From its many-shaded faces to its extensive pairing capabilities (Hello, blue!), red is a color we cannot get enough of this year. Both inspirational and direction-setting, its undeniable allure and full-bodied confidence are inspiring us in all new ways.
There is just something about red. Undeniably confident, undeniably bold, it says as much in small doses as it does awash across an entire room. Which is why Creative Director Michael Amato has incorporated it into our 2019 offerings wherever and whenever possible—and, in some cases, designed product around it. Herewith, a bit about his inspiration, in his own words:
“I typically steer clear of hot, saturated colors in favor of cooler palettes,” Amato says, “but for this year I am really inspired by a Georgian writing desk I recently picked up at an antique store on Lillie Road and then paired with chairs painted in Farrow & Ball St. Giles Blue. This pairing of red and blue feels unexpected and exciting, and also super classic, all at the same time, which is what I am hoping 2019 will bring to us in the design world at large."
"I predict bolder colors and surprising pairings as designers push the limits and interiors transition from minimalist to more maximalist.”
