agree  Joel Schaefer: actually the color itself will be named "Pantone 802 C" or something like that

agree  Russell Jones: but "is a brand name and a reference in printing" should be in the explanation, not in the answer - for glossary purposes (Moderator)
28 mins

agree  Pompeo Lattanzi: As Joel says, the particular hue will be called: Pantone XXX L. Polyglot is right, Pantone is a trademark and denotes a system to identify a particular shade of a given colour.

Reference: furniture

Reference information:
In my case they are very colorful chairs (I have 6 of them at home). They have the name/brand 'PANTONE+Number 'written on them.

For example, PANTONE 672 C it corresponds to pastel lavander ( a kind of 'rosa pastello'). Therefore, I would suggest, leave it as it is and put in brackets the translated color.

If it can be of help.. the green chair I have home, it reminds me the green colour you can easily find in the Italian hospitals... (verde acqua..)
