Pantone, the global color authority, has announced its color of the year for 2023 - Viva Magenta. This announcement comes at a time when people around the world are seeking to express themselves more freely and live life on their own terms. We at Mafi Rugs believe this is a perfect time for us to collectively experience creativity and self-expression in new ways. This color was chosen to represent the idea that there are limitless possibilities in life.
This decision is made by Pantone's color experts and is based on "thoughtful consideration and trend analysis." According to Pantone:
Pantone’s Color of the Year, Viva Magenta 18-1750, vibrates with vim and vigor. It is a shade rooted in nature descending from the red family and expressive of a new signal of strength. Viva Magenta is brave and fearless, and a pulsating color whose exuberance promotes a joyous and optimistic celebration, writing a new narrative. This year’s Color of the Year is powerful and empowering. It is a new animated red that revels in pure joy, encouraging experimentation and self-expression without restraint, an electrifying, and a boundaryless shade that is manifesting as a stand-out statement. PANTONE 18-1750 Viva Magenta welcomes anyone and everyone with the same verve for life and rebellious spirit. It is a color that is audacious, full of wit and inclusive of all.
