Eight products that come in Pantone colour of the year Greenery

Pantone's just-announced colour of the year is a predictor of what will be big in 2017, but some designs in the hue are already here.

The colour company's pick for next year is a "tangy yellow-green" shade called Greenery – technically, Pantone 15-0343. If 2016 colour of the year rose-quartz is any indication, then we can expect to see a very green 2017.

Variations of the shade have already cropped up in the likes of 3D-knitted chairs by Benjamin Hubert, rocking horses by Thonet and uranium glassware by Martin Jakobsen.

Read on for our top eight Greenery-tinged picks:


Konnekt seating by Roger Persson for Swedese

The Konnekt system by Gothenburg designer Roger Persson comprises poufs in several shades of green, including one similar to Pantone 15-0343.

The variously shaped modules can be mixed and matched together with backrests, tables and planters to create an island of seating.

Cradle chair by Benjamin Hubert's Layer for Moroso

Benjamin Hubert's Cradle chair collection features seat backs made from a stretch mesh created using similar knitting technology to Nike's Flyknit material.

Roll chair by Patricia Urqiola for Kettal

The Roll chair's back support is formed from padded horizontal strips that look as if they've been wrapped up and attached like roll mats tied to a backpack.

Spanish designer Patricia Urquiola created the chair for outdoor use, so it's fitting it comes in a grassy Greenery-like shade.

Gem glassware by Martin Jakobsen
