Now that the Pantone Color of the Year is officially here, we're expecting to see it in lots of spaces.

Laurie Pressman, vice president of the Pantone Color Institute, tells Hunker that Pantone put an emphasis on creating an experience for Pantone enthusiasts to "take a colorful journey and immerse themselves into the feelings and mood of PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue." Part of that means creating ways for the color to reach hue lovers through different senses.

Take a peek at some of the Pantone items this year, which want to appeal to everything from your taste buds to your interior style:

TEALEAVES Loose Leaf Tea, Pantone Color of the Year 2020 (Five cups), $6

Marked as "the official bespoke tea of the Pantone Color of the Year 2020," this herbal loose leaf tea contains "peaceful berry notes" and "memorable citrus." The retailer even includes a cocktail recipe (using a tea syrup) for all your Classic Blue-themed parties.

The Inside Mid-Century Sofa in Dusk, $2,199

Pantone worked with The Inside to create "a custom Color of the Year 2020 fabric" that evoked Classic Blue. The Inside calls it "Dusk," and according to the website it's only available for a limited time.

Firmenich x Pantone Jelly (and Candle)

Pantone also worked with Firmenich, described as "the world's largest privately-owned fragrance company," to create a candle and jelly (yes, you read that correctly) inspired by the hue. No details yet on how to buy those yet but color us intrigued.
