Consider the Color Trends of 2018 When Choosing Your New Furniture

The grays, tropical greens, and warm neutrals of 2017 are being edged out by braver and bolder color choices on walls and furniture pieces. Here are a few 2018 color trends to keep in mind when you are shopping for your new furniture pieces.

Retro Is In

Retro golds, browns, and deep greens are inviting and nostalgic. Think of all the colors of the ‘60s, but with a fresh, modern spin.

  • Green: Lush, energizing shades of green complement currently trending darker furniture.
  • Brown: Neutral, earthy tones feel sophisticated and natural while exuding warmth and comfort. They are also perfect for mixing with bright pops of color and animal prints.
  • Yellow: Vibrant yellows bring a childlike joy to a space while making a cheerful, cozy statement and pair well with blue and cream accents.

Pantone Purple

Recognized around the world as a leading source of color information, The Pantone Color Institute named Ultra Violet (Pantone 18-3838) the 2018 Color of the Year. This color “symbolizes experimentation and non-conformity, spurring individuals to imagine their unique mark on the world, and push boundaries through creative outlets.” This rich, dramatically provocative, thoughtful shade of purple adds energy and depth to any room.


Also, according to Pantone, metallics are no longer a dramatic color choice. In fact, they’re part of the “new neutrals” for 2018, according to Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute. While luxe metallic touches are not new, the choice of metallic finish is trending away from copper and rose gold (which have been popular for the last five years or so) toward sophisticated and organic brass. Brass furniture and accessories add a luxurious finish to any room and its tones match well with current trending colors.
