Using Pantone’s Living Coral

December 27, 2018

For 20 years, Pantone’s Color of the Year has influenced product development and purchasing decisions across many industries, including interior design. The color trend authority announced Living Coral, an animating coral hue with a golden undertone, as this year’s color. This tone represents consumers’ desire for more authentic and immersive experiences, as well as the need for more natural and joyful experiences.

Many manufacturers embraced this color in a variety of products, giving designers the opportunity to include this warm tone in their upcoming projects.

  1. The Kaboom Rug from Illulian depicts an explosion of Living Coral. This pattern recalls a highly-charged, impulsive style of abstract painting during which paint is energetically splashed, spilt or dribbled onto a canvas.
  2. Now available in salmon, Big Chill’s Slim Fridge is designed for smaller spaces, features the trademark vintage appeal and includes a stamped metal body and a pivoting chrome handle. Other features include a full-width door, an ice maker and automatic defrost. www.bigchill.com
