Pantone Colors of Spring

Whether it be reupholstering your furniture, or replacing tired throw pillows on the big comfy couch, the Springtime itch to upgrade, revamp and redecorate is strong. Pantone has provided the perfect color guide for Spring 2016 to execute a fabulous and refreshing makeover to your furniture or throw pillows.

Psychology and color go hand in hand. The Pantone 2016 Spring collection was compiled to bring a sense of vibrancy, yet these colors also evoke calm; allowing us to unwind while still being stimulated. According to Pantone Color Institute executive director Leatrice Eiseman, “The fact that technology has gotten so overwhelming and so 24/7 has really created a great part of the need for these comforting, softer colors.” The selection of colors are genderless. It is easy to use these to appeal to everyone, and create trendy spaces via upholstery or adding throw pillows to your furniture.

We made it easier for you by matching our upholstery fabrics with Pantone’s spring colors.

Rose Quartz

The soothing, calming nature of colors in the Spring collections are led by Rose Quartz, a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure. Like a serene sunset, flushed cheek or budding flower, Rose Quartz reminds us to reflect on our surroundings during the busy but lighthearted spring and summer months. The brocade fabric above reminds us the most of rose quartz.

Peach Echo

The fashion and design communities, and consequently, consumers, have been in love with orange for several seasons. Coming to the forefront this Spring is Peach Echo, a shade that emanates friendlier qualities, evoking warmth and accessibility. It is an all-encompassing, tempered companion in the playful orange family, as seen in the matelasse fabric above.


Weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, Serenity comforts with a calming effect, bringing a feeling of respite even in turbulent times. A transcendent blue, Serenity provides us with a naturally connected sense of space. The plaid cotton fabric above is instantly calming.

Snorkel Blue

A maritime-inspired blue, Snorkel Blue plays in the navy family, but with a happier, more energetic context, as seen in the abstract cotton print above. The name alone implies a relaxing vacation and encourages escape. It is striking yet still, with lots of activity bursting from its undertones.


While the majority of the Spring/Summer palette trends toward calmness, a few diversions from the theme emerge that offer a contrast. With Buttercup, designers reveal a shining beacon transporting furniture and their owners to a happier, sunnier place.

Limpet Shell

A shade of aqua that leans toward the green family, Limpet Shell is clear, clean and defined. Suggestive of clarity and freshness, its crisp and modern influences evoke a deliberate, mindful tranquility. The abstract outdoor indoor fabric above brings together modern and tranquility.

Lilac Gray

As in most any season, the need for neutrals arises. The neutral modern tweed above exemplifies grey with lilac undertones. Essentially a basic, the subtlety of the lilac undertone in Lilac Gray, adds a distinctive edge to this classic gray shade.


The high energy Fiesta is a harbinger of excitement, encouraging free-spirited exploration to unknown but welcoming locales. A strong and fiery, yellow-based red, the vivid Fiesta provides a stark contrast to the calming, softer nature of this season’s palette. Like a fiesta, the outdoor indoor fabric above brings energy and fun to your furniture.

Iced Coffee

A transitional color that will take us through the seasons, Iced Coffee manifests as another strong neutral for the season. With its natural earthy quality, the softness and subtlety of Iced Coffee creates a stable foundation when combined with the rest of this season’s palette.

Green Flash

Green Flash calls on its wearer to explore, push the envelope and escape the mundane, radiating an openness that combines with the rest of the palette in unexpected but serendipitous ways. The popularity of this brilliant hue is representative of nature’s persistent influence even in urban environments, a trend continuing to inspire designers. Nature can be seen instantly in the floral print fabric above.
