A Shiny New Trend… Metallics

Metallics have been on the fashion runways for a number of years, ubiquitous in both day and evening attire.  And now this glittery trend has spread to the world of interiors.

Fabrics, wallpapers and even carpets are now using metallic materials to give bounce and shine to embroidery, patterns and surfaces that are usually thought of as matte.

Window treatments can now be found with metallic threads dancing through, be they sheers, draperies or even solar shades. Light will be intensified as it shines through so think through how much reflection you want.  Metallics on a South facing window might be blinding but it might be just what you need to softly amplify daylight for northern light.

We’ve just seen two trends collide in wallpapers by Thibault.  Ceriman on Raffia is a large scale, all over, leafy pattern, printed in gold metallic on Grasscloth. Grasscloth is really back in vogue (think retro, think Madmen) and provides a variety of organic textures as background for printed patterns.  Patterns can be printed in colors and now we are seeing printed metallics.  When printed on grasscloth metallics provide a good juxtaposition, organic feel, metallic glam.

Metallic threads add glimmer, highlighting or outlining a pattern without adding much color.  Depending on how the light plays on the surface of the carpet, the pattern will shine.  A subtle way to brighten a room!
