The Wilson House

Here's something for all  the laminate lovers out there! The interiors of The Wilson House feature extensive use of decorative plastic laminates and stands as one of the best residential examples of the mid century modern style in the state of Texas.
This amazing house is a statement of the many founding principals that remain intact even today - innovation, design excellence and a commitment to the continuous development  of interior surfacing products that, literally, become the fabric of our everyday lives.
