HOME The Pantone Color Institute is recognized the world over as the authority on color. The Pantone ® name is considered the gold standard for communicating all things relating to color from designers to manufacturers, retailers, and customers. Every year, Pantone helps influence and guide products in the fields of graphic arts, fashion, home interior, plastics, architectural, paint, industrial design and consumer markets. This year, Pantone selected a color dubbed “Greenery” as the Pantone 2017 Color of the Year. Selected for its fresh energy and a promise of new beginnings, Greenery imparts a cheerful and whimsical effect. This bright leafy hue can evoke the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew. Fresh off the heels of Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year announcement, home interior companies have embraced the newly favored tone by releasing a variety of products that feature it's vibrant energy. Upholstery and occasional furniture manufacturer Taylor King recently unveiled their array of sofas and accent seating in Greenery. The zesty green color is shown in different fabrics and leathers for an eclectic look. 54 EASTERN HOME & TRAVEL
