Mixing Metals in the Living Room: Matching IKEA Chair Slipcovers with Silver and Gold
Nothing articulates cool design more than mixing metals in your living room. Style dictated in gleaming silvers and golds just gut visitors with coolness. But with anything, less is more. You can’t go overboard or else risk overwhelming and blinding visitors. Now, as a company obsessed with color and pattern, we’ve learned how to maintain that style equilibrium without losing the dazzle. That’s why the biggest mixing metals advice across the board– from Studio McGee to Invaluable– is to choose a dominant metal. Design your room around one specific metal and then sprinkle in the variety. If you’re going for a silver theme, compliment your palette with gold accents, or vice versa– and don’t forget to throw in some warm brass and neutral iron into the mix. Whether it’s silver and gold, or gold and silver, it’s that unequal balance that brings out the best in each metal.
And in that similar vein of subtle magic, most furniture accompanying metals disappears into the background of white and beige, complimenting instead of competing. It makes sense– to overpower is to lose all impact and give your guests a headache instead. But at Rockin Cushions, we don’t settle for beige. Why miss out on all of design’s vibrant opportunities just because you want to experiment in metals? That’s why we think you can have the best of both without over-decorating. Our slipcovers shine without blinding, helping to both balance and dazzle. Here are some classic Rockin Cushions slipcovers that give power to your metals..
