From cheery gingham tablecloths to the deep hue of a glass of Bordeaux, red is a color that demands attention. Yet, it’s also a color that’s surprisingly versatile. The same red can be used in both traditional and contemporary decorating. A quiet study done in navy, for example, could be energized by using a red desk chair or red pillows on the sofa. In a sleek all-white room, adding a red accessory brings a sense of drama. Here are just a few of our favorite red pieces at Viyet right now:

Red Screen 1

The “Custom Pintura Screen” curated by Joe Lucas is a great way to introduce red into your room. This playful pattern of wild animals and plants is done in a linen fabric. A four-panel screen, it could be used in an open-concept room to define an area, such as a bedroom or a playroom.

Red Shag Rug

Want to add excitement to an all-white bedroom or living room?  The Cliff Young Ltd. “Red Angora Fur Rug” will do just that. At nearly 9′ x 12′, this richly hued (and luxuriously textured) rug is the ultimate statement.

Red Painting 1

Think bold with this “Modern Red Leaning Wall Painting.” It features a grid pattern of blue on a red background. A stainless steel frame gives support to this artwork, allowing you to rest it against the wall. Use this piece in your entryway to create a grand entrance.

Red Antique Doors 1

The “Allan Knight Antique Chinese Doors” offer something different and special to put on the wall at the end of your hallway. The faded red paint gives a subtle hint of color to these exceptional wooden doors, which date back to the 18th century.

Red Vintage Art Deco Chairs 1

The “Vintage  Art Deco Club Chairs” curated by J. F. Chen are upholstered in a red star cotton blend fabric and have a walnut frame and feet. They are sold in a set of two, and would look lovely in your living room for additional seating.

Red Painted Chandelier 1


A great way to add a bit of red to your kitchen or dining room is with this “Vintage French Painted Chandelier.” Hang it over your kitchen island or dining table for a pop of color.

Red Swaim Accent 1

Introduce a bit of red between two occasional chairs with the “Swaim Accent Table with Satin Finish.” Its top is the perfect size for setting your book or drink.

Red Sideboard 1

We love sideboards not only for their storage, but for their versatility. The “Arte & Cuoio Triangolo Sideboard” can be used to display pottery, hold a television, or of course, buffet items. Its lacquered finish has a luxurious depth.
