July kicks off with Independence Day celebrations, so it’s only natural that we’d turn our design focus on the most patriotic of palettes. Though furniture and accessories in red, white, and blue are the perfect fit for summer due to the association of these hues with the Fourth of July, we think this combo can actually work year-round without feeling “off-season”. Need proof? Here are just a few of our favorite pieces in these all-American colors:
This eye-catching seat makes a statement with its unusual floral silhouette that inspired its very patriotic name. The bright red jersey upholstery adds extra softness to the surprisingly comfortable chair.
Though traditional in style, this elegant Guanyin figural lamp can work in more modern settings. It’s all thanks to the all-white color scheme (from base to shade) that shifts the focus to form.
Collectors take note: Modern Italian designs hailing from the ’70s and ’80s couldn’t be hotter right now. This boldly framed mirror is the easiest way to incorporate this newly rediscovered period into your décor.
Upgrade your guest room with this full-sized canopy bed. The simple lines and bright red frame give the bed a unique post-modern vibe.
An all-white sofa makes a sophisticated addition to any living room, especially when it has a more tailored silhouette. This particular design comes from Scandinavian designer Jens Risom, one of the most notable names of the mid-century modern period and beyond. Comfortable yet sleek, it’s a sofa that can go formal or casual depending on your mood (and your accessories).
Sometimes a little bit of color can go a long way. This streamlined pot designed by Gainey Ceramics (a noted Southern California-based company beloved by collectors) features a saturated blue glaze that makes a stunning addition to indoor or outdoor décor.
