Pantone Fall 2018 Color Trend Report Reflects Hand-Blown Lighting

The Pantone Fall 2018 Color Trend Report is the essential color guide to the season. Inspired by the designs at New York Fashion Week, Pantone's top 10 colors fully capture the need for individuality, ingenuity, and creativity. Like Pantone's colors, Niche's contemporary colored glass is influenced by the beautiful details in the world. Similar to the selected shades chosen by the world-renowned authority of color, many of Niche's signature glass hues "are being used to make very specific color statements on their own."


Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, notes, "As designers and consumers alike continue to transition away from cyclical trends, and instead focus on self-expressive colors that evade antiquated seasonal structure, we are seeing very notable non-traditional choices." Pantone's picks for the upcoming season are being categorized as "autumnal hues that evoke the feeling of leaves on the forest floor, rich plumage and twilight reveal a modern fall palette of deep and rich tones with outbursts of colorful surprise." Below, see the shades of the season paired with complementary hand-blown lighting.
