Pantone Announces Home Furnishings Color Forecast for the Year 2000

Carlstadt, NJ, March 30, 2000 -- Pantone, Inc., the world renowned authority on color and color trends, announces its home furnishings color forecast for the Year 2000. There are seven palettes in the forecast, each with a balance of warm and cool colors.

According to Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, "The Pantone home furnishings forecast for 2000 truly represents the divergence of consumer tastes and the need to express one's own personality."

"Home palettes have become more and more similar to fashion palettes," adds Lisa Herbert, senior vice president of the Pantone Textile, Home and Fashion Division. "Colors in our home often resemble the colors we are wearing."
