Pantone 2015 Color of the Year

pantone marsala

Pantone, the global experts on color, recently announced their color of the year for 2015, and it just might be hiding in your wine cabinet. It’s Marsala, and its rich, welcoming hue makes it a natural for furniture, accent pieces, accessories and paint.


“While 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.”


Nurturing and fulfilling, Eiseman says Marsala is a natural fit for the kitchen and dining room – making it ideal for tabletop and linens throughout the home. Marsala is also an ideal choice for rugs and upholstered living room furniture. And this hue will be especially prominent in striping and floral patterns found in printed placemats, dinnerware, bedding and throws.


Of course, Art Van Furniture has the look. Take a look at these pieces that will update your home, and immediately put you on trend.


Marsala Sofa


Love Pantone’s new color of the year? Go all in with our Tori Sofa, which features this perfect shade of red. Bold but not overpowering – much like a good wine – the fun accent pattern on the toss pillows adds neutral tones to your room.


Marsala Ottoman


Another way to update your home is to introduce Marsala with an upholstered ottoman. Our Foley Cocktail Ottoman is generously proportioned, and features a striking pattern mixing the tone with other earthy colors. A statement piece, this ottoman is sure to attract attention and compliments.


Marsala Rug


Marsala is an eye-catching shade underfoot, as well, and our Inferno Red Rug is a perfect choice. Featuring a pallet of warm and neutral tones, it will complement most styles of decor. Durable, this rug is a great choice for high-traffic areas.


Marsala Linens


Or put this warm color in the bedroom with our Charleston Collection Comforter. The rich shade brings drama to the room, and the design features detailed stitching that creates a subtle pattern. The set includes the comforter as well as a pair of Euro shams, one double sham and one decorative accent pillow.
