Answer
Hi and thanks for your question.  I'm a former owner of an Asian furniture and decor store and we did most of our purchasing at factories in China, so I'd be inclined to go with the red, a color found quite a bit in Chinese decor. Red goes very well with dark brown.  Good call!

I hope this was of help.
