BRIGHT, BOLD AND LIVELY LACQUER

by Marisa Marcantonio


Adding a pop of color can transform a room. Brightly hued lacquer is being done right lately, from accessories to tables, there is no shortage of personality pieces that add a bit of colorful pop. After spotting life-sized obelisks from Worlds Away at High Point, I started to think about other great lacquer moments. Here are a few finds to get you on your way to living a more colorful life.

A show stopper at High Point Market, Worlds Away launched a gigantic standing obelisk, the Apollo, available in glossy red, gold white or black lacquer. Standing 72 inches high, I see it framing an entrance for total drama.

Putting a fresh spin on a classic campaign style, Bungalow 5's Tansu Side Table with brass corner details in a vivid emerald green is zingy fun. Cause girls just want to have fun.

Old school bobbin detailing add a throwback element to this Chappy Etagere from Dunes and Duchess. Five shelves and a tapered top provide the ultimate open storage and custom colors provide a match any scheme versatility.

Influenced by a pagoda and traditional lantern forms, Oomph's Palo Alto Lantern made of copper and brass is spare, giving of a lot of light from its minimalistic structure. Available in a wide range of custom hues.
