For instant cool, nothing makes a room come to life like the glistening shimmer of silver. A timeless metallic, which feels more grown up and established than its rugged brass and romantic rose-gold counter parts. This season we foresee a fresher palate when it comes to metallics, are you ready to feast your eyes on polished nickel and silver finishes?

Soft and Subtle
To create an effortlessly chic living area opt for a monochromatic palette and mix in texture with cushions and stunning light fixtures. Finish the look with Boca do Lobo’s Aquarius coffee table in silver to make the room shine!

An odd pairing at first sight, mixing metallics is possible when you team them with chrome or stainless steel. For instance, the iconic LC2 by Le Corbusier for Cassina feels edgy against the black metallic marble wallpaper by NLXL and also a little rock n’roll.

A true masterpiece – one of only twenty-five made – the Stellar mirror by Jake Phipps takes inspiration from the physical attributes of cut diamonds. The mirror’s reflective qualities radiate out with a ring of 750 individually sized and angled mirrored sections. Contrast its grandeur with a vintage piece for the ultimate eclectic look.

Minimal Metals
The Virgo dining table by Italian brand Missura Emme is a feast of simple lines and curves. It features an overturned arch with an undulating stainless steel structure with a satin finish. Its legs go from narrow to wide and are fitted to an oak wood top, which has a curvilinear form, bevelled on the perimeter inviting to position the arms.
