If you too wanted to stand out with your furniture and give your living space a personal flair, Forbo has developed the ideal product for your needs. Forbo Desktop Linoleum collection represents a special form of furniture linoleum, through which it is possible to create a wide variety of design aesthetic eye-catchers. The slightly elastic material can be used on various supports. Regardless of the shape, Forbo's furniture linoleum is suitable for use in curvatures and post-forming. The furniture linoleum will bring a unique, distinctive look to your home and workplace!
Renovating a residential or commercial space doesn't always have to mean replacing existing furniture. Not only can you design new pieces with Forbo furniture linoleum, but you can also add new designs to your old tables, cabinets or kitchen fronts, potentially saving you hundreds or thousands.
Instead of a jute backing, the linoleum for furniture has a light paper backing that allows the material to adapt to organic shapes. In this way, multiple surfaces can be complemented with various touches.
While tables, in particular, are transformed into amazing linoleum furniture with table linoleum, the product can be used in combination with many other furnishings. The accompanying seating area can be put in a completely new light by narrow strips of the linoleum. Even an old desk, boring kitchen units, doors or light switches can benefit from its use. Just use the desktop linoleum from Forbo for this purpose! The collection Forbo Bulletin Board is also a great choice in this case, as it can be used as a pinboard or as a functional surface for walls, and as an inlay for furniture, doors, and cabinet surfaces
In addition to the use in the home, furniture linoleum is also suitable for commercial areas. Monotonous office spaces can be modernised into an aesthetic design area. In addition, cafés and restaurants can also have a significant recognition value with furniture linoleum. The use of a unified colour scheme blends a jumbled interior into a cohesive image, making the space feel welcoming and thoughtful.
Every interior design style is as individual as the person who implements it. Forbo knows this too, which is why the brand manufacturer is particularly concerned about the design of its Forbo Desktop Linoleum collection. The colour schemes range from loud, bold colours to more muted tones.
The sophisticated colour spectrum includes around 21 different shades to offer an ideal counterpart to diverse tastes. All of them have a silk-matte finish that leaves a sophisticated and high-quality finish even on less expensive furniture pieces. The classic natural tones of the collection ground the respective piece of furniture and create a dignified overall appearance. The bright colours can breathe new life into simple items. Forbo Desktop Linoleum “4186 Orange Blast “and “4181 Midnight Blue“ are particularly suitable for creating spatial highlights and highlighting selected furniture pieces.
When creating its colour palette, Forbo made sure that all shades could be combined equally well. While the natural, pastel and solid shades are each within a colour family and therefore harmonise particularly well, mixing the different groupings can also complement one another.
The composition of different wood types and selected linoleum sheets create an exciting picture that gives your room clear lines. For example, the Forbo Desktop Linoleum in "olive" can be ideally combined with medium brown wood tones. The soft dark green creates an interesting contrast to the heavily grained wood of oak or walnut, giving it a moment of calm and balance.
Apart from its outstanding visual properties, Forbo's furniture linoleum has an equally exclusive technical nature. It feels particularly warm and soft when in direct contact with the skin, which makes it ideal for lining seating. The product also boasts of its special light-fastness, which means it offers a consistent colour appearance even in strong light and does not threaten to fade over time.
The traditional features of a classic linoleum are complemented by the low overall thickness of the material. Just 2.0 mm thick, it can be applied to a wide variety of surfaces without leaving a disturbing edge. Thus, while the linoleum for furniture has the durability of the busy floor covering, it benefits from a gentle elasticity. A special finish on the factory side also protects against scratches and abrasion damage, giving you a high-quality surface appearance for the long term.
Environmental sustainability is as important a factor for Forbo as the ideal visual and technical features of its products. So that you can embellish your interiors carefree with furniture linoleum, Forbo always pays attention to saving its emissions during production. In addition, linoleum is made exclusively from renewable raw materials, such as linseed oil, resin and wood, or stone lime flour. The brand manufacturer achieves the pronounced colour intensity through the use of natural colour pigments.
To benefit not only your furniture but also your family, the use of the Forbo Desktop Linoleum collection helps to improve the overall indoor environment. Instead of creating vapours that are hazardous to your health, Forbo focuses on creating living spaces that are healthy for your home, where you can feel completely at ease. In this way, the low-emission material can also be applied in highly sensitive areas. Create the perfect ambience in children's rooms and bedrooms without putting your health at risk!
While wood or glass surfaces take a particularly long time to clean, Forbo's furniture linoleum can be freed from dirt and stains in no time at all. Compared to many other coating materials, it also has the advantage that even handprints from children’s busy hands hardly leave any marks. A damp cloth with a touch of neutral cleaner is already enough to keep the practical material in mint condition.
Linoleum by nature has outstanding antistatic properties. These not only help to reduce the formation of dust but also protect the environment at the same time since the material does not require chemical after-treatment.
Installing linoleum for furniture can be done quickly and easily with little manual skill. As the material is slightly elastic, even organic shapes can be easily covered with the trend-setting product from Forbo. Just like other coating bases, furniture linoleum can be processed both manually and mechanically. On commercially available substrates such as MDF, chipboard or plywood, a dimensionally stable bond can be achieved by glueing with a suitable adhesive.
The furniture linoleum is simply glued to the surface. A hand roller can help generate a positive, air-free surface. Once the adhesive has dried sufficiently, the material can be cut, routed or sawed to the desired shape. To protect the delicate edges, it is recommended to apply an additional edge protector made of multiplex or metal. In this way, you will retain the beautiful shape of your newly made piece of furniture for a long time.
Before you start applying it is advisable to initiate some points of preparation. If you order your furniture linoleum on a roll, it must be stored in a dry and upright place, if possible. In addition, you can also get a cut piece of linoleum in our BRICOFLOR online store. Simply tell us the planned dimensions and save yourself the time-consuming cutting to size. You should then store your linoleum sheet horizontally, lying flat as far as possible. Also, give the product sufficient time to acclimatise at room temperature. This will make further processing of your furniture linoleum much easier and more efficient.
