Orange has taken centre stage as a beautifully rich accent colour for home furnishings. While you probably wouldn’t want to style an entire room in this strong and vibrant colour, it’s great for making a statement. Here are our top picks for warm orange furniture and accessories this autumn.
Orange, in its varying shades, is perfect for this time of year; its autumn tones warm a room instantly and add a little bit of playfulness. This gorgeously round and tactile and brightly-coloured footstool – the Lulu by Allegra Hicks (in Chatelet Orange) – is reminiscent of a large round pumpkin and will give your feet a very comfy resting place all year round.
A chair to fight over
If you’re looking for a great statement chair with colour, texture and a mid-century style, then the Swoon Editions’ Fitz & Duke Velvet Cocktail chairs in (colour) Zinnia are perfect for you. Scallop-backed chairs with stitched channels and a line of covered buttons, the Fitz is an accent piece that’s carefully tailored to reference 1950s design, while the slightly wider, chunkier Duke has a subtle wingback. Both will be fought over in the ‘who sits where’ stakes!
Unlike Trump’s hair-do, this orange weave is both striking and ethical! Designed in a palette of vibrant colours, the Manu Rug in rust orange gives a daring splash of warm orange colour to a neutral-coloured bedroom or living room. Set off by the tightly woven wool and cotton blend, the reversible rug is embellished with a beige fringe and is ethically created by hand in India for a quality finish that will withstand regular household wear and tear.
Warm sunset glow
The statement Montserrat lighting range from John Lewis Home has a detailed leaf design that allows the light to shine through the gaps, creating a stunning orangey gold glowing effect – like a sunset or open fire – for instant ambience and warmth. The Montserrat comes as a striking table lamp or as a gorgeous, pumpkin shaped pendant light that will look stunning in a dining room.
Adorned with a striking embroidery, the OKA Chiara and Ophelia Cushion Cover ranges provide a striking pop of colour and pattern into a bedroom or living room scheme. 100% cotton base with machine embroidery, mix and match the different sizes, shapes and designs in this collection.
