Thread: Color Coordinating with Capri Claret

    Default Color Coordinating with Capri Claret

    I purchased my H&M Author Chair and Ottoman from the Keeping Room a few years ago with Capri Claret (red) leather.

    I would like to purchase a sofa (haven't decided on model) and maybe a tiltback chair (Westwood with ottoman) as well.

    I am definitely not an interior designer but I would like something other than the usual brown leather sofa.

    Would a Tiburon Peacock sofa clash too much with Capri Claret Author Chair and Ottoman?

    Thoughts on a 3rd leather choice for the potential tiltback chair as well - maybe in the Tiburon, Claret, or Markle lines that have the really nice leather feel?

    Thanks,

    Joe

    Tiburon Peacock is very, very bold. My concern is that while unique, you may tire of that much brightness over time, and you'll have a a fair amount of investment in this piece. I have seen this sofa below in the H&M Showroom and it makes quite a statement. If you want bold and over-the-top, it will work with the Capri Claret in a dramatic room setting.

    A less in-your-face option that's still quite attractive is Tiburon Ocean. Still lots of color, but not nearly as much bold Aqua. Here's a bench in that leather I had in the store.

    The three softest and most luxurious leathers in the line are Capri, Quintessence and Markle. Those hides are soft as butter.

    I’m starting to rethink.

    Thoughts on Tiburon Stone for sofa instead going with my Capri Claret chair?

    If this works well, thoughts on third unprotected leather and color that goes with Stone and Claret?

    Tiburon Stone looks very nice, its a classy neutral with a darker-than-gray appearance. There are photos in the database here of items in it. And it would be easy to love with long-term.

    It's tough to recommend a color until I can see the styles things are going on and also a photo of the room they will be in. In a lot of cases the frames themselves dictate color choices. Without having more information and visuals it just not a recommendation I'm comfortable making.
