James Latham is enjoying great success with two of its latest surface materials, especially among architects, interior designers and furniture makers in the residential sector.

New and exclusive to James Latham in the UK, the Allure range of innovative surface solutions offers seven different types of truly unique, real stone laminate.  Allure includes an extensive palette of high-gloss bold and vibrant acrylic colours as well as a high-gloss wood grain.  There’s also a stylish mirror laminate and a choice of rough-cut and brushed oak, smoked and stained veneers.


Plus, there’s a range of eco-friendly reconstituted veneers in patterns such as Rosewood and Ebony, with its unmistakable very dark heartwood and characteristic streaks, giving the veneer a distinctive and striking appearance.HIF Finesse offers architects and interior desingers an option they have not had before


Another surface material being offered exclusively in the UK by James Latham is HIF Finesse, a revolution in conventional timber veneer panelling which gives dimension, depth and texture to an otherwise flat surface. With a mixture of contemporary designs and patterns – inspired by the flowing, dynamic shapes of the natural elements – HIF Finesse offers a range of eleven embossed MDF panels, each supplied with its own unique textured finish.



Faces range from Italian Alpi engineered-veneer in colours including Ebony, Walnut and Light Oak, through to Oak and Walnut real wood-veneers.  Plus, there is a paintable foil finish available.


Manufactured in Germany, the panels are produced by applying 100,000 tonnes of pressure per square metre in a specialist press, forming the unique appearance of HIF-Finesse which would have an otherwise flat surface.  In addition, HIF-Finesse is also available in curved panels, with a matching range of edgings.


HIF Finesse is available from James Latham in profiles and thicknesses from 1050 x 2450 x 18/21mm, 635 x 2450 x 21mm, 1270 x 3135 x 21mm, depending on the pattern and panels are held in stock at James Latham’s nine UK-wide panel sites.


Chris Sutton, managing director of James Latham commented, “We have a history and expertise in bringing new and innovative products to the UK market and both the Allure and HIF Finesse ranges have already made a big impact within the A&D sector.  James Latham now offers one of the UK’s widest ranges of innovative surface solutions, all available from one supplier, and directly from stock at all nine of our nationwide panel distribution sites. “
