Living Coral is the Pantone Color of the Year for 2019

As we finish 2018, we'll say goodbye to ultra-violet and welcome a new color of the year. Last week, The Pantone Color Institute announced that 2019's color of the year is Living Coral. This decision is made by Pantone's color experts and is based on "thoughtful consideration and trend analysis." According to Pantone:

"Living Coral welcomes and encourages lighthearted activity. Symbolizing our innate need for optimism and joyful pursuits, PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral embodies our desire for playful expression."

As the leading provider of custom area rugs in the Northwest, Mafi International strives to stay up to date with the latest interior design trends. Our Bellevue and Tacoma showrooms consistently display area rugs that feature a variety of current trends, and also feature our Mafi Signature custom rugs collection, which allows customers to incorporate their own colors and design features.

Incorporating the Color of the Year Into Your Interior Design
Whether you're looking to add a simple touch of this year's color of the year into the room you're designing or you're planning to make Living Coral your feature color, an area rug can help create the look you're going for. By incorporating an area rug into your room, you'll be able to seamlessly pull all of the various aspects of your design that have included this "life-affirming" shade together.

Design Your Own Rug With Living Coral
Although our Bellevue area rug showroom carries a number of beautiful designs that feature 2019's color of the year, we understand that some of our customers have unique tastes. That's why Mafi International offers you the chance to design your very own custom rugs online. We have hundreds of patterns to choose from and the color variations are limitless.
