Blue Furniture Ideas to Inspire With Pantone’s 2022 Colour of the Year, Very Peri

Following on from Pantone’s 2021 colours of the year ‘Ultimate Grey’ and ‘Illuminating’ yellow, a new 2022 shade has been announced. ‘Very Peri’ is a joyful colour set to inspire a swarm of blue furniture ideas for the home.

This confident blue is a homage to our post-pandemic culture of innovation and opportunity. It is a warm and happy shade, which blends “the faithfulness and consistency of blue with the energy and excitement of red”. Created, for the first time, exclusively by Pantone for its colour of the year award.

The colour is set to represent the future of a new landscape of possibilities. While blue tones have always evoked earthy and natural energies when used throughout the home, the animation of Very Peri is set to combine the calming qualities of ‘blue’ with a modern creative burst to host the excitement of a new post-pandemic world.

Blue Furniture Ideas to Inspire

Evoking this year’s stunning colour, our Blue Library furniture design is finished in vibrant Blueberry, an exclusive shade from our extensive paint library. A joyous pop of periwinkle blue breathes new life into an awkward alcove.

Perfectly exhibiting how this vibrant colour can work in your home, our Blue Library’s striking finish gives the design so much character. Expertly (and perfectly) hand-finished, this colourful choice adds warmth, depth and interest to the furniture. Colour therapists believe different colours have different properties and purposes – blue is the colour of the mind and brings soothing, calming qualities to a room, an ideal selection for a library.

Using Blue as an Accent Colour in the Home

While not every homeowner seeks such a dramatic display of colour in the home, using back panels in fitted furniture to host a pop of Very Peri is the perfect way to introduce blue furniture ideas into a more minimalistic design.

Shown here in our Contemporary Blue Lounge design, this joyous shade of blue has been used as an accent rather than a feature. While neutral colours lead the way in the grand scheme, scatter cushions, throws and fitted back panels on open shelving have been used to contrast against the more subtle shades. Minimalism with a pop!
