Chicago Furniture Trends: The Color of the Season

Dusty Orange


It’s about time to match your fashionable wardrobe to your Chicago furniture. Chicago is a city all about style — whether it’s fashion, furniture, or just overall flair — and this week, we’re talking all about home furnishing trends. In the fashion world, summer brought a flock of stylish dressers decked out in the color of the season — dusty orange. Perhaps you’re not as welcoming to the color orange draped on your body (i.e. varying skin tones and hair colors). But no need to fear! You can still totally rock the trendy tone, because your home is certainly not as picky as its owner.  

Wrightwood Furniture’s brand new Wrightwood Factory shipment has the furniture finds for your living room, entryway, and home office… and they’re all coated in the color of the season. We suggest you make some room for these dusty orange pieces, because we’re sure your Chicago home could use a pop of color (in every room, of course). Also, make sure to check out the rest of the Wrightwood Factory shipment… because we’re going crazy for it over here in Lakeview!

Make a Bold Statement

When you invite guests over for a summer dinner party, don’t you want your home to make a lasting first impression? Well, there’s no better way to do so than to embrace the color of the season. The dusty orange Balai Table is bright, bold, and definitely a statement piece.

It’s the perfect size for a smaller entryway that could use a pop of color or a bit of display space to make your foyer feel extra inviting. We envision the console table topped with some fresh florals and a few of your favorite family photographs, or if your entryway is little tight, try resting a mirror on the tabletop to create the illusion of openness.

Liven Up a Neutral Space

It’s rare that you see a living room that’s booming with pops of color, because let’s face it, homeowners want their living room to be a comfortable space where they can relax (and probably take a nap… or catch up on reality TV).

The trendy orange-colored Cire Opium Coffee Table will add a subtle pop of visual interest to your otherwise neutral and comfortable living room without completely overwhelming the space. Plus, it’s a stylish way to kick up your feet after a long day.

Add a Pop of Excitement

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again. Your home office is probably the most boring space in your home. It’s not the room's fault, per se, it’s just that no one in their right mind wants to work while they’re at home. But with the dusty orange Batavia Bookcase from the Wrightwood Factory shipment, you can add some spice to your boring home office.

Maybe those books, files, and office supplies will look a little less daunting when housed in a beautiful, bright orange-hued bookcase. Well, we said “maybe.”

Not only are all of these pieces finished in the hottest color of the summer, but they’re all also from the new Wrightwood Factory shipment. That’s right, the Chicago furniture store is introducing its inaugural factory collection, and each piece was handcrafted by local artisans in our Indonesian factory. That means each piece of furniture is sustainable, one of a kind, and when finished in the dusty orange color, totally on-trend. Anyone who appreciates craftsmanship and unique design will love the new shipment… so everyone. Everyone will love the new shipment.
