Spotlight on Metallic

Make It Metallic || Chic accent furniture and details that let any room shine

As the season changes and we start to lose daylight hours, you may be searching for ways to brighten up your space. In addition to having the best lighting possible, you can bring in beautiful accent furniture with metallic surfaces and details to lighten things up. Whether your style is classic or contemporary, a table, chair or chest with a metallic top, legs or hardware can bring some shine into your room. You can also use furniture with mirrored surfaces to optimize brightness. Even shiny nailhead trim outlining a sofa or recliner can help dress up a room nicely, and you can easily find shiny or matte hardware in brass, gold, bronze, copper, nickel, and chrome to complement your furniture. Style-wise, it’s fun to mix a glam metallic piece with traditional furniture to add unique character, and create an eclectic look for your home. Metallic accents work equally well in maximalist spaces that feature jewel-tone colors, bold artwork, and other luxe accents like chandeliers, and clear acrylic furniture pieces. In a similar fashion, matte metal finishes in black, silver or grey will give your space a more rustic, industrial feel, especially with details like raised rivets, hinges, and other hardware.

Accent Tables || One of the easiest ways to add a metallic touch is with an accent table. Tuck one into a corner of your den or library, place it next to a sofa or recliner in your living room, or use it as a nightstand in your bedroom. A group of nesting tables in a gleaming metal finish brings a chic look to your space, plus, you can rearrange them in different configurations to suit your needs. If you have space in your bathroom, a table with a metallic base that has a bottom shelf is perfect for stashing extra towels or other essentials.

Chests & Consoles || Add the finishing touch to your bedroom with a metallic accent chest. The entire piece might have a brushed metallic finish, or the hardware could be in chrome for a hint of shine. Likewise, set up your entryway or hallway with a console or metallic chest featuring an artfully designed base with open scrolls or other intriguing details that help brighten your day.

Chairs & Sofas || Add modern flair to your living room or family room with a comfy upholstered chair with metal legs or a metal frame. Or, draw more attention to your sofa with a style that features metal nailheads outlining the arm rests or front skirt. The contrast of soft upholstery with hard metal accents creates an intriguing mix of materials and textures that make your space more unique.
