Be Bold With Red Seating

The color red is meant for inciting, don't you think? It's almost like it was put on this planet to grab attention, raise the heart rate and make a piece of furniture pop like no other color. It's available in such a large gamut of hues there's bound to be a red that fits your personality, and we know just what sort of furniture piece to use as a vehicle for this bold color.

Seating. It's something many rooms require and many more benefit from, and if you have been wondering what type of furniture piece you should choose to bring a pop of red in a space, we humbly submit seating as an option. From benches, to chairs, to sofas and more, a red seat in a room is a bright and bold beacon beckoning guests (and yourself) to take a load off.

In the center of a room in a seating arrangement, a red chair will tie a space together, and along the wall in a vignette the color red will keep a piece from becoming a wallflower. If you don't believe us, just check out the evidence found in recent Apartment Therapy house tours:
