9. Classic blue
Named Colour of the Year 2020 by the Pantone Color Institute last December, Classic Blue was shown combined with many similar colours at this edition of Maison & Objet. It inspires an ambience of calm, confidence and harmony, and mixes easily with this year’s other popular shades, especially burgundy. Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, describes it as “a warm presence that evokes the sky at the end of the day, vast and infinite, opening up a world of possibilities”.
