Yup, else viewer dont really know what you are trying to express.
Which is what is wrong with this picture.
For every photo, the main subject should be obvious. :)

Also, I felt that the color is not "right".

Cheers!

The warm colors does makes it look old and dusty but the scene is just too messy. The main sudject is hidden by the blue canvas. The viewer wouldn't know what to focus on and will just give up and move on.
Suggest that if possible, do a close up adstract of the chair instead.

Rather cluttered with other items, so it doesn't draw viewer's attention immediately do the chair you are focusing on. Perhaps a different angle, lower, higher, closer, to eliminate other distracting things.

Contrary to what you wrote, I believe the photographer's subject of choice is the barber chair, and those other elements do nothing to focus the viewer's attention to the barber chair. Maybe your reasoning is different, but when most photographers intend for the viewer to focus on one singular subject, all other elements in the frame should point the viewer's focus to that subject, not be side subjects for "spend(ing) time studying".
