Copper – The Metallic Highlight Of The Millennial Home
Blending sleek sophistication with homey warmth has always been the holy grail for interior designers, and at the moment, they seem to have struck gold with copper. Traces of this modish metal, in the shape of accent tables, lighting fixtures, and sundry odds and ends, have become a familiar sight in millennial homes. Joining the ranks of blissful blushes, tasteful textures, cushiony comfort and nuanced neutral palettes, the copper craze has quickly evolved into a global interior design trend.
Metals make themselves at home
Metals have always enjoyed a special place in architecture and interior design. Steel, promising durability as a structural component and sleekness as an aesthetic element, has starred in the modern, minimalist and industrial movements. Stainless steel and chrome finishes have come to symbolise sophistication in contemporary interiors, whilst gold and silver have brought ornate details and motifs to life in countless design styles throughout history. Copper strikes an enchanting balance between these metals, imparting a warm glow to the suave look of steel, and softening the grandiose air of gold to a friendly sheen.
