"Choosing the right color for any home project should be personal and inspiring which is why the new PPG Color Work Station has been designed as an all-inclusive design station for anyone looking to complete a home painting project," said Dee Schlotter, North American Color Marketing Manager, PPG Architectural Coatings. "With a palette of more than 1,700 colors, the display also provides large, designer-sized take-home color strips, coordinated palettes and magazine-like color cards to make color selection easier and more inspiring." The new PPG Color Work Station also offers a more organized display to help consumers easily identify coordinating colors. By providing "color starting points" with top colors indentified in each row, customers can see a top blue, green or beige, and then finetune it to the color that is perfect for their project. The Core Colors station features more than 1,300 colors in large 4-inch by 7-inch take-home chips, organized in rows that group complementing colors together. The Harmony Colors station takes customers from color selection to color coordination by providing 295 stand-alone colors – colors that are some of the absolute best wall colors – organized into nine personalities, styles and moods that illustrate how to coordinate paint colors with other colors in the room.
Jefferies analysts note that recent construction spending data indicates a cycle rotation away from construction-exposed names and toward industrial- and durable goods-levered firms could be playing out.
