Christmas in red

Natale in rosso With Christmas approaching, the desire to prepare the house with objects, furniture and furnishings that make our spaces warm and welcoming; in addition to the classic tree, the living area is preparing to host wreaths, centerpieces and candles whose colors refer to the Christmas atmosphere: the most important are surely the gold, silver and red.

And it is precisely this hue to characterize the elements of furniture that I'm going to introduce you, to elegantly furnish spaces, not only during the holidays, but throughout the year.

Furniture in red

As we said, red is one of the colors that recalls Christmas but it is, above all, a vibrant color that evokes passion and warmth; in its various forms and nuances, is able to characterize in an original way a space or, for those who do not like to exceed, to enhance a small corner of the house.

We will present then, some innovations in furniture, all sharing the same color, and that can be chosen to give a temporary look to our home, just for the holiday season, or to characterize it throughout all the year: sofas, tables, fabrics, lighting and simple furnishings.

The first proposal is to introduce a new sofa of 2014: Peg Sofa is designed by Nendo, famous Japanese designer who, in the wake of the success in recent years has been working with the biggest brands in the industry, including Cappellini.


Starting from the armchair Peg, presented in April, 2013, was born a collection of seats made up of two-seater sofa, three seater and chaise-longue with right or left arm, all characterized by soft lines and rounded elements.
The base is made of solid ash wood or walnut, wenge stained or stained ebony, coating, however, is fixed to the structure and removable covers for pillows, available in various types of fabrics and leathers.

At home, and not only during the Christmas season, the fabrics make the difference: curtains, tablecloths, upholstery for sofas and armchairs contribute substantially to the overall performance of the spaces.

rosso The bedroom, for example, is the environment where fabrics are one of the pieces of furniture par excellence: the reds, applied on blankets, throws, duvet covers, whether they are cotton, satin, or other fabrics synthetic type, together with fantasies choices, make the bedroom warm and welcoming.

Fazzini, in its autumn-winter 2014-2015, proposes the line Bloom, satin and pure cotton canvas, and features a red and fantasy flowers. The products available are full bed, pillow cases, duvet cover and plaid, with prices ranging between  125.00 and  265.00.

We could not miss the lighting, essential for the realization of an intimate and welcoming space, especially on cold winter evenings:
IVV, historical glassmaking company, offers items for the home and for the table, synthesis of design and craftsmanship.
In lighting it proposes, in the line Bombay, table lamps of two different heights, from 33 or 53 cm, with glass base and shade, both red. May be associated with candle holders, centerpieces, vases and lifted trays, able to characterize in a stylish and original way all the environments.


The secret to the use of this vivid color even in sober places resides in the combination of the same with soft colors, such as white, gray, taupe: many interior designs have, in fact, environments total white, bright, with a few elements from the bright color, such as red.
This will create the delicate color contrasts intended to customize spaces.
If you do not want to exceed you could choose furnishings of which only some elements are colored in red.


This is the case of Kadou Coffee by Bonaldo: it is a small round table in painted metal, designed by Ryosuke Fukusa and available in black, charcoal gray and taupe.
The legs are made of metal painted branches and available in nine colors: the more classic black, charcoal gray, taupe, ivory and brown, and the most vibrant coral red, orange, green and powder pink. The table is available in two sizes: 39 cm or 50 cm.

Given the range of colors and soft colors of the floor, is a piece of furniture absolutely suited for furnishing the hous all the year long.
