Modern Home Accessories in PANTONE Colors That Endure + Spark Creativity
We all know the world looks to the PANTONE Color Institute when it’s time to spot color trends for all areas of the design arena, and a most notable favorite, for their Color of the Year announcements. Thinking about color, we perused their website to see what interesting color palettes they’d recently put together. We immediately spotted the Colors We Love, Colors That Endure color palette, which features eight colors that are versatile and fluid, and less about what season or gender they’re for. These colors can be considered new classics but classics that stand out through time and ones we connect with emotionally. Take a look at 8 modern home accessories, inspired by these uplifting colors, that can easily update your favorite space.

>>> CH24 Wishbone Soft Red Chair by Carl Hansen & Son
The iconic Wishbone Chair was designed in 1949 and has been a hit ever since with its signature Y-shaped back which gave the chair its name. Back in April, the Danish brand launched the chair in five new, limited-edition, matte colors as part of the Soft Colors collection to benefit the Be Original Americas’ Student Fellowship Program. We’re particularly fond of this brick red color for those looking for something different than black or white chairs.
>>> Curve Lumbar Pillow in Mustard by Anchal Project
If you’re one of those people that associates patchwork and embroidery design with the older generations, you need to check out Anchal Project. They’ve updated these age-old techniques to create modern textiles, like this hand stitched pillow in soft organic cotton in a golden mustard paired with cream.
