The dusty rose sofa in this living room is “impossibly chic,” says Duralee’s Allison Ruddick. “Here, it’s paired with cool metallics and sleek, Mid-century modern lines for an updated, slightly edgy look.” Chatoyant velvet in Raspberry, from Duralee’s Highland Court Intermix Collection.

WHEN PANTONE NAMED Rose Quartz one of its Colors of the Year for 2016, we knew it was going to start taking over the fashion world and making its way into home furnishings  — and sure enough, we’re still seeing it everywhere in 2017,” says Allison Ruddick, left, of Duralee fabrics. “The dusty rose color shown here is not your grandmother’s pink. It can be both a statement color as well as a neutral — it’s the perfect coordinate, pairing beautifully with shades of gold, gray, or plum, and it even holds its own against midnight black. It’s a true chameleon; in fabric, it can be rich and saturated in velvet, and (it can be) subtle when used in sheers.” Duralee has been servicing the design trade since 1952.
