If the recent trend for stark, industrial-style spaces feels a little too cold for your liking, there is an answer. The current fascination with the metallic glow of copper can add warmth to a space –something we’re all looking for in these cooler months, and the good news is the material is very accessible and popular at the moment. 

Offset against lush, dark fabrics or the natural look of polished concrete floors, the shine of a copper object will provide a moment of brightness. In a modern space, the metal also lends a sense of age, with rich patinas balancing the more contemporary elements of a room. But copper is also at home in a more traditional space, where it can bring a sense of regality to timber floors and natural fabrics in furniture, such as leather.
