Pantone Colour of the Year 2012: Tangerine Tango

Tuesday, January 10th, 2012
Orange coloured wallpaper and interior ideas

Pantone Tangerine Tango

Each year, the Pantone Color Institute reveal their colour of the year and for 2012 they’ve declared it to be the vibrant hue of Tangerine Tango (17-1463).

After being somewhat uninspired by last year’s colour choice (Honeysuckle, Pantone 18-2120), the cheery reddish orange shade of Tangerine Tango is definitely more uplifting and inspiring.

As a colour, orange is regarded as being energising, so using dashes of orange within your interiors may both liven up the look of a room and uplift your spirits.

Keen to get orange into your home? Here are some ideas for using Tangerine Tango and orange in your home!

Designer Flux portable chairFlux outdoor garden chairFlux flexible design home furniture

Imagine a chair that comes in the form of a flatpack envelope, that can be sent easily be post, and opens up to provide a sturdy, portable piece of furniture.

Creating practical, foldable, usable furniture was the aim of industrial designers, Douwe Jacobs and Tom Schouten, who set up Flux in 2009. The first result of their inspiration and design ideas is the Flux Chair – a fully flexible folding chair that saves on floor space when it’s not in use and is a breeze to move.

The clever design means that it only takes two simple folds to transform a flat envelope with a handle into a designer chair. The Flux chair is waterproof, so it can be used outdoors in your garden, on a beach or in a park, as well as in any room of your home.

The chair itself weighs 4.5kg and it can support weights of up to 160kg.

The Flux chair is available in a selection of colours, including red, white, blue, grey, yellow and dark grey. Various retailers have the Flux chair in stock, in different colours – Oliver Bonas (6 colours currently available, priced at £109), Made in Design (£113, plus they sell Flux cushions too) and Amazon (lots of colours, £109).
