Pantone 2018 Color of the year: Ultra Violet

“The Pantone Color of the Year has come to mean so much more than ‘what’s trending’ in the world of design; it’s truly a reflection of what’s needed in our world today.” – Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute.

The Pantone colour of the year 2018 is a bold shade of purple that goes well with any colour. Ultra violet, code 18-3838: a bold, deep, intense colour, Pantone 2018 is an invitation to be daring.

“We are living in a time that requires inventiveness and imagination,” says Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. “Ultra Violet suggests the mysteries of the cosmos and the discoveries beyond where we are now. Enigmatic purples have also long been symbolic of counterculture, unconventionality, and artistic brilliance.”

Pantone has identified the colour of the year every December since 2000, a source of inspiration for fashion, beauty and design over the coming 12 months. It is selected by the Pantone Color Institute, a group of experts in the vocabulary of colour who offer consulting services for brands and manufacturers throughout the year. They make their choice following a thorough analysis of culture, technology, food, fashion, and even international politics, so that the Pantone colour of the year becomes a visual expression of public sentiment, going beyond the confines of a restricted circle of colour professionals.

Our Exabright and Kraklè collections include two hues touching on the 2018 Pantone colour, for effects that go well with different colour combinations or boldly interpret spaces.



Sometimes all it takes is a simple item of furniture or accessory to give a space a new look.
