Vintage 1950s 1960s Panelyte and Formica Laminate Sample Chips

By Sara In AZ

I recently bought these old retro laminate chips from my friend Redwin, owner of Sweet Lorain The Vintage Department Store in Cleveland Ohio (if you need vintage anything and are in Cleveland this is THE place to go y’all!), and I just HAD to scan them in and share them with everyone!

I think these old wood grain laminate chips are really cool!


I am loving that Black Pickled Limed Oak.


Those Stippletone chips are FAB!


Eeeeeeeeeee!!!! Pink Irish Linen….sign me up!


I totally love those “Myth” designs on the bottom!


Whoa……is there ANY WAY we could still get the ‘Harvest’ pattern?! Swoon!


If only we could still get amazing laminate like this today! A girl can dream……………………………….

    Bring it back now!!! Can’t express enough how heartbreaking it is that you can’t get ahold of this stuff anymore:( I have a mersman end table covered in the flat cut walnut that inspired me to design and build a atomic style head and footboard. Have been looking around for a while now, to no success. But I really do enjoy looking at these vintage samples though and delighted by this website! So all is still cheerful in the Mcm world ✨✨✨✨
