  • Neapolitan Stone
    Neapolitan Stone joins Formica Brand’s innovative 180fx® collection which features true-to-scale stone patterns that offer visual drama unmatched by any other laminate. Neapolitan Stone is a modern, sophisticated high-resolution pattern – versatile enough to pair with any interior design concept, making it highly desirable. Neapolitan Stone is a durable, postforming laminate that is wear and impact resistant and eliminates the demand for resealing that is common with stone surfaces....
     

  • Inspired by Fusion, a premium multicolored stone, Neapolitan Stone is a highlight of the 2019 Living Impressions™ Collection by Formica Corporation. Neapolitan Stone features the highest color variation of any granite and is comprised of whites, beiges, blues and warm grays to emulate the flow of sand on a Mediterranean beach. To create a truly unique look, Neapolitan Stone features a new SatinTouch™ finish that is smooth-to-the touch with a silky feel and sheen.

    By recreating the look of the premium-priced Fusion in a high pressure laminate, Formica Corporation has made the beautiful look of a rare and expensive stone attainable for customers at all price points. Laminates such as the new Neapolitan Stone are more budget-friendly, require less routine maintenance such as sealing, and are often easier to clean than their stone inspirations.
