Here’s what designer Michael Roberson says about Powell Buff:
This wonderful warm tan is almost the color of dried wheat. What makes it so pretty is the way it reacts to light. When the sun hits it, it glows, and on a rainy day it casts a nice kind of cozy warm shadow on the room. This isn’t a get-excited-about color, but it’s a terrific background. Very calming in a bedroom. Great in a sitting room with almond-colored suede or gray flannel and, if you need an accent, a plummy linen.
Or you could pair it with some sexy purple Billy Haines chairs:
