All That Glitters Is Gold

I’m sure by now you’ve noticed that gold has made a comeback in the world of design in a HUGE way. For so long we have turned our noses up at gold (or brass), scoffing and saying “NO WAY”, as we all remember gold and brass light fixtures, water faucets, lamps and coasters, well I think it’s time we all reconsider gold, it seems to be going the way of animal print and never really leaving our design consciousness. I personally don’t have a problem with gold as long as it’s done in the right way, little doses here and there adding sparkle to our lives. I think there are several ways to incorporate gold into your design scheme and we are going to take a look at three of those ways this week by looking at gold furniture, accessories and lighting. Today we are going to take an overall look at gold furniture, both as the main color and as an accent, so get your sparkle on and enter the world of Gold, Enjoy!!!


The gold in this bathroom really pops against all the black and gray floors, it has a very masculine feel.  ( via )


A great way to get a pop of gold is in a side chair, this one is almost sculptural.  ( via )


This elegant chair hearkens back to the 20’s and 30’s, very cosmopolitan.  ( via )


This console table would be at home in several different settings, whether it’s a contemporary home or somewhere very eclectic. ( via )

Gold Furniture From Joss & Main



This Joss & Main desk is a beautiful addition to any office and would also make an awesome console table behind a sofa.


You always need a place to set a drink and this Joss & Main Gold Tray Table is perfect, the right amount of gold for any room. 


The Gibbs End Table is constructed of iron and covered in gold leaf to give some elegance to this sturdy piece. 

Gold Furniture From Wayfair


I really like the Gold Chiseled Console Table from Wayfair and Global Views, it has a ruggedness in its construction, but elegance in the gold finish. 


This Asian Gold Leaf Lacquer Cabinet has great storage while also bringing some color and Asian elegance to your home. 


Elegant and Art Deco are some words you might use to describe the Metallic Gold Coffee Table

Gold Furniture From One Kings Lane



Above we looked a gold sculptural chair and this Captain Chair in Gold from OKL is perfect for any spot. 


The Izmir Coffee Table is hand hammered and the antique finish gives it an antique feeling like you brought it home from a bazaar far, far away. 


Furniture doesn’t have to be gold from head to toe, the Lacie Barstool in Blue & Gold has just the right amount of sparkle but still could be used in several types of decor and is very fun. 

Words are my own.
