Apparently, the design gods want everyone to kick off the holiday season on a well-lit high note because Pantone has just released its first ever light collection.
Created in collaboration with Danish company e3light, Pantone's Light Collection offers five styles to choose from including the drop pendants, pendant lamps, lamp shades, the "Antares" floor lamp and the "Capella" table lamp. Simply put, the color matching magnate has left you with no excuse to continue allowing bad lighting to cast a sad hue over your office or living space.
"Simplicity, minimalism, and functionality are deeply rooted in the design philosophy for the PANTONE lighting collection," the company says of its newly launched line of lights. "Taking inspiration from iconic Scandinavian design traditions that transform ingenious functionality into pure, clean lines, the PANTONE Light collection, packs sophisticated technology into creative solutions, touting distinctive style through playful color and a modest sensibility."
Given all of the options, narrowing down your preferred lighting source might be a challenge, and the array of colors won't make the job any easier. The lights come in both eye-catching and more neutral shades like Cardinal, a deep cherry red; Forest Biome, a warm forest green; and Sargasso Sea, a dark blue-grey, as well steel grey, crisp white and black options.
"The design has been developed with focus on being appealing and easy to understand for our target customer—easy to use and fit into most interiors with its very minimalistic expression, putting focus on the colors and utilizing the core of Pantone's brand legacy," e3light art director Kåre Arndt de Thurah told House Beautiful UK of the collaborative project.
Fortunately, you'll be able to brighten up your home or office space with Pantone lighting without breaking the bank: Prices from the collection range from $60 to $225.
