Pantone Colour of the Year for 2018?


International colour authority Pantone, have announced their, much-anticipated, colour of the year for 2018: Ultra Violet. Described as “A blue-based purple that takes our awareness and potential to a higher level. From exploring new technologies and the greater galaxy, to artistic expression and spiritual reflection, intuitive Ultra Violet lights the way to what is yet to come.”

As we have seen with the ‘Greenery’ trend in 2017, the Pantone colour of the year has significant influence over the interior design world, with fabric providing endless creative ways to incorporate the hue.

Capture the trend for your contract interior scheme, with purple shades from our extensive range of flame retardant fabrics, be it blackout, dimout, velvet drapery or vinyl upholstery. The ‘galaxy’ look is created perfectly here in our Blueberry Reflection blackout fabric with its subtle shimmer.
