Contemporary furniture designs are decked with a very prominent colour. Much before the coffee bean colour took the centre stage, there was an indisputable furniture colour-Brown Oak. With a series of experiments down the line, the browns took many forms and finally we have today a shade of brown, with black undertones. We call it the Espresso. The popularity of the Espresso furniture can be gauged from the fact that its consumption is nearly 400 percent more than the second most used furniture shade- rosewood.
Are you planning to get a set of furniture for your living area, bedroom, kitchen and bathroom? Do you have Espresso in your list of possibilities? If not, here is what you are going to miss by overlooking this really delectable natural brown shade.
A Rich Shade of Brown:
Modern day furniture is polished with brown paint bearing a natural appeal. The browns can be categorised in four distinct zone:
- Red brown
- Pale Brown
- Medium Brown
- Dark Brown
Shades like cocoa, chocolate, coffee bean and Espresso fall in the category of Dark Browns.
It is the not the Espresso you sip:
Most buyers looking for a dark coffee colour for their furniture confuse the Espresso with the hot brew. It is not even close to that in reality. It is almost black, but you can see that in sunlight where the woody rims suddenly appear and look brown. A twist of natural beauty labelled with extraordinary black polish. That is what experts say about Espresso. The biggest mistake manufacturers do in selling Espresso furniture is that they keep them in the same section as Browns and Blacks.
If at all they are to be identified, it can be done in white ambience. And that’s what follows as our next pointer.
Game it Up with White:
The true beauty of the Espresso furniture is revealed when set in white space. The white walls, floors and ceilings seem to heighten the luscious rich colour and impart a new definition to the curves and edges of the furniture. The best way to further enhance the magnetising effect of Espresso is to keep the woodwork limited to frames and linings. Use of fabrics and wool are highly recommended. However, leather is something you have to be very selective with.
