Laminate furniture consists of synthetic materials used to form a thin layer that looks like wood. Since it’s not actually made from wood, laminate pieces often look manufactured. The laminate gets its wood grain appearance through a printed process. Laminate pieces often have a shiny finish.

Laminate furniture is very durable and protects against chips and scratches. Laminate desks, long tables and other pieces are ideal when sharp tools are frequently used.
