Just last month, we celebrated the Year of the Earth Dog, which according to Chinese Astrology, is associated with the Earth element. Earth is one of the most stable of the five elements in the astrology chart as it balances them all of them together. And to make the Earth element even more effective, you have to pair it with Wood and Water elements.

With this in mind, the lucky colors of 2018 are mainly earthy tones of brown and beige, with the support of green (Wood), blue (Water), and yellow accents. This combination of shades and hues makes for a more stylish mix than the expected lucky color of red, and the whole lot works so much better in contemporary interiors.

It’s always great when products can have more than one use, such as this small stool. Other than being an extra seat, it can be used as a platform for your plants or as an extra surface area for books, magazines, and other décor.
