You can't go wrong with a classic, and Pantone's latest Color of the Year is just that. Classic Blue is a familiar shade of blue that is a dramatic departure from the vibrant and energetic Coral from last year.
"We are living in a time that requires trust and faith. It is this kind of constancy and confidence that is expressed by Pantone 19-4052 Classic Blue, a solid and dependable blue hue we can always rely on,” explained Pantone Color Institute's executive director Leatrice Eiseman in the official press release.
While Classic Blue may be the color of your favorite pair of jeans, we didn't include any denim in this year's fabric round-up. Instead, we’ve opted for a fun collection of 30 modern textiles, leathers, and fabrics. From an elegant mohair to a menswear-inspired micro plaid and even the softest vegan leather, this year's color boasts a richness and depth that makes it an easy color to add to any interior project (think casual office cafe to the most chic upscale restaurant).
Get ready to stock your material library with a few (or maybe even all) of these reliable, go-to fabrics. See the list below for links to our favorite graded-in commercial fabrics from, Maharam, Mayer, CF Stinson, and Camira, HBF Textiles, and Knoll Textile in Classic Blue.
Samples of these fabrics and more are available on the respective websites and can easily be shipped directly to your office. Any of these would be perfect on our upholstered barstools and chairs.
