Classic Blue Porcelain and Glass Trends


It’s the start of a new decade, and the year ended as it has for the past 20 years, with Pantone Color Institute declaring its Color of The Year. The chosen hue is “Classic Blue,” a cool shade reminiscent of the wide-open twilit sky.

The Pantone Color Institute is a 20-person team that spends months studying recurring patterns or colors and measuring the cultural zeitgeist before selecting a color they think best captures the current moment. Pantone’s Vice President Laurie Pressman explained the 2020 choice of Classic Blue, saying “it’s a color that anticipates what’s going to happen next.” Setting a hopeful tone for the new year, “this enduring blue hue highlights our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era.”

On-trend business and industries will incorporate the year’s shade into their interior design.
