New Displays in the Pratt & Larson Showroom

We've been doing some rearranging in the showroom and there's lots of new products, displays and work areas. Scraffito is a brand new line which will be officially released soon but you can have a sneak preview in our Portland showroom. We installed a beautiful new floor pad and there are 12 new concept boards to showcase it. I'll blog all about it when it's officially released.

Laying out the tile to make sure the variation in color is spread out evenly.

New Scraffito display boards
There is a new Pratt & Larson color wall with our glazes shown on 2x4's and organized by glaze family. It's next to the new work table and hangs over the credenza with all the parts and pieces so everything is close at hand while you're designing.

New Shapes and Shadow Boxes
All of the tool boards have been rehung. I think the gray wall helps to make the pieces easier to see.
The Intaglio display has been rearranged too and there are 6 new display boards.

Here's two of the new Intaglio boards.

Pantone Color of the Year - Emerald

Emerald Green
Pantone tells us that Emerald is the color of the year for 2013. I took a look at our palette and while we've been known for our rich earthy Craftsman greens Pratt & Larson also makes quite a few brighter, more Emerald greens too.

 There are beautiful greens in all our glaze families.

Green Motif

Green Paisley

 Green Small Fans

If Emerald is a little too dark for you we have a green for everyone. 
And of course we can custom color match too!

There's more Emerald green pictures on our Pinterest page too, be sure to follow us for lots of great pictures.
