The sky in a room: the classic blue is the color we want in 2020
After the vibrant energy of the "living coral", this year the "Classic Blue" is staged: we are talking about the Pantone Color of the year 2020, recently announced by Pantone, the company that after coding the colors, has established itself in recent years as the highest authority and trendsetter on color. What is the "Pantone Color of the year"? Essentially a prediction, the result of sociological research that leads to identifying which color we will look for in the coming year, when choosing clothing, furnishings and accessories. The idea behind this research is that in each historical period, as a consequence of the conditions and events related to the economic, political and social sphere, people are led to identify their emotions in some colors and therefore to seek them more than others . In 2020, therefore, according to Pantone, we will all go in search of the most classic of blues and in particular states that "By infusing calm, confidence and a sense of connection, this timeless shade of blue highlights our desire for a stable and reliable base from which to start while we are preparing to cross the threshold of a new era ”. The search for stability, moreover, is a recurring motive in recent years, since the financial, economic and productive model has begun to waver. Pantone, therefore, tries to foresee our feelings in 2020, confirming that we will need a return to the classic aesthetic canons, starting from the choice of colors. "We live in an age that requires trust and hope. PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue, a stable shade of blue on which we can always rely, conveys precisely this feeling of constancy and confidence. Equipped with profound resonance, it constitutes a solid foundation to which to anchor. Boundless blue that evokes the vast and endless evening sky, encourages us to wade beyond the obvious to weigh more deeply and outside the box, expand our horizons and encourage the flow of communication ", said Executive Director Leatrice Eiseman Pantone Color Institute. And here the blue also returns to our homes, with a series of stylish furniture and accessories.

Armchair with vaguely retro lines, enveloping and comfortable, thanks also to the high back that allows you to rest the whole back. And it is perfect in its blue, informal but elegant, and easy to combine with other home textiles.

Even the Backwing armchair designed by Patricia Urquiola for Cassina best expresses its aesthetic in the blue chromatic variant. It is a seat of character, but at the same time agile and discreet, for a contemporary but welcoming conversation corner.
Tom Dixon also anticipated the classic blue trend by using it, for example, as a variant of his Wing Back upholstery collection, characterized by 1950s lines and a very high and glamorous back.
We remain in the field of upholstery, but we move into the bedroom where blue is particularly suitable because it transmits serenity and calm. The Double bed is characterized by two large cushions that act as a headboard that invite to rest, with style.
The Magma table in the blue version is impressive. The top is in molten glass at high heat and tempered, while the structure is in solid wood available in natural or gray-stained oak. The surface is not smooth but precisely this "imperfection" makes it interesting and unique in its kind, and reminds, in fact, the consistency of magma.
A touch of classic blue also in the accessories and in particular in the lighting: the Ice Blink table lamp by Venini, decorative and hypnotic, is an authentic sculpture.
