Pantone revealed the 2020 Color of Year is Classic Blue. This is a great choice for outdoor furniture and accessories because this hue beautifully complements our coastal environment and opens a world of options for blending a classic color with modern design and accents.
The 2020 color is a nod to the first Color of the Year, Cerulean, another blue hue chosen in 1999 to capture a moment in time. The Pantone Color Institute selected Classic Blue to represent reassurance, confidence and a connection that people may be searching for in an uncertain global environment. Each year’s color is decided through a thoughtful process that takes into consideration lifestyle and industry trends. Color influences can come from art, upcoming media, movies, lifestyles, socioeconomic and political conditions, travel destinations, new technology among other benchmarks.
For those who want to incorporate the 2020 color, consider accessories/pillows, outdoor furniture cushions and outdoor fabrics designed for backyards, patios and porches. Here’s some ideas for infusing Classic Blue in your backyard or outdoor room:
As An Accent
Spruce up your outdoor space with the color of the year (Classic Blue) by adding throw pillows that bring the perfect pop of color to almost any outdoor furniture—classic or modern design.

Below, the Oasis Collection by Lane Venture gains a fresh coastal feel with classic blue outdoor pillows complemented by patterns and stripes in matching shades.
Another great way to infuse the color of the year is by selecting outdoor furniture with Classic Blue cushions. Brown Jordan‘s Parkway Modular Sectionals are a great example of incorporating this year’s classic blue hue with modern design.
