EXMORE, VA -- New Ravenna, one of America’s premier designers and manufacturers of mosaics for both residential and commercial installations, recently presented their handcrafted mosaic designs incorporating Classic Blue, Pantone's new color of the year.

Represented in various shades of jewel glass, this timeless color is most often paired with saturated hues of complimentary blue and crisp white stone or glass. According to Pantone, “PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue is elegant in its simplicity. Suggestive of the sky at dusk, the reassuring qualities of the thought-provoking PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue highlight our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era.”

“I can’t think of a color that is more universally loved than a classic rich blue,” said Cean Irminger, creative director of New Ravenna. “Perhaps we love it because it is the ultimate color chameleon, looking equally at home in the ultra-elegant and charmingly casual environments. Maybe it is for the deep sense of nostalgia it can awaken when we are reminded of childhood summers at the beach or our grandparent’s blue willow place settings. Or maybe we are just all hot-wired to love it because it is the exact color of our beautiful planet. Classic Blue is the one color that has never gone out of style, and I can confidently predict that it never will.”
