In 1963, Pantone established the first color matching system, referred to as the Pantone Matching system or simply PMS. Today, Pantone is the main reference tool for all industries when they work to match colors and forecasted hues. PMS uses a standardized Pantone numbering system to identify each color (for example: Pantone Red 199), making it easy for anyone to refer to a specific color. If you’re looking to add a forecasted color—or any other shade—to your home, work with Window Treats serving Brooklyn, NY. We’ll happily help you match the specific Pantone color you want.
