Trends come and go, but metallics have been an ongoing trend in the world of interior design with the latest addition being Copper. Copper tends to be a colour which sets itself in between the traditionalism of gold and the modernism of silver, offering a more industrial and minimalistic feel.
Copper fits the bill for all seasons – whether it’s the white and pastel colors of summer, the red and orange of autumn, or the darker shades of winter. And you don’t need to put copper all over to get the look. You can easily update a space with small details. Here are a few ways you accessorise your living space with copper:
The Copper Collection by Umbra – Umbra tends to work around a lot of different metals, Copper being one.

Another fine work of industrial design comes from Michelle Ivankovic in form of the Ribbon Wall Clock. With it’s reflective sheen and rich tone, the ribbon clock adds a touch of glamour to any room.
