2023 Color of the Year: Inspiration for Your Office

2023 Color of the Year – Viva Magenta

Pantone, a global authority on color, has been selecting a “Color of the Year” for over two decades. The design industry anticipates this annual announcement as do many other industries where color plays a significant role. Pantone Color of the Year is meant to represent the current cultural and social climate, and the chosen color is often a reflection of current trends and moods.


As you may already know, Pantone announced their Color of the Year for 2023: Viva Magenta (Pantone 18-2230). Viva Magenta is a bold and vivacious color that can bring a pop of energy and excitement to furniture design. Using the Pantone Color of the Year in office furniture design can be an exciting way to create a modern and inspiring workspace.
