Gold tones- Rich, saturated gold tones and un-lacquered brass were the metal finish du jour this Spring’s market. In years past brushed nickle, golds speckled with silver/ champagne tones, chrome, even some mild appearances of copper were seen throughout but this year all that glittered was gold. From wall sculptures to furniture finishes to lighting to custom details like nail heads this metallic tone really popped against all colors and gave a sense of polish to more textural elements.
Global influence: Ceremonial Juju hats, Moroccan lanterns, Moroccan wedding blankets, African mud cloth and Kuba cloth…these rich cultural influences provided unique architectural and textural contrast to vignettes providing a well traveled feel to evoke the sense of a collected space.
Inlays and intriguing textures: capiz shell, faux bone inlay, faux shagreen, burled wood, and other unique surface textures were distinctly showcased in unique patterns, book matched designs, and other arrangements on any and all accessory items (mirrors, lamps, light fixtures, decorative boxes and trays, etc.) and even on large case goods like accent tables, bar cabinets, consoles, etc. to create really unique focal points and nature inspired visual texture that felt high end, polished, and one-of-a-kind.
