Wood flooring that is lightly stained or unstained and has a pale beige colour will provide a stark contrast to furniture made with dark woods or stains and, in so doing, will highlight your furniture by drawing the eye to it. Beige, in particular, is a neutral colour and will look good with wood in dark colours of brown, red or black.

Though it can be a bit more tricky to get right, pairing two types of dark wood will create a rich, sombre look, provided you can create a pairing with complementary colour. This technique works best with dark woods of contrasting colours, such as a black-stained wood on red flooring.
When it comes to matching colours of wood, normal rules of colour contrast apply, but ultimately, the decision is a matter of personal taste. Choose based on how you want to present your furniture and what kind of interplay you wish to have between it and your flooring.
