Since Pantone selected a classic blue as “Colour of the Year” two years ago, maritime hues have become one of the top colour trends in furniture design. With this trend in mind, Ostermann provides the matching edgings.
Studies confirm that blue is the most popular colour worldwide, bringing to mind endless skies and the vastness of the open sea. A room in blue is generally considered relaxing and calming; reason enough to implement the colour in diverse furniture making projects.
Matching edgings can be found in the Ostermann range, with an extensive variety on offer. In the 23 x 2mm dimension alone, the company offers nearly 80 blue variants. Under the search item “#Highlights07”, Ostermann’s experts present 10 selected edgings at www.ostermann.eu.
How to combine blue
From Alpine Lake to Arctic and Atlantic, the spectrum of colours available ranges from restrained blue-grey to intense ultramarine and maritime ocean and petrol tones. Different blues usually combine well with each other, but you should still consider your choices with care. Ostermann suggests that what applies to clothing, also goes for furniture: within the range of one colour, it is perfectly acceptable to vary and to play with different hues.
Put in a slightly lighter or darker tint and a room will automatically appear in another light, giving off that certain “something”. If you want to bring together furniture with more divergent shades of blue in one room, Ostermann recommends combining them with light woods or classic white.
From Minipearl to Excellent Matt
The use of different edging finishes can loosen up the display of colours within the blue palette further.
If your customer prefers a classic look, Ostermann suggests a proven minipearl surface. If you want to give the furniture a more current look, the “Excellent Matt” surface is recommended. In between, there are numerous gradations, such as the discreet velvet structure or the soft-matt microstructure.
All edgings available from stock
Ostermann supplies ABS edgings in standard dimensions of 23, 33, 43 and 100 x 1 or 2mm, starting at a length of one metre. In addition, these are available in any desired width up to 100mm upon request.
Post-processed edgebands finished with, for example, hotmelt adhesive coatings, retrofitted T-bars or a functional layer for the application with modern zero bondline technologies, are also not a problem. Orders placed before 4pm are sent that same day.
