Living Coral: Pantone’s Colour of the Year for 2019

4th March 2019

Living Coral

We’re loving Pantone’s Colour of the Year. Living Coral (Pantone 16-1546) is described as an ‘animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge’. We’re looking forward to seeing how it appears in our fashion, homewares and tech over the coming months.

“Colour is an equalising lens through which we experience our natural and digital realities and this is particularly true for living coral. With consumers craving human interaction and social connection, the humanising and heartening qualities displayed by the convivial PANTONE Living coral hit a responsive chord.”

– Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute
