The trend

This trend draws inspiration from fashion jewellery. Metallic objects — be it rose gold, copper, platinum or brass — are combined for a lustrous mix of bling. Gilded accessories, such as candlesticks and vases, are best shown off against a clean, monochromatic canvas.


Key elements

  • Contemporary decor accessories with clean, structured silhouettes
  • Pieces with varied shapes and heights
