Color is important to interior designers, textile manufacturers, and countless other professionals that use color to complete their products.
Pantone released their new color of the year for 2020, 19-4052 Classic Blue. Pantone’s website describes the color as elegant in its simplicity, thought-provoking, and peaceful. With the start of the new decade, it’s only fitting that a calming color is chosen to highlight our need for peacefulness in the future.
On the other hand, Color Marketing Group chooses colors to influence the next two years ahead. They recently had their 2019 International Summit in November 2019 where color design professionals gathered and chose four colors to highlight for 2019-2021. These colors focused on different parts of the world. North America’s color is Mist (a light, greyish-blue), Latin America’s color is Renacer (a beautiful saturated violet), Asia Pacific’s color is Uni-Coral (a bold mix of orange and red), and Europe’s color is Raison d’être (a neutral, mid-range tan with violet undertones). Each color is meant to convey a particular mood relating to that area.
It’s a big year for color, and we’re excited to showcase the fabric designs that fit with these new color trends!
Fabrics to Inspire Your Pantone Classic Blue Looks
Blue is a versatile, stable foundational color that can safely be used in any setting. Classic Blue in particular is meant to convey relaxed and calm feelings, so we’ve gathered fabrics to help you set up those emotions with your next project.
Looks That Capture Color Marketing Group’s Mist, Uni-Coral, Renacer, and Raison d’être Colors
Color Marketing Group chose Mist as North America’s key color for the next couple of years. They describe Mist as being a peaceful, cleansing color that is supposed to invoke feelings of determination, positivity, and light. Our fabric picks for mist are a combination of light blueish greys and soft browns that are sure to help a space convey similar feelings.
Color Marketing Group’s Latin American color is Renancer. Renacer’s goal is to equally balance feminine and masculine representation, as well as connect nature and spirituality. We love this violet-like color because of its bold energy. Use it to add a burst of color to any space or accent a piece of furniture.
The color for the Asia Pacific region is called Uni-coral. Uni-coral is meant to inspire fun, playfulness, and happiness. To keep with this color’s trend, we chose playful reds that are sure to stimulate any space.
Raison d’être, the color chosen for Europe, is meant to drive balance between the natural and artificial worlds. When you look at this color, you can see hints of both in its hues. We chose fabrics that highlight both the natural and synthetic so you can convey that feeling in your next project.
