Color is one of the attributes we're interested in exploring for collection browsing. Bearing in mind that only a fraction of our collection currently has images, here's a first pass.

Objects with images now have up to five representative colors attached to them. The colors have been selected by our robotic eye machines who scour each image in small chunks to create color averages. These have then been harvested and snapped to the grid of 117 (of a possible 138) different colors — derived from the CSS3 palette and naming conventions — below to make navigation a little easier.

You can also see how objects are grouped using the following alternate color palettes: Crayola® or CSS4. The default color palette is CSS4.
