For those who like to read or relax without running the risk of falling asleep, an armchair is the ideal furnishing accessory. Less bulky than sofas, armchairs are perfect for living rooms where you want to have conversations with guests or to enhance other living room furniture. However, when choosing a colour, things might not be so easy. Is it better to have a classic armchair in dark or neutral tones? How do you harmonise the colour of the armchair with that of the sofa and the other home furnishings? Which shade should be chosen according to the type of upholstery? Luckily, there is an answer to all these questions so let’s take a look at some simple tips on how to choose the colour of your armchair.
First of all, when choosing the colour of an armchair it is necessary to consider the style of your other home furnishings. Bringing in a furnishing accessory that fits in perfectly with your home environment can contribute to making your home welcoming, harmonious and elegant.
Take a look at the ‘Cocò’ model by Calia Italia for inspiration. Alternatively, you can decide to focus on bright colours, from red to yellow, in open contrast with the rest of the furniture thereby livening up the room and giving it character.
For a more whimsical yet elegant choice, consider going for a blue, pink, purple or green velvet armchair. The ‘Madame G’ armchair by Calia Italia is a perfect match for both classic and modern style furniture.
In addition to the style of the furniture, it is also important to remember that each colour gives a different personality to its surroundings. Therefore, depending on the atmosphere you want to create in your home, you may decide to go for a specific shade.
