Yellow Mass table by Alexander Lotersztain for Derlot

Nine primary coloured products that add a playful touch to spaces

Dezeen Showroom: this roundup presents red, blue and yellow furniture, lighting and products designed to energise interiors with splashes of vivid colours.

The primary colours in design are red, blue and yellow. The most commonly used shades when talking about primary colours are solid, bright versions of these, rather than pastel, darker or other muted variations.

The colours are a popular choice when designing children's toys, making the colours innately synonymous with playfulness and energy.

The selection below includes seating, lights, tables and rugs that come in one or more of the above colours, which add bold statements to interiors.

These pieces include a flat-pack red chair by Italian brand One to One, a blue lamp based on the shape of pasta by US design studio Jumbo for French brand Petite Friture and a yellow rug that is designed to look like a net full of lemons by Australian brand Derlot.

Read on to see our selection of blue, yellow and red furniture, accessories and lighting listed on Dezeen Showroom:
