Red is a color of passion, love, power and, of course, Holidays! For millennia this strong color has been regarded as an important signifier of personages of utmost importance, gestures of tremendous scope and romances that change the course of history. Red is omnipresent in all things Royal since the dawn of our civilization. It is remarkable, therefore that the red grand piano has not received more attention. But worry not – this omission is remedied right now as Lucid Pianos has embarked on the mission to give a red piano the spotlight it deserves. Many tonalities of shades of red provide a creative opportunity for designers at Lucid Pianos and Bluthner to build unique and unexpected red pianos that will surprise and delight the devotees of this eternal color. As most of our pianos these are limited editions and can be customized with various trim colors and textures such as gold, rose gold, silver, chrome and matte finishes etc.
If you are shopping for a different kind of piano than a traditional ebony – red piano may be a great choice. While daring and bright red is a classic color. Think Ferrari. There is something simple and minimal about this strong hue. Culturally we are already living with admiration for the red classics in our lives: sports cars, Marylin Monroe’s lips and all things Christmas! So while a bright colored piano may at first appear unorthodox it is in reality a timeless classic by the very virtue of being red. Red is also associated with many a humanitarian causes from Red Cross to (Red) product campaign to fight against AIDS. So acquiring a red piano not only makes a powerful design statement but also sends a strong massage that is innately understood by our collective consciousness as a fabulous choice.
