7 Easy Ways To Introduce Colour With ZINZAN Chairs

by IMAGE Interiors & Living
01st Sep 2017

Pairing Scandi simplicity with elements of fun has been one of the dominant interiors trends of the last decade and it isn’t going anywhere soon.

There are plenty of ways to inject personality into your home, but it needn’t mean braving it with a brashly painted wall. In fact, subtle touches are often the easiest way to tease out your perfect colour palette without losing yourself to it completely.

And the team at ZINZAN know exactly how to do just that with their rainbow range of chairs and bar stools. You can even customise them, with a range of colours and stains and tradable seat colours that you can change to your heart’s content. Looking for something warmer than that pale blue seat you brought in last spring? No problem, you can swap it for a new colour with ZINZAN.

Here are our top seven chairs to create a whole new palette for your home:

Elise Bar Stool in Purple, €70


Available in a range of colours and made of durable powder-coated steel, we love the aubergine hue of this Elise stool. Ideal for tucking under a dark kitchen breakfast bar or as a vase holder/visitor’s seat.

The LULU Chair in Red, €70

If you’re looking for something vibrant but still’very stylish, the LULU chair is ideal. Available in three colours, pair this red option with a rough, dark stained wooden table for ultimate impact.

The S Chair in Light Blue, €85

A replica of the Verner Panton Chair, this sleek and futuristic number is ideal for a bright, modern room or clustered around a coffee table. The pale blue will team beautifully with a sage green, or, sat near a window, its reflective finish will echo the passing sky.

Side Chair in Pink, €70

Pale pinks may have been the vibe of this summer but as we move into autumn, we’re contrasting the cooler temperatures with hotter tones and this pink Eames-inspired side chair is ticking all the right boxes.

ZINZAN RAR Rocker, €90

An update on the traditional rocking chair, perfect for nestling next to a stove or in a modern nursery. Comfortable and easily wiped down, this vibrant green RAR Rocker chair is ideal for a busy family home.

Elise Arm Chair in Yellow, €65

An alternative to the Elise chair, this armed version is perfect for after-dinner lingering. Paired with sharp white walls, this zesty yellow number will keep your dining space looking calm and collected.

Elise Stool in Red, €49

The ideal workhorse item, the fire engine red of this Elise stool perfectly complements its functional sturdiness.

And don’t forget, the guys at ZINZAN don’t like to take themselves too seriously, but quality is one thing they are serious about. After 30 years in the furniture and design industry, they have developed a keen eye for quality products. Each item is carefully selected and tested to meet international standards. They are a very fussy bunch and will only sell furniture that would go in their own homes. See for more.
