When it comes to color, many people shy away from bold choices. But modern design demands a hard pop of color combined with more traditional basics. These cobalt blue pieces make a design statement.

Kohl's LumiSource Scooper Bar Stool is available in gorgeous cobalt blue. The 33-inch-high stool comes with a handy footrest and a price tag of $119.99 and $14.95 shipping. The Scooper Airlift Adjustable Stool at Walmart is just $58.00 with free Home Free Shipping! Savings:  $76.94 or 57 percent.






Suspended over a bar area, the Vesta 1-Light Pendant from Home Decorators adds light and beauty. It's also priced at $109.00 with free shipping. Overstock offers a similarly-styled light: One Light Satin Nickel Dual Mount Stem Pendant. It has the same suspension capability, the same bold color, and a much better price of $52.99 with standard $2.95 shipping. Savings:  $53.06 or 49 percent.




What living space isn't complete without the perfect rug? It ties the whole room together. Wayfair’s Surya Mystique Cobalt Rug, 8′ x 11′ rug is $988.09 (free shipping). Overstock.com's knockoff  Hand-Loomed Ridges Cobalt Wool Rug is $347.64 with $2.95 shipping. Savings:  $637.50 or 65 percent.




It is the little touches that finish off a room. This 4" square Cobalt Blue GEM Cube Vase can also be used as an elegant candle holder.  Glass Vases Depot offers them for just $9.99 each. Shipping varies by state. Florida, for example, is $14.00. But let’s be honest–you’ll want a grouping of these to make a statement. Amazon offers a set of 12 for $83.99 with $17.00 shipping. So their 4" Cube Vases are just $8.41 each, including shipping. Savings:  $165.00 or 62 percent (on the dozen).
