Eight Color Palettes Blend Classic Elegance with Modern Spice for
Application in Product and Interior Design

Pantone released their View 2008 color forecast for the home furnishings and home
interiors market at the International Home & Housewares Show 2007.
“Whether designing interiors or creating products for the home, satisfying
consumers’ or clients’ more demanding perceived needs and desires in both styling
and color is a major challenge in today’s marketplace,” said Leatrice Eiseman,
executive director of the Pantone Color Institute® and author of seven books
including More Alive With Color".

“People are looking beyond a simple matching process to colors they can instantly
connect with, suit their personal comfort level and excite the imagination. At the
same time, there is the practical need to connect to products or settings they
already own. As always, it is the introduction of new or renewed themes and colors
or unique combinations that will create these essential connections.”
