2016 – A Year in Color

2016 was an amazing year of color! From the subtle tones of Tinted Neutrals to the dark moody tones of Burgundy, a huge spectrum of color variation has inspired us to design spaces and new products. We feed on trends to inspire our products and designs, trend spotting across websites, blogs and trade fairs – and in the cityscapes around us. Color trends remain a constant inspiration, a vital tool to expand our design possibilities and turn #NegativeToPositive.


Looking Back at 2016

In 2016 we found an unpredictable year for color, with traditional colors being used in more imaginative ways and unexpected color combinations emerging.

Two of our favorites were Turquoise and Lilac. They were both a joy to work with and proved to be popular among our customers as well. The tones of these palettes are balanced and calming, and they’re easy to coordinate with Interface products to flood fill spaces or use as a highlight to zone spaces.


Looking Forward to 2017

There is no doubt color will positively impact spaces in 2017. Color is key for mood and effectiveness and for getting the most out of your employees – so when it comes to picking the right color for an interior scheme, color decisions are paramount.


While next year’s palette will continue to vary in color, one trend we expect to remain is the use of bright and vivid tones reminiscent of hues seen in nature. At Interface, biophilic design is a key element when it comes to thinking about design and plays an important role when we design new products. Ranges such as Urban Retreat and Human Nature, as well as many more, are inspired by nature’s designs and hues.


We have a passion for color. And we’re looking forward to sharing our celebration of color with you through 2017 and beyond.
