Think beige is boring? These Mercedes Benz Fashion Week models on the runway at the Lala Berlin show prove that to be an antiquated notion. As a neutral, beige is a perfect canvas for highlighting unusual patterns or textures and even going avant-garde. This Splayer Sofa ($6,500) takes advantage of its neutral hue by highlighting more unexpected finishing (or should I say unfinishing) techniques, including swatches of raw cotton and burlap. While tan tones of the Flokati Wool Rug ($120 and up) are perfectly nice, the mellow color lets the rug's plush texture play the leading role.
