Old Metal Is New Again

Mateo Pendant Light

A couple of years ago, brass made a big comeback, now it's copper's turn to shine.

Lately, we're seeing the warmth of copper taking center stage as a new trend in home furnishings. From light fixtures, side tables and accessories, to backsplashes, flooring, and door pulls, we're happy to report, this time around copper is on a whole new playing field. It's offering plenty of kick and sass, beyond charming copper pots hanging in a rustic Country French kitchen.

Copper Lotus Hurricane & Sawyer Table Lamp

Warm and cozy comes to mind, but pair copper with white, ink, moss, olive green or gray-taupe and you've got instant style any time of the year! Imagine copper with this moss green velvet sofa, gorgeous!
