the space and experience beyond the product display areas.

Formica's intention was to design a space that communicates its quality, innovation and brand spirit. The showroom features a living room that comes with built-in cabinets in warm earth-tone wood grains matching with Formica DecoMetal®, the premium range of Metal Laminates & Solid Metal by Formica Group, hence enlivening the ambience.
