It’s hard not to notice the resurgence of metallic finishes throughout the home these days. Everything has a touch of brushed brass or a bold hit of bright yellow gold. It comes down to an exploration and mixing of unconventional materials. More and more we see people getting braver and more courageous not only with their colour and pattern choices but with their material sensitivity as well.
Slowly this has translated and is being explored within the realms of fabric and we are beginning to see beautiful fabric hybrids of linens with shots of steel yarns or foiling over a solid drape fabric. Velvets are becoming richer and more lustrous and when the light hits they appear to be slithering like molten metal. Woven fabrics take on the dimpled characteristics of hammered metal and a subtle satin effect. These accents are a perfect match with the opulence of brass lighting or furniture or a room full of similar tones can created a relaxed glam aesthetic.
Whether it is a splash of shimmer or a proud dash of floor to ceiling lustre it’s fair to say metallics are here to stay.
