Every year around this time, Pantone announces the color of the year. This decision is based on extensive research in all related fields such as fashion, beauty, and design. This year the color is Radiant Orchid. I have to say I saw this coming in someway since I noticed at many furniture fairs brands were introducing similar hues to their lines such as Minotti & Baxter.
“While the 2013 color of the year, PANTONE 17-5641 Emerald, served as a symbol of growth, renewal and prosperity, Radiant Orchid reaches across the color wheel to intrigue the eye and spark the imagination,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “An invitation to innovation, Radiant Orchid encourages expanded creativity and originality, which is increasingly valued in today’s society.”
“An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.”
