Pantone will showcase its 2016 Color of the Year at The Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market this January, where seven interior designers—Robert Leleux, Shaun Smith, Jamie Durie, Michael Habachy, Tami Ramsay, Janie Hirsch and Heather Hogan Roberts—will create vignettes inspired by the Pantone color forecast. In addition, vignettes for the lobbies of AmericasMart Buildings 1, 2 and 3 will be created by designers Michel Boyd and Kristin Alber of REstyleSOURCE.
“We are thrilled to partner with AmericasMart Atlanta for the Pantone Design Exhibition this January. As the leading market for designers, retailers and buyers alike, we know Atlanta is a natural fit for showcasing the Pantone Color of the Year 2016 and PANTONEVIEW home + interiors 2016 color forecast,” says Laurie Pressman, vice president of the company’s Color Institute. “AmericasMart’s signature vignette design exhibition presents an unrivaled and unique opportunity to see firsthand how the color trends will be reflected throughout the home and gift industries in the year ahead.”
Pantone will reveal its Color of the Year next Thursday, December 3, and celebrate it with a launch party on January 15 during the market.
