Pantone Classic Blue 19-4052

Pantone announces it’s pick for color of the year and it is, drum roll, Classic Blue 19-4052. I’m excited about this years pick. I’ve always liked blue. It’s probably my favorite color. I even use blue predominantly on my websites. Combine it with white and you have a fresh new look.  Classic blue is a color that can go with a lot of things, especially when it comes to interior furniture upholstery design. I definitely see classic blue for Sunbrella cushions on a deck or porch. Combine it with other colors within a patterned upholstery fabric to give any living room or family room a vibrant look. 

For the marine upholstery industry, classic blue will be a huge hit. Actually it always has been. Classic blue is a common Sunbrella color for boat tops and rigging covers. Boat cushions look great in classic blue. 

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention one important issue with classic blue. Cotton fabric in blue is one of the fastest fading colors. If you end up using classic blue with a cotton fabric, be sure not to have it in a room with a lot of windows. Use it with Sunbrella or other indoor-outdoor fabrics and you will not have the same issues as with cotton.
