Pantone Colours Of The Year - 2021

Pantone Colours Of The Year - 2021

, by James Ward, 4 min reading time

2021 came with a surprise when it brought us not one, but two Pantone colour’s of the year! Two independent colours, Ultimate Grey and Illuminating Yellow come together to highlight how different elements can work together to convey union and support.

PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Grey + PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating Yellow 

“The union of an enduring Ultimate Grey with the vibrant Yellow Illuminating expresses a message of positivity supported by fortitude. Practical and rock solid but at the same time warming and optimistic, this is a colour combination that gives us resilience and hope. We need to feel encouraged and uplifted; this is essential to the human spirit.” A message from Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of The Pantone Colour Institute.

We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. It is evident that we all have endured and overcome many obstacles over the last year and although we don’t know what this year will hold, we hope that it can be a positive and promising one filled with assurance, strength, hope and love!


Your home can also embody strong, bold and bright qualities that you can carry through the year with you. Below are a collection of our furniture pieces that feed into the trend and mimic the colour’s of this year.
