We recently featured eight of our favorite decorating pieces in black and since Halloween is right around the corner, it seems only fitting that we now talk about orange. We're not saying to mix these hues on a normal basis but for the sake of festivity you could give it a try on October 31st.

THE FARMHOUSE CHAIR

Spot welding allows this wire seat to sport such unique geometry, and powder-coating gives it its bright hue.

JUICE CLOCK

We'd be hard pressed to find a tastier looking and more environmentally minded timepiece than this one. The Juice clock by Bean Products is made from 100-percent recycled detergent bottles and comes in a lemon, orange, or grapefruit version.

Orange offcut stool byTom Dixon.

OFFCUT STOOL

Some poisonous insects and traffic cones employ fluorescent orange to great effect as a not-so-subtle warning to keep clear. For the Offcut stool, however, the eye-popping color is an open invitation to have a seat.

ORANGE BURST CLOCK

Waking up is hard to do. Running late is no fun. Looking up to realize you just watched a few too many episodes of Downton Abby is a little disconcerting. But the sting of these time-based quandaries can be quelled with a look at this bright geometric sunburst of a plywood clock, made by Chroma Lab.

FLUORO SHADE

Though it looks like Flouro's polycarbonate shade could illuminate a room on it's own, it is, indeed, fitted for a bulb. Tom Dixon is quite fond of the eye-catching color, and it can be found on handful of other items in his collection.

DF-2000 CABINETS

A pair of cabinets, constructed of plastic, wood and aluminum, unveiled in 1970 by Raymond Loewy. Each has a manufacturer's label inside one drawer. They were created in France, for Compagnia d'Esthetique Industrielle.
