Welcome to the daily series “In Search Of”, where we look high and low on Krrb for one-of-a-kind items that we must have now! Today, it’s all about the color “orange” and we’ve got loads of it.

We’re ready for summer sun, short dresses and icy drinks. The color orange is a playful, bright reminder that warm days are on their way. We’re seeing it in everything from chairs to parasols and we can’t get enough of its brightness!

    I totally agree with Frank. My favorite chair was orange. It was glorious.

  • I love these “in search of” articles. The double-sided steel orange lockers from Madison are very cool. Those would look really unique in a mud room or walk-in closet of some sort. Great finds!

  • Louay Khraish

    Frank Sinatra once said, “Orange is the happiest color.” I love the four retro chairs.

  • CJ Lotz

    Search “orange” on Krrb and you can see a huge variety of furniture and accent pieces!

  • Love this, I wanted to see even more! When I scrolled down and saw the lockers my first thought was “what would you use those for?” ha! And then my question was answered! I like the idea of using it like a coat rack.

  • CJ Lotz

    You could use orange in smaller accent pieces when other colors are dominant. A blue wall would be the perfect backdrop for an orange lamp. It really just depends on how wild you want to get with color. I’m always a fan of going bold, but perhaps you’d want to first try a few smaller touches of bright color in lamps, books, or in a piece of framed art.

    Beautiful pieces here! I want to have more orange in my home, but struggle with finding the right balance with other colors (e.g., I have a bright red rug in my living room). Any tips or tricks on this? Thanks!

  • Rachel Morrell

    Love orange! I cant help but think of summer and when my husband and I lived in california. We have orange accents all through our house! It adds some, pizazz I think :-)

  • CJ Lotz

    It makes me think of a coast as well! Bright and beachy!
