PANTONE's Color of the Year 2018
Vibrant | Rich | Luxurious
What better way to start the New Year than with a glimpse at all you can discover –in ultra violet and every other color of the rainbow – here at DesignSourceCT.What is it about the purple family of colors? There is a mystical quality that emanates from this complex hue. According to the PANTONE Color Institute, there is something about the “combination of the excitement of red and the tranquility of blue” that makes it “in essence the marriage of two diametrically opposed emotions.” Earlier in the year, PANTONE created a special tribute color, Love Symbol #2, to Prince whose use of purple in songs, outfits and even his custom-made Yamaha piano left behind an indelible mark on music, art, fashion and culture. According to Kravet, one of the extensive collections on display at DesignSourceCT, PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet is a “dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade” that “communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us towards the non-conformity spurring individuals to imagine their unique mark on the world, and push boundaries through creative outlets.” The Kravet Curated collection includes several fine pieces that would add a touch of this lively color to your roomscape. Whether you want to add a punch of this dynamic color to an existing space or you are looking to build a whole room design around it, there are lots of options to work with.
