Our Color of the Year for 2023 celebrates origins – the source from which all things rise. The feature color, Tiramisu (C2-600), is a rich, restorative cedar inspired by the diverse range and tonalities of natural wood – each species possessing a unique beauty – and the rich mineral hues of the soil from which they grow.
Two additional capsule colors, Stout (C2-965), a full-spectrum near-black, and En Pointe (C2-851), a graceful off-white, present a grounding canvas to express your unique perspective.
Nurturing and dynamic, Tiramisu emits warm, ambient undertones that flicker gold and copper, inviting a sophistication and versatility that refuses to go unnoticed. It symbolizes genuineness, comfort, stability, endurance, and the strength of simplicity. This nuanced color provides a rich canvas to showcase art and furnishings and unearths a dialog of natural warmth and joy with its rich, grounding tones.
Our modern, artistic view of black is ironically made without black ink, allowing it to reflect the full range of natural light – an essential element for deeper tones. Though its color is velvety and dark, Stout is not heavy due to its multi-colorant base, which gives it a luxurious, versatile sophistication.
A remarkably graceful shade of near-white, En Pointe is ambiguous and fluid, effortlessly adapting to its environment. Warm, calming, and timeless, its color is reminiscent of raw lamb’s wool or pale pebblestone – with a hint of tint that makes it a perfect choice for traditional or contemporary spaces.
