Just In Time For Football Season

Tuesday, August 10, 2010

FinishPalette Design
By Pippa Edelen

I am an enormous fan of college football. I plan my Saturdays each fall around my beloved UO Duck games (for those of you who aren’t living within the reaches of the Pac-10 – err, Pac-12? - you likely know the University of Oregon less for its football and more for its completely radical, albeit somewhat unconventional, uniforms). In my house, nothing is better than waking up early Saturday to watch ESPN Gameday, especially when they are in Eugene, then catching the games on the East Coast, watching my Ducks later that afternoon followed by lazy Sunday nights to see the latest BCS rankings. My husband grew up in Texas, went to A&M and loves his Cowboys, so pigskin is dominant every weekend and holiday, from now through January, in our house.

OSU FinishPalette DesignOver the last few years we’ve amassed every UO, A&M and Cowboy piece of team merchandise you can think of, from coolers to pajamas. But today marks the dawn of an entirely new way for us to show-off our support – Runco’s FinishPalette projectors. Because my love of Oregon would likely trump my husband’s fanaticism for America’s Team and the Aggies, we’ll be getting a new LightStyle projector complete with UO colors and logo. And while seeing the examples on the FinishPalette website is really nice, nothing is as impressive as seeing a painted sample in the flesh. I was sold on getting a UO projector after I saw the first sample we had at Runco, which featured Ohio State. As a Duck fan licking my wounds from our recent Rose Bowl loss to Ohio State, it’s no small feat that OSU merchandise could convince me of anything. But the finish is truly so gorgeous and so much fun (my husband even likes the UT version) that it will make any sports fan want to see his colors on a projector. In case you’re not a UO, A&M or Dallas Cowboys fan the FinishPalette offering has more than 60 top NCAA schools and can color match any team. FinishPalette is the ultimate piece of merchandise for the true sports fan. Oh yeah, and beyond the really amazing finish and homage to your team, nothing beats flawless HD football on a 108” (or larger) screen all day Saturday and all day Sunday. After all, the Runco LightStyle LS-5 is more than just a pretty trophy wife and delivers a stellar image. Are you ready for some football?

Turquoise is the New Black

Wednesday, July 14, 2010

In an excerpt from Tones newsletter from Pantone, the write "Long associated with the talismanic jewelery of the American Southwest and the tropical Caribbean waters, turquoise suggests journeys both spiritual and physical. In a year when we'd all like to escape, even if only a fantasy, PANTONE 15-5519 Turquoise was a natural choice for our Color of the Year 2010."

Turquoise has extended its soothing yet invigorating reach into quite unexpected places this year - from footwear to housewares. One such example is Runco Cool, one of the 13 signature colors in the Runco ColourPalette. Imagine an art deco-inspired room with crisp shades of white and gray and a gorgeous Runco flat panel bespeaking elegance surrounding by the vivid turquoise in Runco Cool. Makes for quite an inspired room. Have you spotted turquoise lately?
