We may be well on our way to autumn, but there’s one part of summer we’re desperately clinging on to: the colors. Well, more specifically, one color. Fiery, full of life, and able to turn any vignette into an instant statement: red was the undisputed color of this summer. And we’re not ready to part with this color just yet, so we’re rounding up some of our favorite vibrant red finds in furniture and decor to keep this summery trend going year-round.
Not fully sold on bright red? Ease into the trend with this more subdued, darker shade. Faux leather fabric makes for comfortable seating, balanced out with a contemporary gold base. Inspired by both Scandinavian and mid-century modern design, it’ll make a fabulous living room addition (or dining room set, if you’re willing to shell out the requisite money for four of these).
Red sofas, which we called out earlier as an emerging living room trend to know, aren’t going anywhere. When your main seating option is this bold, you hardly have to make an effort with the rest of the room—it instantly draws the eye and commands attention. This tomato red piece is no exception.
You know the merits of going analog—despite how tricky it can be to part with your morning habit of scrolling through Instagram—so try actually putting this habit into effect with ananalog alarm clock
. You might hate having to get up early in the morning, but at least you’ll have a stylish addition to your nightstand.
Infuse a pop of color into an empty living room or office nook with this adjustable floor lamp. Its simple silhouette allows the vibrant color to really make a statement.
Get the look of a cool Parisian bistro… without the plane ticket to Paris to pick up the necessary furniture. The sleek metal dining chairs are all that’s needed to accompany a smaller table if all you have space for is a breakfast nook.
With fall comes the need for layering textiles (it’s all about achieving hygge, right?). Buy into the upcoming season’s coziness with a new rug, perfect for either warming up bare floors or laying over preexisting rugs for a cool, eclectic look.
There’s not much about this deep red, pleated, velvet sofa that doesn’t scream opulence—except maybe the price tag. At under $400, this couch is the perfect example of how to design a luxe room on a budget. While you’re decorating dramatically, try out the tonal trend by bringing in other warm-toned hues to complement this bold piece.
Decorated with only a simple red stripe design, this dinnerware set is the perfect way to make your casual, everyday dinners feel a little more upscale. Porcelain somehow always feels more high-end, and the alternate matte/glossy finish is a unique touch.
Having matching cloth napkins is one of those things that makes you feel like you really have your life together. No more using paper towels or the random assortment of napkins bequeathed to you by your Chinese food delivery person! This linen set with the most subtle pop of color is the finishing touch your kitchen needs.
Throw it back to the ’50s with these retro stools, ideal for extra seating at your kitchen island or breakfast bar. If you don’t actually need seating, these versatile pieces can be used for anything—use as a makeshift plant stand or even as an end table.
