The Institute continuously develops colour communication tools for this a wide variety of industries while also adapting new digital technology to the colour needs of design and production professionals.
“Bookended by a dynamic Grenadine red and a tawny Autumn Maple, the color palette for Fall 2017 leans more to warmth,” says Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute. “While comforting, enveloping colors and ease are crucial to the seasonal feeling, standout shades include a pale pink Ballet Slipper, a refreshing Golden Lime, and a bright Marina blue. These hues add a striking touch when paired with the classic autumnal shades of Navy Peony, Neutral Gray, Butterrum and Tawny Port.”
A powerful, evocative, dynamic red, Grenadine is a confident and self-assured attention-getter. Ellen by Essential Home follows the same style. Its distinctive open curved back is extremely sculptured and it contrasts with the slim legs made of polished brass. It is upholstered in velvet and has mixed tones both on the back and the round cushioned pad.

# TAWNY PORT
Taking the Red family to new depths, Tawny Port is elegant, sophisticated, and tasteful. Jones is an upholstered dining chair that features a curved polished brass base. It has colour and class, due to his velvet and super stylish open back.

# BALLET SLIPPER
If you need lighten up your interior design style, then the Ballet slipper tone is a perfect choice. The minimalistic Armstrong Floor lamp creates a simple statement of good taste and Ballet Slipper is always flattering and reminiscent of the rosy glow of health.

This snug, warming, and toasty shade is evocative of drinking a glass of Butterum by a roaring fire on a cool autumn evening. We really love this Pantone Color and the Russell Armchair, in shades of Butterum is so stylish for a living room. Its crescent armrests lead to an open back, all layered over a comfy foam frame and upholstered in velvet. The base is round, produced in golden brass and can swivel 360 degrees.
# NAVY PEONY
A mainstay for the season for both palettes, Navy Peony is a dependable and an anchoring shade. Solid and stable, the hue takes some of the load off of black as a go-to neutral. The Geisha chair by Koket is absolutely stunning for a golden combination.

# NEUTRAL GREY
The standard bearer of all neutrals, Neutral Grey shares the anchoring role with Navy Peony in this palette. It can be used as an accent or a head-to-toe statement shade. This contemporary living room with neutral grey tones also has golden and black accents that suit perfectly with this specific Pantone Color.
