Announcing Finsa Home’s Charity Golf Day 2014

cartel_golf_1.indd

With the golfing summer in full swing thanks to the success of The Open Championship at Royal Liverpool, Finsa are looking to keep the ball rolling with a golf day of our very own.

Our charity golf tournament will take place on Monday the 22nd of September at Wirral Ladies Golf Course, Prenton in aid of Wirral based charity, the Catholic Children’s Society.

The society works with families in the Shrewsbury Diocese providing a wide range of family support, counselling and parenting advice for disadvantaged families.

The golf day is a great way to raise money for a superb cause, while also being an enjoyable day for golfers of all abilities.

You can show your support in a number of ways.

Either enter a four-ball for a fee of just £160 per team, or if you prefer, you can enter individually for just £40 each and be entered into a group chosen at random.

The day consists of 18 holes of golf, as well as prizes, trophies and refreshments. And if you choose not to play don’t worry, you won’t be left feeling green with envy. You can still turn up for the afternoon buffet!

You can take a look at our promotional leaflet here.

To register or for any further information please contact Trish Spencer at the Catholic Children’s Society on 0151 652 1281 or by email at info@cathchildsoc.org.uk.

Finsa Features at Surface Design Show in London and Santiago Workshop

Mix Trend wallThe Finsa Global Colour Research team have presented their colour trend themes for Spring/Summer 2015 at the Mix Magazine Surface Design Show in London.

Held at the Business Design Centre in Islington, the event is now in its eleventh edition and has really established itself as a high-quality forum for architects and interior designers to network, share ideas and discover new materials.

One of the most popular features at the event is always the Mix Trend wall, an exciting and inspirational display of real material samples, colour palettes and images that give insight into future trend concepts.

Glade and Aura were the highlight themes of this year’s show.

Using a collection of samples the designs, stories were brought to life demonstrating a diverse application to surface and material design.

Natural texture was a key driver in “Glade”, with arid effects translated into calming pattern and colour ways using carpeting. The soft flooring perfectly complemented solid colour laminates we offer at Finsa.

The second story brought to life was “Aura,” which saw iridescent effects blend with ethereal light tones dominating hard surfaces, while a more urban element inspired moodier dark colours in carpeting.

This mixture of light and dark was given a real identity through the samples sourced, inspiring visitors to approach colour and material in a much more dynamic way.

Caqui for the “Glade” theme and Nube Pink, Nube Blue, Nube Green, and Eolo for the “Aura” theme were Finsa’s contributions to the Mix Trend wall from their Trendbook Spring-Summer 2014 collection.

The Trendbook is the latest collection of laminates designs by the Finsa Group, inspiring the latest additions to the Finsahome range of Kitchens and Laminate Flooring.

The event in London was just one of many appearances by Finsa at shows around Europe in 2014.

Over 60 architects and designers attended the III Finsa Workshop ‘Destination: Trends’ at the iconic City of Culture in Santiago, Spain.

This award winning architectural setting was the perfect stage to showcase the latest Finsa trends in interior decoration, including; Industrial & Raw, Hidden Luxury, Greing Being and Vintage Attitude.

The white canvas of this magnificent museum environment at the City of Culture inspired a journey trough architecture, interior decorating, building materials, finishes and textures that all attendants to the event much celebrated through the four proposals in the Finsa Trendbook of decorative surfaces.
