Violet Vibes – Pantone Colour of the Year

Dec 13, 2017 | News | 0 comments

The Pantone Colour of the Year is always eagerly awaited by those interested in design, colour and interiors and just recently, the brand announced that Ultra Violet, a blue-based purple, is the colour to watch in 2018.

Pantone say that the colour represents artistic brilliance and is often associated with mindfulness – perhaps perfect attributes in an office, an educational or even a healthcare environment. If you’d like to use this 2018 trend colour in your design, these are the floor covering brands who are already on trend and can help you to bring splashes of Ultra Violet hues to your scheme:

Modulyss Carpet Tiles

Have a look at modulyss Fashion& colour 482 or for a 100% recycled yarn option, look at Millennium Nxtgen in 482. For a play on pattern and texture, Motion//Vision in 410 will give you violet tones, softened with pale grey. For a luxurious cut pile finish, consider Cambridge in 41F.  Mix and match the purples with rich greys or blues for a colour palette that will stand the test of time. Modulyss perfectly incorporates the Pantone Colour of the Year into their collection. 

Try using modulyss designer which will help you to create stunning floor plans using any of the modulyss collections and will let you see how your punch of purple works with your design.
