Eight Unique Styles Inspired by the Diverse Landscapes and Cultures of New Zealand

Design inspiration comes from many places – from nature, history, an art movement, an idea. So when we sat down with Toni Branso and Liv Patience of Material Creative to create the Laminex Design Styles, we invited them to draw from all quarters.

The result is a series of design palettes that show the depth and breadth of Aotearoa New Zealand. From the rugged West Coast to the softness of the east. From soft and subtle to bold and glamorous. The result is a series to inspire all tastes.

The Laminex New Zealand Design Styles were created by Material Creative and visualised in kitchen form in conjunction with Danni-Lee Designs.

By putting a complete palette together – benchtop, cabinetry, wall linings and accents – the whole kitchen or bathroom character can be imagined. Samples, photos and renders help homeowners understand the end result, giving more confidence in their design decisions. With selections made, joiners and builders can be booked in, and accessory choices can follow.
