Try to describe the colour taupe for a moment; even people whose job it is to work with colours find this a most challenging task. It could be a grey with warm undertones or a rich cream, tinged with sand or touched with pink – all of these and more can be described as taupe. But what is very clear on the other hand is that taupe is bang on trend. This indescribable – in the truest sense of the word – colour often takes the edge off furniture that is predominantly sterile white or cool grey. Taupe adds a warmth to both light and dark colours.
Taupe: indescribable – in the truest sense of the word.
This colour, or colour spectrum, if you prefer, can trace its roots back to the French word taupe, describing the varied hues found in a mole's pelt.
But it in all its diversity, one thing remains true: thanks to its neutrality, our taupe palette is the perfect accompaniment to a wide variety of woods and other materials.
