Brace yourself, because Pantone’s Top 10 Fall 2017 Colorsare coming! Every season the team at Pantone Color Institute choose the top 10 colors for fashion and design.
In 1963, Lawrence Herbert, Pantone’s founder, created an innovative system of identifying, matching and communicating colors to solve the problems associated with producing accurate color matches in the graphic arts community. His insight that the spectrum is seen and interpreted differently by each individual led to the innovation of the PANTONE MATCHING SYSTEM®, a book of standardized color in fan format. Since then, Pantone has expanded its color matching system concept to other color-critical industries, including digital technology, textiles, plastics, architecture and contract interiors, and paint. Pantone continues to develop color communication tools for a variety of industries and aggressively adopt new digital technology to address the color needs of design and production professionals.
“Bookended by a dynamic Grenadine red and a tawny Autumn Maple, the color palette for Fall 2017 leans more to warmth, “ says Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute. “While comforting, enveloping colors and ease are crucial to the seasonal feeling, standout shades include a pale pink Ballet Slipper, a refreshing Golden Lime, and a bright Marina blue. These hues add a striking touch when paired with the classic autumnal shades of Navy Peony, Neutral Gray, Butterrum and Tawny Port.”
A powerful, evocative, dynamic red, Grenadine is a confident and self-assured attention-getter. This dining chair by Essential Home is proof of that. Ellen is a fanciful dining chair full of luxurious features. Its distinctive open curved back is extremely sculptured and it contrasts with the slim legs made of polished brass. It is upholstered in velvet and has mixed tones both on the back and the round cushioned pad.

A mainstay for the season for both palettes, Navy Peony is a dependable and an anchoring shade. Solid and stable, the hue takes some of the load off of black as a go-to neutral. This armchair in Navy Peony by Brabbu is absolutely stunning for a golden combination.
