Coming Trends: Angles & Warm Metals

In 2016 we saw a resurgence of warm metals. Bronze, gold and rose gold all grew in popularity, in part, due to the Pantone 2016 color of the year – Rose Quartz – a perfect match for rose gold and other warm metals. As we move into 2017 we are seeing a continuation of these trends with a focus on mid-century metal accents. In this Ransom Culler chair by Thayer Coggin we see the warm metals accenting the classic lounge chair stylings. 

We see more examples of this trend in the Thomas O’Brian Buffet Lamp made with a hand rubbed antique brass finish and an alabaster base and the Barry Goralnick coffee table featuring Agaria marble with a French brass finish.

We look forward to following this trend and seeing what uses it might have for Cather’s Home. Another trend we have seen this year is the use of angle patterns in textiles. While warm brass can create a soft and rounded feel, an angular piece can bring a sharp accent to an otherwise muted space. A classic mid-century interior design technique that is seeing a resurgence. We can see this trend in this mid-century style console made with smoked eucalyptus and featuring random triangles with opposing grain. Another example is this cotton pillow with a down insert called “Lesson in Angles.”

In the coming year Cather’s Home looks forward to seeing how we can use these new and exciting stylistic resurgences to provide cohesive and unique spaces for our clients. Make sure to come by our retail store in Basalt, CO and see what cutting edge pieces we have in stock.
