Copper: how to introduce the trend at home

Copper: how to introduce the trend at home
Posted by James Hood

In properties across London, a new trend for industrial style interiors is taking hold. We’ve seen a rise in steel grey colours incorporated on walls and kitchen surfaces. So it was only a matter of time before copper, the colour of industrial-sized distillery tanks and pipework became the ‘in’ shade. Now, every designer or manufacturer, from Jasper Conran to John Lewis is finding a way to make copper look cool. Here are few ways you can incorporate it into your home.

Copper pots
For the person who wants to go subtle when it comes to copper coloured accessories rather than fit an entire bathtub, try pots and pans. It’s a nice way to give a hint of colour in the kitchen and will impress mates when you’re cooking for them at home. If you have a space for pans to hang on display in your kitchen – even better.

Speaking of bathtubs
Aston Matthews does a range of really funky traditional stand alone steel bathtubs that come in a range of colours. For such an old fashioned tub, it does add a sense of contemporary style. Try kitting out the rest of your bathroom in a deep, dark grey and let the copper tub be the centrepiece.

If you have the space, three hanging shades over a kitchen island or table is a great way to create the appearance of more space. Try the Verpan Pantop Pendant from John Lewis or the Hampton range, both of which have an industrial look to them. But you can also incorporate colours in table and floor lamps.

There are countless products in the stores in copper at the moment. From vases to fruit bowls. Check out items by Tom Dixon, which can be found at Liberty. The designer even has a candle in a really stylish copper tin, available at Mr Porter, and the fragrance was even inspired by London!
