Furniture Trend 2018 | Fine Metal Frames
In the words of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Jay Gatsby "Can't repeat the past? … Why of course you can!". That’s exactly what we found this year at Milan Design Week.
In a contemporary twist on the style of the 1920’s, fine metal frames in opulent metallics or modern matt black combine with rich tones to create new designs, in part, dedicated to the glamorous jazz age.
- Fine tubular metal frames or legs taking prime position on new furniture designs
- Existing chair designs updated by switching wooden legs for metal
- Black metal for modern styling
- Brass or rose gold for luxury styling, predominately paired with velvet or hide
Thin metal frames create an alternative weightless aesthetic on classic styles or modern styled furniture. In gleaming metallic or sleek black, fine metal frames are paired with luxurious fabrics, opulent marbles or resort-style rattan to generate new furniture designs.
Think Eileen Grey and the famous E 1027 table.
