The Powerful and Subliminal Influence of Furniture Colors

The Powerful and Subliminal Influence of Furniture Colors

Happy Monday (not!) and welcome back,

Here at the Madison Seating blog, furniture is not only our business but also our passion, and we endeavor to share that passion with the greater furniture loving community at large by touching on a diverse range of furniture related topics. The one aspect of furniture that is perhaps most fascinating of all, (to myself at least) is the apparent subliminal psychological effect certain aspects of our everyday furniture can have on our lives.

I first encountered the phenomenon in an article I posted only a few weeks back entitled “Emotional Instability Caused by…Wobbly Furniture!?”, detailing the apparent effects of unstable furniture on our attitudes and emotional health, but I recently came across an equally fascinating article on the psychological impact individual colors and color combinations and how they affect people in profound, subconscious ways.

The venerated British newspaper, The Economist, published this study back in July, and claims the study is soon to be published in Psychology Science, the highest ranked peer reviewed, empirical journal in psychology today.
