Papyrus chair from Kartell (Available in a range of colors-At PerLora)

The 2012 Pantone color of the year has been announced...

Tangerine Tango! (17-1463)
It's an energizing and sophisticated reddish orange hue. The infusion of red emits a sensation of drama and heat, while the yellow subdues the tone with subtle approachability and warmth. This combination creates a well balanced and vibrant orange color, easily incorporated in a wide variety of interior applications from accents pillows to whole sectionals. Tangerine Tango is sure to create an exotic and exciting atmosphere in any room!

Tangerine Tango is part of a collection of stunning and playful colors that make up this year's color trend. Paired with warm neutrals like Starfish and Driftwood, the color of the year is sure to evoke thoughts of an island paradise and take you away from the ordinary. Or for those more daring, try pairing with the refreshing Cockatoo or Solar Power for a real jolt of sunshine in your home.
Pantone's color forecasts help predict the hottest colors of the season, from fashion, interiors, cosmetics, automotive, and more. Orange hues have been quickly gaining in popularity and acceptance among designers and consumers alike for the past several years, possibly due to its attention grabbing shades or great usability as a gender neutral color. Tangerine Tango follows last year's color, Honeysuckle, which was preceded by the 2010 color of Turquoise. In-depth research into color trends and theory help colorists choose the color of the year by looking at previous trends, the socio-economic climate, and looks to convey uplifting attitudes and emotions to society such as encouragement, which is the aim of Tangerine Tango.

The bold colors mix together to create these satiny and vivacious accent pillows. Even better, they're 100% machine washable and come in a plethora of colors to fit with any decor. Matching area rug available. Stop in to see and feel for yourself.
