Furniture for hire in Pantone Colours of the Year 2021

furniture for hire: Pantone colours 2021

Whilst the Rio Lounge signature look is more about enduring style than fast fashion, nevertheless we like to stay in touch with trends.  In this feature, we take a look at the Pantone Colours of the Year 2021.  Read on to discover more about this year’s chosen shades.  Explore more about how you can use our furniture for hire to give a nod to this year’s hottest colour trends.

What is this year’s Pantone Colour of the Year?

Pantone colour of the year 2021The Pantone Institute have chosen a colour of the year every year since 2000. However, this year, they have chosen two complementary colours; being Pantone 17-5104- Ultimate Grey, and Pantone 13-0647 – ‘Illuminating’ , an uplifting yellow.  The institute describe Ultimate Grey as ‘practical and rock solid, but at the same time warming and optimistic’. Meanwhile, ‘Illuminating’ is described as a colour of strength and positivity. Together they give a message of happiness supported by fortitude. Take a look at our blog from last year to discover more about the Pantone Institute and how the Colour (s) of the Year are chosen.

We think the two colours for this year make a really great combination. So, we set about looking at ways our Rio Lounge furniture for hire could be used to incorporate the two colours.  Here’s what we came up with:

Our Portofino Daybeds

Our Portofino Daybeds are a little different from the rest of our rattan range; they are styled in grey rattan, rather than black or white. Better still, these cool luxury sunbeds feature a fully adjustable headrest, so you can choose how chilled out you want to be. They come in a choice of single and double bed versions.  Accessorised with our funky rectangular yellow scatter cushions, we think they really encapsulate the Pantone 2021 colour trend.




Changing up the look of our Marrakesh sofa hire with a simple cushion cover change

Our modular Marrakesh sofa sets are our most popular product and are available in both black and white rattan.  However, simply by changing the cushion cover colour, you can create quite a different look. In this picture you can see how fabulous our black Marrakesh looks with grey covers instead of the usual white.  Our fabulous shiny silver champagne bowls are ready to keep that fizz chilled!


Mixing and matching those bright shades

Of course, sometimes its fine to break all the rules and have a little fun with your colour choices.  See how we have accessorised our pristine white faux leather Ana Mandara sofas with some acid bright scatter cushions and club ottomans. Our ottomans are really handy little cubes, not only do they look super funky, but they are also ideal when you need additional, versatile seating.  Available in yellow, pink and many other shades too!
