Emerald City

Posted on 4/29/2013

Emerald was named color of 2013 by color experts at PANTONE.  This vivid verdant green made its presence successfully at the High Point Home Furnishing Market in April. Many exhibitors made sure to splash emerald in their showroom and for those who didn’t…fail to spot a big opportunity for 2013.  Last year’s color, Tangerine Orange, provided the energy boost we needed to recharge and move forward. This year, emerald will enhance the sense of our well being by promoting balance and harmony. 

This radiant color is typically associated with precious gemstones, so there is a perception of sophistication and prosperity. Many cultures and religions recognize emerald as the color of beauty and new life. Emerald has healing qualities as well because it conveys regeneration, healing, and unity. With the strong presence of emerald in home décor and accessories this year, soon everyone will be seeing green.
