An Industrial Revolution: Homeware’s Hot New Trend

Homeware Metallic Trend 2017

If you’re giving your home an update this season, there is one key trend you need to be aware of. The time has come to do away with plain, harsh metals and welcome in more subtle, buff metallic hues. Industrial chic is reclaiming the raw edge of materials such as brass, copper and rose-gold to introduce a touch of sophisticated glamour into your home interior in 2017.

From plant pot holders and photo frames to chairs and metallic-finished wallpapers, industrial-inspired metallic accents are being called upon to add warm, understated luxury details to your home interior. The reflective qualities of these metals can help to bring a room to life, injecting light and energy into your interior. The trend is also a lot more accessible and versatile than recent homeware trends, with industrial metallics suitable for complementing most interior styles ranging from mid-century cool to Scandinavian minimalism. Its versatility means that it is difficult to go wrong when accenting your home with these warm metallics, and The Hut’s only no-no is to be careful not to go over the top; too many metallic accents can make a room feel sterile, so instead opt for a more considered placement of metallic accents to achieve the best results.
