Between neon and sorbet
5/16/2012

At this year’s Salone del Mobile the colors were dominated by contrasts, soft and harsh tones: Pale pastel was on show alongside bright neon. Upholstered furniture and carpets were in sorbet colors and recalled French macaroons in apricot, mint or vanilla. The shades are restrained, appear light and finely nuanced with a low degree of saturation. As colorful contrasts there were occasional tables and wooden chairs painted in an intensive bright red and neon yellow, which looked fluorescent in the artificial light of the trade fair halls. There were conspicuous combinations of shades previously not considered to be compatible – bright red and bright orange, turquoise and yellowish green. Both the neon and pastel tones featured as monochrome blocks of colors without any patterns superimposed on them. est
