"For over 20 years, Pantone’s Color of the Year has influenced product development and purchasing decisions in multiple industries, including fashion, home furnishings, and industrial design, as well as product packaging and graphic design.
The Pantone Color of the Year selection process requires thoughtful consideration and trend analysis. To arrive at the selection each year, Pantone’s color experts at the Pantone Color Institute comb the world looking for new color influences. This can include the entertainment industry and films in production, traveling art collections and new artists, fashion, all areas of design, popular travel destinations, as well as new lifestyles, playstyles, and socio-economic conditions. Influences may also stem from new technologies, materials, textures, and effects that impact color, relevant social media platforms and even upcoming sporting events that capture worldwide attention."
We always get excited when Pantone announces their color of the year. It's wonderfully fun to mentally go through our inventory to figure out which rugs reflect the newest Pantone color of the year. Pantone is never boring and always on the leading edge of design, you can trust them to select something with pizzazz.
With Classic Blue the options are endless. Dash & Albert, a perennial favorite company of ours, offers Classic Blue in a superb variety of styles and constructions. To see them in person just stop by and we'll pull out some samples for you!
