Pantone LLC, an X-Rite company and the global authority on color and provider of professional color standards for the design industries, today announced PANTONE® 17-5641 Emerald, a lively, radiant, lush green, as the Color of the Year for 2013.
Emerald, a vivid, verdant green, enhances our sense of well-being further by inspiring insight, as well as promoting balance and harmony.
Most often associated with brilliant, precious gemstones, the perception of Emerald is sophisticated and luxurious. Since antiquity, this luminous, magnificent hue has been the color of beauty and new life in many cultures and religions. It’s also the color of growth, renewal and prosperity – no other color conveys regeneration more than green. For centuries, many countries have chosen green to represent healing and unity.
“Green is the most abundant hue in nature – the human eye sees more green than any other color in the spectrum,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “As it has throughout history, multifaceted Emerald continues to sparkle and fascinate. Symbolically, Emerald brings a sense of clarity, renewal and rejuvenation, which is so important in today’s complex world. This powerful and universally appealing tone translates easily to both fashion and home interiors.”
Emerald for Interiors
Enhance your sense of well-being at home by rejuvenating the interior with Emerald paint, accents and accessories. This jewel-like hue will create a luxurious feel in an entryway, powder room, dining room or study, and bring life to a living room as an accent wall. Add a splash of color to the kitchen and dining room areas with Emerald dinnerware, stemware and appliances.
Enliven your home with Pantone bedding, pillows, bath towels and accessories in Emerald available exclusively at jcpenney stores and on jcp.com beginning Feb. 1, 2013.

7. Wegner Oculus Chair – Emerald
Description: A close co-operation with Hans J. Wegner’s Studio has made it possible to recreate an original Wegner easy chair from a clay model and drawings found in the Studio’s archives. Called CH468, the chair was created by Wegner in 1960 but has never been in production – until now. The Studio also had what is, as far as is known, the only existing prototype of the chair. Along with some photos, the prototype inspired us to begin production. We were proud to show the CH468 in Milan – where furniture dealers from around the world gave it a very warm welcome. CH468 is a sculptural easy chair whose construction, back and neck support afford a variety of very comfortable ways to sit. Our craftsmen build the interior frame from wood, just as Wegner designed it. The legs, in brushed stainless steel, create a balanced contrast to the capacious upholstery
