Pantone’s Color of the Year: Classic Blue

By Bedrosians Tile & Stone | 12/10/2019

For 22 years, Pantone’s Color of the Year has influenced design across multiple industries, including fashion, home, and industrial design, as well as products like tile! According to Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, Pantone's 2020 Color of the Year, Classic Blue is "a timeless and enduring blue hue elegant in its simplicity. Suggestive of the sky at dusk, the reassuring qualities of the thought-provoking Classic Blue highlight our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era.”

Pantone Color of The Year 2020 - Classic Blue

“We are living in a time that requires trust and faith,” said Eiseman. “It is this constancy and confidence that is expressed by PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue, a solid and dependable blue hue we can always rely on. Imbued with a deep resonance, provides an anchoring foundation. A boundless blue evocative of the vast and infinite evening sky, Classic Blue encourages us to look beyond the obvious to expand our thinking; challenging us to think more deeply, increase our perspective and open the flow of communication.”
