2015 3DL Trend Report


bordeaux kitchenExperts in the color industry are calling for nuanced neutrals and organic colors inspired by natural elements for 2015.  The global color authority, Pantone, has released its color of the year – Marsala. From the Pantone website:


“While PANTONE 18-3224 Radiant Orchid, the captivating 2014 color of the year, encouraged creativity and innovation, Marsala enriches our mind, body and soul, exuding confidence and stability,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. “Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this tasteful hue embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal, while its grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness. This hearty, yet stylish tone is universally appealing and translates easily to fashion, beauty, industrial design, home furnishings and interiors.”

Marsala translates to our 3DL (thermofoil) product line through quite a few colors.  Tawny Port, Wild Cherry, Port Maple, Clove, Shiraz Cherry and Autumn Leaves come to mind because of their red-brown color tones.  All of our available colors are easily viewed at our webpage. Colors Available
