Viyet 8: A Passion For Purple

Purple is a color that can convey opulence or innocence, depending on its shade. In its deeper tones (think aubergine or plum), the color takes on a regal cast. In traditional rooms, it is often used instead of burgundy, giving a more sophisticated feeling. In its softer tones, it has a lighthearted quality (think lilac or lavender, which we often think of purely for kids rooms). Here are our favorite pieces on Viyet that come in a rainbow of purple hues:

Ligne Roset Alcantara Citta Sofa

Purple Ligne Roset Sofa

Why we love it: Simple lines and a rich purple hue bring a modern sensibility to this sofa. Its vibrant color adds energy to a neutral room of grey, beige, or white. Against a blue wall, it would be stunning.

B&B Italia Kalos Modern Chairs

Purple Italia Chairs

Why we love them: Designed by Antonio Citterio, these deep purple chairs have a low profile and beautiful sloping arms to make them a perfect choice for pairing next to your sofa or using in a seating group.

Jan Showers Regency Lamp

Why we love it: Another way to add purple is through accessories. And you won’t find a more stunning purple accent than this lamp. Made of amethyst-colored Murano glass, it would look lovely on an end table or desk.

Ondor Area Rug by Designlush

Why we love it: It’s not just a rug — it’s a work of art. The hand-knotted rug features an abstract design in lavender, purple, and red that adds a contemporary touch to your decor.

Aga John Persian Tabriz Over-Dyed Antique Area Rug

Why we love it: Another beautiful purple option for an area rug, this Persian Tabriz rug has been over-dyed for a unique look. It would work exceptionally well with both contemporary furniture and more traditional pieces (especially those upholstered in soft pastel hues).

Vintage Chippendale Dining Chairs by Michael Berman

Why we love them: A touch of lavender beautifully complements more traditional décor. Each seat in this vintage set has been upholstered in a high-quality linen in that very hue.

Gina Berschneider Ultrasuede Pouf

Purple Pouf

Why we love it: The soft texture of the Ultrasuede fabric brings a rich touch to this royal purple pouf. This eclectic ottoman alternative offers an easy way to bring in a new color into your decor scheme without committing to a bigger piece.

Plexi Craft Purple Z Chair

Purple Acrylic Z Chair

Why we love it: The clear purple hue emboldens the shape of this chair, giving this functional piece a more sculptural quality. It’s also a piece of exceptional quality — it’s made by shaping a single piece of 1”-thick acrylic. Use it as an unexpected accent in a living room or office.
