Pantone’s 2017 Selection & Laminate Flooring

Greenery 15-0343 is Pantone’s 2017 selection and at FinishBuild we could not be more excited about this particular selection. According to Leatrice Eiseman –executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute- Greenery 15-0343 comes for satisfying our growing desire to rejuvenate and revitalize.

Requisite of a new mindset is what Pantone seems to spread with its new color selection. Besides making a clearly more nature statement Pantone also aims to establish a deeper connection with our inner side. If you see, Greenery 15-0343 has a not only smooth look that can be exceptionally combined with any other dark earth colors but a peaceful tone that can look splendid on neutral light colors.

How Can I Combine Greenery 15-0343 with FinishBuild Flooring Products?

Pantone’s proposal comes with a story, “where we are in our lives and what we desire”. Laurie Pressman (vice president with Pantone Color Institute). This statement take us to a more conscious living where past or future do not take control, where present is lived to its fullest.

When it comes to flooring, combinations are uninterrupted. On the other hand, it is always a good incentive to start with some path in mind. On this 2017, FinishBuild offers you vinyl flooring products that can match perfectly with Pantone’s 2017 selection. Supposing you are planning on adding change your living-room wall’s color into a more Greenery tone.

Match the versatility of your office personality with vinyl flooring looks and Greenery 15-0343. If you are looking for consistent look and a steady surface, then vinyl is the perfect combination. Many business managers prefer vinyl tiles for Lounge areas due to the fact they are simple to install. However, sheet flooring may be ideal if you need to wrap the vinyl around the edge of the stairs. Consider the look you want for your stairs and the installation process that will be easiest for you when deciding on a type of vinyl flooring.

What FinishBuild recommends with Greenery:

Greenery is paired with neutrals, brights, deeper shades, pastels, metallics and even the enduring presence of PANTONE Color of the Year 2016, Rose Quartz and Serenity. These palettes easily cross over fashion, beauty, product and graphic design applications.


Following the Pantone suggestions, Greenery 15-0343 can be a nice addition on living-room furniture. On this 2017 we invite to explore reviving you home vibes into a sectional sofa or any other type that allows you to play with multiple configurations.  Ideally, any sectional you purchase will include fixtures that connect the pieces to keep them from separating. Laminate CHARCOAL code: L-0101487.8TRCHA, from KRONENHAHN is our suggestion on laminate flooring products. Taking into account that you would have strong colors, I personally suggest a neutral tone on your walls, no matter if you happen to own a house or a very illuminated apartment, the key is to get the best of Greenery tones inside your home areas.


Taking into account the pursuit of vitality, we advise you in order to oxygenate GRAPHYTE code: L-0101486.5DRIGRA from our line DRIFTWOOD for a neutral tone. However, earth dark tones such as COFFEE code: L-0101485HERCOF or TEAK code: L-0101485HERTEA from our line HERON can match perfectly with a green futon is a sofa/bed combo. Functionally remains a priority on your home with FinishBuild,  therefore in terms of comfort and usefulness a green futon can folds or releases itself downward to create a large, flat, cushioned sleeping surface. Perfect combination on style and functionality for starting 2017, don’t you think?

Greenery 15-0343  and Fashion

Since 2001Pantone has come with a very positive influence in several industry fields and fashion is no exception, color has historically influenced trends in all facets of design and in 2017 with “greenery” as the chosen color of the year, brands are also very into this new phase of tones. Ranging on products, from handbags to jewelry and housewares, greenery is vital  on this year’s runways, walking in various forms such as  Gucci, Kenzo, Bagelencia, Michael Kors, Zac Posen, and Cynthia Rowley.

Greenery aims to the opposite: minimalism. Pressman referred to a motto by fashion designer Vivienne Westwood that partly inspired Pantone to choose Greenery: “Buy less, choose well, make it last”.

To sum up, Greenery comes with a fresh and emotive vibe that can easily invite us to a more peaceful and soft expression environmentally, fashionable and personally speaking. I personally must share with you guys that this 2017 Pantone selection can be the start of new beginning based on compassion path toward each other as human beings and towards a more conscious action plans toward Mother Nature.
