Happy Friday folks. If you haven’t been paying attention to the reveals of our recently finished Griffith Park project that we have been pushing out this week, then take a second to head over to the Sunroom and Living Room reveal and ogle at the pictures for a moment and you might notice that there is a heavy dose of chrome in the decor. Don’t worry we haven’t abandoned our love for brass, but this 70’s modern meets Georgian traditional home and it’s wonderful home owners were down for bringing the best chrome has to offer into the space and I can’t tell you how much I love it in all the pictures.
We introduced you to the trend a few weeks ago on the blog, then showed you a roundup of lighting and today we are finishing up our roundups with furniture and accessories. Let’s start with furniture.
When it comes to chrome furniture in your home you have a few options. 1) go all out and get a fully chrome piece like this sculptural coffee table above or these chrome chairs and canopy bed below.
All of which totally work in their respective spaces. But, all chrome isn’t for everyone (just like an all brass canopy bed might not be for everyone) so rather than a fully chromed out piece you can introduce the trend as 2) an accent on your furniture. Let me give you a few examples.
I used to have the exact same chairs as above and this picture is really making me wish I wouldn’t have sold them.
You’ll notice that all of these rooms have chrome in them but they all say, “Hi, I am chrome, nice to meet you”. Not, “HI! I AM CHROME, NICE TO MEET YOU”. Bringing chrome in through smaller accents in your furniture is a much more subtle approach if you are looking to introduce it into your decor and something that is easily attainable not only with some of the items that we have pulled for you in the roundup but also through vintage pieces.
Which is exactly what we did in the Griffith Park project, both the credenza above and the chairs below are vintage and introduce chrome to the space in a modern way while still feeling authentic and timeless.
Last but not least, and for those of you that are a little hesitant to jump on board with chrome – let me introduce you to, “I like chrome but only in tiny little accessory sized doses”.
The decor market is heavy with chrome accessories right now (which we are loving) and they are the easiest and most affordable way to quickly bring chrome into your decor without having to commit to a trend that you aren’t quite sure of yet. See how non-committal albeit beautiful that small chrome chain and candelabra are?
Without further chrome commentary…. chromentary?! Here are a few of our favorite pieces, at all different prices, if you are into the chrome trend. Let us know how you are feeling towards chrome below and TGIF folks.
