ICFF Trend : 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…

There hasn’t been an ICFF in the past few years where gold & brass didn’t make a big appearance. And really, if it keeps popping up in gorgeous modern versions like these, I’m totally fine with that. Last year the brass felt a tiny bit rougher and more patina-ed, but this year designers seemed to really embrace shine. From glittering chandeliers to tiny gold perforated baskets, there was something gold and brassy for every style. Here are my favorite 15 pieces from the show
