Well, for no reason that I understand, Pantone is the organization making color "recommendations" twice a year which seem to be heeded by a wide variety of businesses. Housewares, bedding, clothing - all sorts of things will be manufactured in these colors in the next 2 years.
From our perspective, if one of these colors is a favorite, this is the time to start looking for it to appear in stores!
