Thank you for your purchase  

Option #1
Because the red capet has a lot of blue in it - it may clash with a red cabinet.  Right now your color choices are very heavy and dark for a small space.    

  • I would change out the rug to a light gray shag
  • Then add the red sideboard,
  • a solid red trunk for a coffee table 
  • and then a large cabinet with Red Chinese character doors - and the sides a brown to match the TV cabinet. 
  • Maybe place a mirror on top of your TV cabinet to brighten up the piece and make it look more modern. 
  • add a mirrored garden stool to repeat the metal in your sofa
Option #2
You can keep the red rugs
  • Paint your TV cabinet a light gray - you can also mount with the mirror
  • add a light weight tall cabinet - open weave so it's not too heavy in your space. 
  • The add a sideboard that is also painted gray on the front.  And the brown stain a lighter color like the tall cabinet. 
  • Add 2 red lamps to repeat your red
  • another place to repeat the red is in the artwork
  • the gray and white print in on an accent chair will also lighten up the space. 

Possible side chair selection

Add 2 small stools and use them as your coffee table.

This red cabinet is shown with a pine mirror.  This can give you the idea - of mixing the red sideboard with a tall stripped cabinet in the same room. 

looking for a tall cabinet measuring 
150w x 220h x 60d cm
60 "w x 87" h x 18" - 23" d

What type do you have in mind to narrow the search?

02-G2527  since there is some red in the artwork and background it would blend with the red sideboard. 

02-G2268 is a very rustic looking piece and simple in design with ample storage.  Nice hardware. 

This is an old elmwood cabinet we stripped and used shellac instead of lacquer as a finish.  We beefed up the brass hardware.  We can find a cabinet we can do this to.

A very tall chinoiserie cabinet that comes in 2 pieces.  This is just an example but I know we can find one.  The sides are probably dark brown stain so it's not a tall red piece all over.

This is a large kitchen cabinet.  It showcases an open weave so that items stored can breath.  It's also great for storing wine bottles on the bottom area because it's slatted.
