A Showroom Peek: The Melbourne Painted Furniture Collection
Wander any home decor store and you can’t fail to notice the abundance of copper accessories. From lampshades to bowls and flower pots to door handles, copper has become an enduring fixture in home decor, and that’s no wonder. Copper works well with all neutrals. It adds instant warmth and a touch of luxury. And depending on your chosen finish, it suits modern, traditional and even rustic settings.
Copper decor items have made their way into our homes via the kitchen, which has always been their traditional “home”, but we believe that copper can play an equally important part in your dining room decor, and most especially if you have chosen painted furniture like our new Melbourne furniture collection.
Smartly styled painted furniture with oak tops, we offer the Melbourne furniture collection in four delectable shades: white, ivory, truffle and French Grey – all of which play well when paired with copper accessories.
Bright, shiny, polished copper pieces like lampshades or flowerpots add chic highlights to a modern interior. Polished copper works well with white or very pale walls, and warms white or ivory painted furniture. Add contrasting dining chairs to turn your dining room into a bright, inviting space with a touch of modern style.
Truffle is a shade much used in coffeeshops and cafes in recent times and there’s a good reason for that. A truffle finish tends to bring out the red in copper accessories and results in a lively, warm and welcoming room – just the thing you want for your dining room. Choose copper ornaments with a beaten or slightly rustic finish, add dark red napkins and table runners – and your guests will feel immediately at home.
The newest shade in our Melbourne furniture collection is the French Grey we’ve just taken delivery of. Grey has been a favoured colour for both walls and furniture all year and its popularity isn’t waning. Designers and interior decorators keep finding new ways to marry the two colours.
Pale walls, French Grey furniture, cream chairs, and shiny copper lights create a lovely calm, elegant dining room, while slightly darker walls and copper ornaments with a more rustic finish add warmth and a cosy touch in rooms with a traditional design.
All our Melbourne furniture is made to give you many years of use and pleasure. All you need to do is decide on your favourite shade. White, ivory, truffle or French Grey… which is it going to be?
