Pantone Matching System
Established in 1963, the Pantone organization has been choosing the shade of the season for years, which always has a huge impact on the interior design industry and beyond. The Chief Executive Officer – Lawrence Herbert – developed a pioneering method of combining and identifying colors – Pantone Matching System. Each tint is represented by numbers. During making such recordings, every aspect is taken into account, from metallicity to fluorescence. By far the biggest advantage of the shades palette created by Pantone is the colors’ uniformity. Each of them was created by juxtaposition and carefully combining 18 pigments (including white and black). As a result, the printout of the shades will always be the same. This corporation, thanks to its hard work, has gained recognition around the world, and their publications are considered the most reliable sources of information about colors.
Viva Magenta – the recent Pantene trend
The announcement of the color choice of the year by Pantone is the most longed-for event in the interior design world. The last edition trend was the blue-violet shade of Very Peri, a symbol of creativity. And what has the Institute bet on this time?

This color beams courage and joy, and its intensiveness is designed to stimulate the fighting spirit and inspire everyone to infinite self-expression. The spontaneousness contained in this shade means, primarily, the return of happiness and joyful moments after the last, quite difficult years.
