Powered by Pantone, purple pops in home goods and décor



The purple family, from nature-loving lavender to lush aubergine, forms a color base with a regal and complex history. It’s versatile, too, with a range that plays from feminine to masculine and pairs with both warm and cool neutrals. All of which might have factored into Pantone’s decision to name Ultra Violet, a deep and vibrant purple, its 2018 color of the year. Here are a handful of ways to incorporate purple into your home.

Sherwin-Williams’ Exclusive Plum is a rich purple-gray that feels oh-so modern.

Lavender glow


This pair of unusual, 1960s-era aluminum and black pendant lights by Danish designer Jo Hammerborg have an undercoating of lavender that emits an sexy glow. $1,800 for the pair; Lynn Goode Vintage, 3637 W. Alabama, Suite 340

Parsons chairs

A set of midcentury-modern legend Milo Baughman’s 1960s-era Parsons chairs were recently recovered in Ralph Lauren Chancery garnet velvet. The fabric was chosen the week trend-setting artist Prince died. Set of four is $8,000 (may be bought in pairs); Lynn Goode Vintage, 3637 W. Alabama, Suite 340

Classic Spitzmiller

Christopher Spitzmiller’s classic lines and deeply pigmented glazes turn table lighting into art. Here, his Garniture model in aubergine with 23 karat gold water gild bases should maintain pride of place well beyond Pantone’s yearlong color reign. $1,380; Found, 3433 W. Alabama

Bubble grand pouf

Sacha Lakic’s popular Bubble line for Roche Bobois continues to grow with a new curved, three- to four-seat sofa and a grand pouf, shown here in Malva. $3,565 grand pouf; Roche Bobois, 4810 San Felipe
