Pantone Offers More Color Options
June 6, 2011,
CARLSTADT, N.J.-Pantone has added 175 new colors to its Pantone Fashion + Home Color System, bringing its total to 2,100 shades.
For a more comprehensive selection, all color families were expanded to include a broader range of nuanced neutrals and mid-tones, an increased number of vibrant brights, many complex hues with greater depth and intensity, and more subdued and smoky variations of popular colors
"Designers continually discover new color inspiration and look to Pantone to help them reliably reproduce these colors in their designs," said Laurie Pressman, vice president of fashion, home and interiors at Pantone. "When evaluating how to expand the Pantone Fashion + Home Color System with more color options, it was essential to create a broad range of colors that were both trend-right and technically achievable for all of the markets we serve - from fashion and home furnishings to interior and industrial design."
