Interior designers and furniture manufacturers have fallen in love with metal! Brass and gold metals are very popular and blend great mid-century influences with contemporary designs.

Other metal finishes are important as well. We just purchased this re-purposed cedar dining table with dark metal end caps and legs for our Denver showroom. Wood mixed with metal is a fabulous look!

C.R. Laine custom furniture does a superb job of mixing modern elements with transitional. Chromed metals add an elegant touch to the interior.

Marla and I found this large cocktail table with a polished stainless steel base with a polished petrified wood tiled top on a buying trip to Bali.It never made it to our showroom as a designer saw it when it arrived in our warehouse and had to have it! We hope to source more on our next trip.

A polished stainless steel base elegantly supports this massive druzy slice from Brazil. Now that is a showstopper!

Chrome legs on the chairs and the bench work beautifully with the dark wood dining table.

We found this console table from an artisan workshop in Northern Thailand. Love the mid-century influenced dark steel base and the modern acacia wood top.

Aluminum is featured on many modern style tables. This dining table combines modern styling of the past and the future.
Tobi Fairley designed these brass arm chairs covered in a leopard velvet for C.R. Laine. 

Dark finished steel legs and an acacia wood slab top is a great look for a modern dining table. We found it while shopping in Thailand for the Wesco Fabrics showroom.

"Gold may be the new black" but metals of all colors are making a big statement in today's world of design.
