Bright and enthusiastic, red creates a strong signalling effect, drawing attention to features that have been neglected. It’s also a colour that’s difficult to control in the eyes of many, and people often have reservations on whether it should be brought into a living environment.

Red tones encompass different shades, such as burgundy wine, orange or purple, plums, etc, each with their own extraordinary temperament, which can be modern and bold, but also evoke the charms of the past; When implemented in artworks, lighting fixtures, furnishings, pillows, carpets and other accessories, these help create a warm living atmosphere.
