UK company Very Good and Proper showed some colorful pieces paired with light wood that make the colors really pop. I especially loved seeing these in the bright white space. It felt very fresh.

Modus’ seating makes a big statement when you walk in. They also had these great white modular shelves, too (not pictured). I love that high seat back on the sofa. It reminds me of a cocoon.
