Modern doesn't equate with synthetic. Just take a look at any '30s-'50s Wright or Wright-inspired home. I've seen original butcher block countertops in MCM homes by Wright-trained architects, and they look great. Wright himself used Linoleum -- arguably a "natural" material made from cork dust and linseed oil -- on countertops, sometimes with an exposed wood edge. At the Johnson House (Wingspread), for a bedroom floor he used strips of plywood turned on edge and glued up butcher block style. That might make a pretty cool countertop. Soapstone, unglazed tiles or concrete make good natural counters too. There's nothing wrong with Formica, but I'd stay away from polished granite or quartz -- too flashy and trendy for most MCM homes.
