Use of metal brings in lightness to the furniture, provided it has been designed and made well.Nothing floral or curvy works for me...however a hint of leaves and flowers may be ok.
I wanted to collate a set of pictures of metal and wooden furniture - all done right. Time and again, I go back to Scandinavian style furniture as it appeals the most to me. American Designers in the Post world war, mid 20th century did their very best in popularizing clean line furniture and establishing a indelible era in design time line - The mid century modern era. More on the eras in future posts! In the mean while, I wanted to share a few furniture pieces which could work well in a modern/contemporary, a shabby chic or an eclectic decor.
Chrome and wood display unit / book shelf
A classic designed by Charles ray - an exhibit at brooklyn museum
This little curvy Tuscan style coffee/center table may not be exactly my style..but i thought it was cute...however, the sharp hook look scares me (a definite no no with kids around)
What about this retro looking plywood and chrome sofa and chair
