We had so much fun last year making our Pantone “color picks” for Fall 2015 that we jumped at the chance to repeat the project for Fall 2016.
The Pantone Color Institute, acknowledged as the world’s authority on color, has been inspiring design professionals with ‘products, services, and leading technology for colorful exploration’ for over 50 years’. Recently Pantone issued its Fall 2016 Color Report – and here’s what they have to say about this Fall’s color picks: “The desire for tranquility, strength, and optimism has inspired a Fall 2016 color palette – along with anchoring earth tones, exuberant pops of vibrant colors also appear throughout the collections. Transcending gender, these unexpectedly vivacious colors in our Fall 2016 palette act as playful but structured departures from your more typical fall shades.”
Join us as La Lune Collection’s beautiful rustic furniture takes a trip down the color runway in Pantone’s top five Fall 2016 color picks!
1. Pantone “Potter’s Clay”
“POTTER’S CLAY has an added degree of sophistication and layering. With elements of russet orange in its undertones, it gives a grounded feeling that’s anything but flat.”
The striking “diamond back” design on this Club Chair is truly a stand-out design element, which makes it a perfect centerpiece OR accent piece in your design plans – notable for both its comfort and beauty.
2. Pantone “Sharkskin”
“There’s an edge to SHARKSKIN, and yet it manages to remain neutral, pair-able with almost any fall color, bright or muted. It’s a color that the rest of the palette can literally and theoretically rest on.”
With its strong, sturdy, and classic lines, this Chaise is equally at home in traditional, rustic, and eclectic settings – and it’s a genuinely comfortable lounging spot!
3. Pantone “Spicy Mustard”
“SPICY MUSTARD is an exotic addition, bouncing elegantly off other colors in the palette. A spicier, zestier yellow than in previous seasons, it adds a splash of uplifting vibrancy.”
This Settee features a lovely Chippendale-inspired design, along with a neat, tight upholstered seat. It’s a classic design perfectly suited to grace many different room types and decorating styles.
4. Pantone “Aurora Red”
“In contrast to the stable backbone of the Fall 2016 palette, AURORA RED adds a welcome punch. A bold Red that is warm, sensual and immediately pleasing to the eye, it gets the metaphorical blood of the palette pumping.”
Dining is a gracious experience, thanks to the sturdy, beautiful character of this Barstool – its removable back pad makes it an irresistible combination of style, strength, and comfort.
5. Pantone “Warm Taupe”
“WARM TAUPE is a hearty, pleasing and approachable neutral that pairs well with each of the top shades of the Fall 2016 season; it suggests reassurance and stability.”
There is plenty of room on this expansive Settee; its classic styling makes it a most versatile decorating piece, an appealing combination of rustic sturdiness and elegance.
