Dalton—Pantone, the world’s authority on color, announced today that the much anticipated Color of the Year 2015 is none other than Marsala 18-1438. Pantone’s team of colorists describes the selected shade as sensual, appealing, compelling and cordial. Consumers everywhere will be in immediate search for fashion, beauty and home interior products containing the color and because of that, Oriental Weavers has made the job of area rug retailers a little easier.

Oriental Weavers, the world’s largest rug manufacturer, and PANTONE UNIVERSE entered into a successful partnership in 2013. Due to Oriental Weavers’ exclusive product development relationship with Pantone, the company has been working with the PANTONE Color of the Year 2015 months in advance of today’s public announcement in order to incorporate the sought-after color into the company’s new designs, launching at Atlanta and Las Vegas rug markets in January.

“We are extremely proud of our new PANTONE UNIVERSE rugs featuring Marsala 18-1438, the new PANTONE Color of the Year 2015,” said Jonathan Witt, senior vice-president of Oriental Weavers. “After seeing the countless media stories Pantone received on the Marsala announcement, consumers across the country will flock to buy items incorporating the new Color of the Year 2015. This tremendously benefits our retailers because only they will be able to say they have the official PANTONE UNIVERSE area rugs featuring the new ‘it’ color for the New Year. Make sure to come see us in Atlanta and Las Vegas to see the gorgeous, new PANTONE Color of the Year 2015 areas rugs in person!”
