MyColor Inspired by Pantone Offers Designers and Do-it-Yourselfers a Convenient Way to Infuse Excitement into Home Decor
CARLSTADT, N.J., Nov. 1, 2011 - Budget-conscious designers and do-it-yourselfers are often looking for affordable ways to spruce up home décor. Pantone LLC, an X-Rite company (NASDAQ: XRIT) and the global authority on color, and provider of professional color standards for the design industries, and Synta Inc., a manufacturer of architectural and craft paint, created a spirited new collection of grab-and-go paints – MyColor™ inspired by Pantone®. With 49 fashionable paint colors to choose from, MyColor inspired by Pantone offers designers and do-it-yourselfers a less expensive, easy-to-use solution for adding a splash of color to any craft project.
MyColor inspired by Pantone is the first ready-to-go paint available in PANTONE Colors – no time spent waiting for tinting or mixing and no color surprises. An ultra-low VOC paint, MyColor inspired by Pantone is odor free and provides an elegant, eggshell finish that is both durable and washable. Premixed, factory-precision color ensures an exact match every time, while unique stain-blocking and self-priming qualities save time and reduce workload.
"Color has the ability to transform and reinvigorate. By simply adding a fresh coat of paint, consumers can freshen up the look and feel of just about anything – a chair, a picture frame, or even a garage-sale find,” said Lisa Herbert, vice president of consumer licensing at Pantone. "MyColor inspired by Pantone lets designers and do-it-yourselfers add character and definition to any household object with 49 invigorating hues, perfect for making a big statement with smaller interior design projects.”
"Pantone is color. It is the absolute authority on color, providing color forecasting tools and technology to design professionals around the world,” said Randy Moore, president and chief operating officer of Synta. "With MyColor inspired by Pantone now being offered at Lowe’s stores, Lowes.com and on Pantone.com, the inspiration of this innovative paint will bring do-it-yourselfers an unparalleled paint experience, offering fresh design and color opportunities for the home, office and beyond.”
