Metallics are everywhere again this year and show no sign of letting up. But rather than one dominant alloy, in 2018 industrial metals and less shiny finishes will join the party, adding an organic element to this trend. Play around with the metal in your home; combine statement pieces with the gold, silver and bronze you’ve collected over the years for added visual interest. Choose two to three finishes and don’t forget to consider texture – matte, hammered or polished smooth. So whether it’s metallic fabrics or industrial dining, put your “pedal to the metal” for this elemental trend.
Brushed chrome is a great way to introduce some metal to your interiors without overpowering other elements with a shiny finish. The Angara dining collection also incorporates soft grey dining chairs to keep the look chic and industrial. Keep other accessories to a minimum to allow this range to make the best impact – it’s subtle style is easily overwhelmed!
Soft golden hues combine to create a pillow back worthy of this trend. Enter our Ritz sofa collection for endless sophistication and style. It’s great for creating a strong base for all your metallic designs and what’s more, it comes in a silver version too! This UK made sofa will make a refined addition to your living space.
Creating shimmering depths on your walls with this fantastically intricate wallpaper offering from Anthology. Their Definition collection features Obsidian – an interpretative swirl on inky colour that creates the perfect background for an eclectic mix of metallic finishes. Opt for shinier finishes if you want your metallics to stand out or go matt for a seamless transition.
Choose a dramatic matt finish to break up classic metallic finishes. These Kitano nest of tables from Cattelan Italia feature a range of matt base options so you can be sure to select the colourway that works best for you. The fabulous design is a statement all by itself so accessorise sparingly.
It’s the little things that really make this trend, so make sure you invest in some gorgeous accessories to finish the look off. We love the Hue LED light – it’s a fabulously modern design that adds a twist of metallic finesse.
