Special Finishes /Other/GoodDesign/Decorative%20Hardware/special-finishes.jpg Illuminating and Dependable Two colors uniting to create a “message of positivity supported by fortitude” is how Pantone Color Institute Executive Director Leatrice Eiseman describes the 2021 colors of the year. That’s right, two color winners for 2021. The Institute announced that its 2021 Colors of the Year are Ultimate Gray, “emblematic of solid and dependable elements which are everlasting and provide a firm foundation,” and Illuminating, “a bright and cheerful yellow sparkling with vivacity.” Two very different colors that, taken together, signify strength and positivity. Colors such as these communicate and appeal to our emotions and sense of well-being in ways that words cannot. Finish our beautiful door hardware in expressive, durable powder coats.
