How To Incorporate the 2021 Pantone Colors in Your Décor

The phrase “happy new year” means so much this year. While everyone on the planet had to dig deep for the strength to get through 2020, there’s a hefty dose of optimism that this year will truly be better.

The annual Color of the Year presented by Pantone plays perfectly into these sentiments. Two colors — Ultimate Gray and Illuminating — share the spotlight for 2021. With its natural, warm hue, the gray exudes strength and practicality while the bright yellow offers the promise of brighter days ahead.


The Barn Light Electric palette of finish colors includes several tones of grey and yellow including Graphite and Yellow in our porcelain enamel finish and Industrial Grey and Buttery Yellow in the powder coat option.

Pantone’s shade of yellow called Illuminating is a bright and happy hue. To get the look, consider our Buttery Yellow finish shown here on our 24″ Original™ Warehouse Pendant Light.
