The new bronze age: metals are having their moment


Fine metals speak the language of luxury like diamonds and pearls do. We love furnishing luxurious homes with metal and metallic finishes and in 2015, no look is stronger than metallic.

From the vast array of over 300 luxurious brands we work with, we have highlighted Rugiano, Fendi and Visionnaire as companies who are using metals in exciting ways to complete their exclusive furnishings with a highly luxurious look.

 Bronze is the finish of the moment and we so enjoy seeing this sumptuous metal repeated in products by some of the world’s most exclusive designers. Bronze and other fine metals are not just about creating industrial chic looks, the luxurious finish of bronze pays homage to Art Deco to create a timeless quality.  

 This precious metal is so of the moment. Its warmth, richness and tactility

creates an understated refined style that can accentuate schemes and bring out warmer tones in a colour palette. It is also incredibly versatile, with shades that range from deeper, darker browns to lighter, brighter hues. Whether as an accessory on furniture or in sheet form as a wall trim or in lighting, it can be extremely subtle, used in accents rather than whole schemes, or, perhaps, to cast a sculptural piece to add a fine finish to your room. Metals are not new in interior design, but new products and finishes are redefining how we use them to create exciting looks for luxury homes.
