This year, Pantone has chosen not one but two Colors of the Year: neutral Ultimate Gray and chrome Illuminating. A duo that could hardly be more different. But together, the two shades form a symbiosis that radiates hope and strength, and is both enduring and uplifting at the same time. Following ERA Table Bases both in chrome and anthracite gray match perfectly together and yet can also be used independently.
“Anthracite Gray” has many facets. and can be combined with almost any shade in Restaurants , Offices and Homes – it’s the perfect on-trend colour. Pantone describes it as being emblematic of dependable elements. A firm and everlasting foundation that encourages a feeling of steadiness. While the warm grey radiates calm and confidence, the bright chrome shade, Illuminating, is bursting with energy, lively and exciting. A bright splash of colour that motivates us, gives us courage and makes us optimistic about the future.
The union of an enduring Anthracite Gray with the vibrant chrome Illuminating expresses a message of positivity supported by fortitude. " Practical and rock solid but at the same time warming and optimistic, this is a colour combination that gives us resilience and hope. We need to feel encouraged and uplifted; this is essential to the human spirit. " explains Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute.
A harmonious interplay of light and drak shades
In addition to Pantone, ERA has also chosen these two colours of the year. And a clear trend is emerging – the new year is all about hope, cosiness and tranquillity. " We have already been applying chrome , black and Anthracite Gray for Restaurant Table Bases , Office Table Legs , Sofa Legs and some other different Legs for long years , it shows our accurate prediction for the color selection " says Serhan Kuruşa , Export & Project Director of the ERA.
Closeness to nature and sustainability are playing an increasingly important. And we’re also turning our focus back to nature with 2021’s colour trends. Soft shades of gray as well as warm orange , convey a friendly, relaxed atmosphere brimming with a sense of ease. These colours are joined by delicate pastels that bring to mind bouquets of spring flowers. We have started to use different finishes in order to color up the environment after these long dark days and started to use orange and similar color for Table Legs . We do believe that Restaurant owners agree with us for this colorful change.
The on-trend colours for 2021 are perfect for these extraordinary times. Warm tones that transform homes , offices , restaurants into cosy retreats where we can forget current world events for a short while. Bold splashes of colour give us hope and confidence, helping us to look into the future with optimism.
