Illuminate your space with Pantone’s 2019 Colour of the Year using these 10 lights

Pantone Colour of the Year (2019) - Living Coral

The Pantone 2019 Colour of the Year is Living Coral, an animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge.

For two decades, Pantone‘s Colour of the Year has influenced product development and purchasing decisions in several industries – including industrial design, fashion, and even home furnishings.

The Colour of the Year selection process is a thoughtful one that considers a wide variety of factors. To arrive at a selection every year, Pantone’s experts comb the world looking for new colour influences – coming from sources such as the entertainment industry, trendy lifestyles, new materials, technological developments, and socio-economic conditions.

This year, Pantone’s selection is “16-1546 Living Coral” – a soft pink-orange blend that embodies connection, intimacy, optimism, lighthearted activity, and our desire for playful expression. “Colour is an equalizing lens through which we experience our natural and digital realities, and this is particularly true for Living Coral,” explains Executive Director of the Pantone Colour Institute, Leatrice Eiseman. “With consumers craving human interaction and social connection, the humanizing and heartening qualities displayed by the convivial Pantone Living Coral hit a responsive chord.”
