Colors Of The Month: Earth Tones

Though February is associated with colors like red and pink, this month, we’re going in a different direction. Earthtones like rich timber browns, sunbaked rusts and oranges, and mossy greens remind us of the beauty of nature in a month that can be cold and gray. These colors not only remind us of the renewal of the coming spring, but also infuse an interior with a subtle feeling of comfort that doesn’t overwhelm. If you’d like to integrate these hues into your décor, here are just a few of our favorite furniture and accessories in earthtones currently available for sale at Viyet:

T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings for Widdicomb Vintage Walnut Tripod Occasional Table

Why we love it: This table has a timeless design that looks just as fresh now as it did when it debuted in the 1950s. It’s also a piece from a landmark collection for Widdicomb by T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings, who was considered the most important decorator in America in the 1930s and 1940s.

Vintage 1950s Japanese Mixed Metal Vase

Why we love it: Classic in shape and proportion, this vase is made of an unexpected material — bronze and brass, instead of the typical ceramic. The detailed chrysanthemum motif (in shades of brown, gold, pink, yellow, and cream) draws the eye around the gorgeous piece.

Tommi Parzinger 1960s Lounge Chairs

Why we love them: The paprika upholstery of these stunning vintage chairs has an interesting depth that gives the color a unique presence in a room. The warm color also contributes a softness that counters the sleek form and metal legs.

Modern Oil on Paper

Why we love it: This moody work is all about contrast. The pairing of black and orange creates an eye-catching effect — black gives orange a fiery intensity, while orange brings out the inky richness of black.

Bungalow 5 Calvin Oak Side Table

Why we love it: At first glance, this side table looks as if it’s a neutral shade of brown. But, when you take a closer look, you’ll notice the intriguing variations. Here, the oak frame gracefully complements the grasscloth-front drawers that have a soothing shade of sage green.

SWAIM Scalloped Suede Armchair

Why we love it: The moss green suede upholstery can go with an unusually wide range of color schemes, making it a stylish alternative to the typical neutrals. We also love how the tight back and seat give the piece a tailored look without feeling stuffy.
