Shimmery, Metallic Signature Colors

Friday, April 15, 2011

LightStyle Signature Colors“Seen all over the runway and at key home furnishings trade shows this past season, metallics speak to our desire to have luxury and glamour in our lives,” says Leatrice Eiseman, who is the Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, a leading authority on color trends.

Eiseman discussed the emergence of metallic color trends in Pantone's TONES Newsletter in late 2010: “The wide variety of gold metallic shades we have seen in the past is still out there; however, as we move forward to 2011 we are seeing consumers turning away from excessive glitz and "bling" and instead moving toward metallic finishes and treatments that appear warmer. Artful patterning, mottled finishes and distressed or etching techniques are some of the new surface treatments being applied to the standard gold, silver and bronze metallic shades, as well as to color. The ongoing interest in combining different metallic shades is a trend we also see continuing for 2011.”

The metallics that make up the Signature Color collection for Runco’s FinishPalette for projectors and flat panel displays are great examples of these trends. Metal shades like silver, copper, and gold, as well as jewel tones, come to life in a subtle sparkle that adds depth and richness. Just as Leatrice suggests, we can combine metallics to create a unique duo-tone look on the LightStyle projectors, for instance.
