ICFF 2013 Trends: Crazy About Copper

As much as I’ve loved ICFF’s trends so far this year (Green, Geometrics and Brass & Copper), I will always consider copper my first love. Classic metallics like this will never go out of style, but copper really had a moment this year and, fingers crossed, seems to be tipping over into the rose gold world, too. That rosier, pinker point of view is so beautiful and feels so modern on really simple designs- I can’t wait to see how it evolves for next year. But this year’s collection of shiny copper pendants, chandeliers, canisters, baskets, tables and chairs really took my breath away. Fingers crossed it will cross over into rose gold next year…xo, grace

Copper is my favorite! and rose gold – I would so love to see that turning up more. My wedding ring is rose gold and my collection of copper bits and pieces is always growing!


The revolving copper light from Delightfull is one the most gorgeous things which I’ve seen this year. Stunning colour and fab design.

We couldn’t agree more. Copper is simply glorious in any and every setting and stands the test of time.


OK. Here’s my problem I’m seriously into silver and metals in that spectrum, i.e. iron, pewter, platinum. Can I add brass or copper elements without the room looking weird and schizophrenic? Or should I forget the trend and just keep to what I’ve got?

you totally can! i think the key is mixing in some warmer wooden elements and fabric so you’ve got a range of texture and warmths happening.



I don’t usually love copper but these are FAB!
I think I’m in L O V E.


These copper designs make me want to incorporate them into my home, so beautiful. And warm.
