Pantone 2016 Color at the Salone del Mobile Milan

Monday, June 27th, 2016

Pantone’s 2016 Rose Quarts and Serenity colors were pretty central at this year’s Salone del Mobile in Milan.  Starting with the most memorable element of the Tonelli showroom, the Atomic wall mirror by Giovanni Garatoni that incorporated circular mirrors in various size with bronze, gold grey and pink colors.  Alvar bed by Giuseppe Vigano for Bonaldo was also shown in pink, stealing the show with its inviting elegance, stylish quilting details and utilitarian versatility.  Tonin Casa, on the other hand, chose to incorporate the blue tones into this year’s repertoire by reinventing a staple, the Goya sideboard by Tonin Casa in a new color that was reminiscent of Pantone’s Serenity.
