The Pantone company is known all over the world for its definition of colour tones. The group also produces a variety of lifestyle items that showcase its knowledge of colour and style.
Every year since 2000, the group has decided on a particular colour that will go on to be the following year’s ‘colour of the year.’
The decision of which colour is often made with an attempt to describe something of the zeitgeist – or feeling of the times. The very fact that Pantone do this each year shows us how highly they rate the importance of colour matching and style!
For the year of 2021, Pantone have opted for Ultimate Grey & Illuminating Yellow. A mesmerising blend of two very different tones, the inspired design is sure to stand out in the home wherever its used.
The description of the choice focused in on the rock-solid earthy grey of strength and resilience over a difficult recent period, with the sunshine of the yellow offering optimism for the future.
The two tones together provide a hopeful look forwards, while also being reliable and consistent.
The colour combination is brought out beautifully in the above Pantone Mug Ultimate Grey & Illuminating. Produced in top quality fine china, the mug will look amazing anywhere in the home. The mug also arrives in a beautifully styled packaging box.
Available in a whole host of colours shades, the Pantone Espresso Cup is a perfect gift for anyone who loves their coffee. Making full use of the iconic smart Pantone design, the cup is made from fine china. Both dishwasher and microwave safe, the cup is just the thing to have in the kitchen ready for a short and delicious espresso.
A special mug celebrating Pride is offered with the Pantone Pride Mug in Gift Box. Highlighting six rows of colourful tones, the bright mug is perfect for looking forward to the next Pride festival and celebrating all year long.
Pantone also lends its name and style to other useful homeware items and accessories. In the above case, it is the Pantone Notebook Large.
