Retro Glam

The warmth of metals such as brass, gold and bronze have made a come back in furnishings and they are adding some long anticipated excitement and glamour. Without much effort, they resonate an old world decadence reminiscent of the 1930’s and again the 1970’s.

Using touches of gold, brass, bronze and aluminum can help to lift other materials used in your interior scheme as the reflective qualities will give you contrast and texture.

Oly use these materials brilliantly to contrast their timbers and highly polished shell and resin table tops. the Kirk Buffet, the Jean Buffet and the Bruno Side Table all share that 1930’s flavour heralded by designers such as Jean Michel Frank who used simplicity of form and paired it with glamorous materials like parchments, limed oak, shagreen and brass.

On my wishlist are the Jean Buffet and the Tristan side table from Oly, they have such simple and understated form and yet they exude glamour.
