Peach Fuzz Radiance:  Pantone’s Color of the Year Embodies Comfort & Warmth

Pantone has once again captured the essence of our shared values through color, unveiling Peach Fuzz (Pantone 13-1023) as the Color of the Year for 2024. This delicate hue, nestled between pink and orange, signifies a yearning for kindness, compassion, and connection while enveloping spaces in a comforting warmth for a serene future.

In celebration of Pantone's 25th anniversary of the Color of the Year program, Peach Fuzz follows the footsteps of its predecessor, Viva Magenta (read more here), reflecting an evolving understanding of our priorities and an appreciation for the moments spent with loved ones.

Laurie Pressman, VP of the Pantone Color Institute, emphasizes the tactile significance of Peach Fuzz, symbolizing the importance of touch in our lives.

Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute said “In seeking a hue that echoes our innate yearning for closeness and connection, we chose a color radiant with warmth and modern elegance. A shade that resonates with compassion, offers a tactile embrace, and effortlessly bridges the youthful with the timeless.”

This versatile color, reminiscent of a knitted blanket or faux fur rug, introduces a sense of security and ease into our homes. Peach Fuzz mirrors our yearning for nostalgia, blending the simplicity of the past with a contemporary ambiance that propels us into the future. Peach Fuzz can be incorporated creatively through interior design or even your next pair of frames!

Inspired by the velvety peach tone of this color, we have curated a selection of frames that embrace a similar spirit and feel. Väri’s Classic Collection, features TR90 frames with a soft and tactile feel. This special feel and treatment allows for little to no slippage on the nose, making for a comfortable frame.
